This year’s ‘200’ will include two new events, a dis-ABILITY event (2.5 km and 5 km) and an adventure trail ride (44 km).
Event co-ordinator/communications officer Karen Saccuzzo said the Tatura200, which will again start from Tatura Lawn Tennis Club in Albert St, was a charity bike ride raising money for the community.

‘‘Riders and volunteers may nominate their preferred local charity as possible recipients of funds from this exciting event.
‘‘The first $10 000 raised by participants will be matched by Tatura Milk Industries.’’
Ms Saccuzzo said riders of all levels were encouraged to participate in the ride, with distances ranging from 25 km and 200 km.
She said the routes for the 200 km and 100 km rides had been revised, and were uploaded on the website www.tatura200.com.au last Tuesday.
Ms Saccuzzo said registrations must be received by Tuesday, October 7 to guarantee receival of the kit about one week prior to event day.
