‘‘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.
