In 2023 this will be our 8th Go for Broke event. After successfully running GFB20 under COVID in 2020 & 2021 we’re expecting a great turn out. Our events fully support riders placed in pelotons of 20, each with support cars and St John’s on course.
Unlike many other events we limit places to 120 riders with all riders allocated a speed bunch from 19km to 33km avg speed an hour. Each peloton must stay together and has two Ride Captains. When you register you pick a group based on what you think you’re average speed will be over the WHOLE course; 19–21km, 22–23km, 24–25km, 26–27km, 28-29km, 30-31km or 32-33km/h. We do allow people to change groups to ensure safety and an enjoyable day. With the permission of the Ride Captain you can go up a group. If you’re struggling to keep up with the bunch and we’ll ask you to go down a group during the ride to ensure your safety. So be careful with your selection. We allow people to change their group one week before the event.
Each peloton will have a tailing support car with food, drinks & basic bike spares. On both events until you reach the last 10km all riders must stay together in their allocated bunch. No drops. But save your energy. With 10km to go, riders will see signage that tells them they have started the GO FOR BROKE section. A this point, all riders can leave their peloton and Go for Broke. Good luck.
