Melburn Roobaix 2016

2016-Melburn-Roobaix Event: Melburn Roobaix 2016
Distance: 40km (ish)
Date: Sunday the 26th June 2016
Location: Melbourne
Organised by: FYXO

Since 2006, FYXO has embraced the spirit of the grueling Paris-Roubaix and created a classic of its own. From the leafy inner east to the Wild West, Melburn Roobaix explores the bumpiest sectors of cobbled lanes and alleys, lesser ridden bike routes, exploring hidden parts of the city, and embracing the spirit of being big kids on bikes.
Event participants gather at a secret location, get a rider pack with an assortment of goods to complete the ride, along with many a keepsakes – but that’s only half the fun. The route you take and friends you make is what makes this event special. Stopping for coffee, detours, photos and flats are all part of the journey.
It’s a ride – not a race!
After 10 years of good times, its place is as cemented as the pave it covers as a cult classic and icon of the city. Fanatics come from every state in Australia and even around the globe. The prizes on offer are world famous – and for the categories and achievements you’d least expect. Cutest Couples, Most Awesome Foursome, Spirit of Roobaix, Best on Ground.
One thing is certain each year – You’re in for a bumpy good time.
