A-Teams saddle up for big ride

Written on the 11 August 2009

Expect to see suits and Blackberries swapped for Lycra and bicycles over the next two months as training for the Wilson HTM Brisbane to the Gold Coast Cycle Challenge ramps up.

More than 30 teams have already entered this year’s 100km challenge ride, and as principal sponsor, Wilson HTM Investment Group’s Gold Coast office employees are encouraging the Gold Coast business community to get involved and enter their A-Team.

“The ride is great for team participation and promotes general health and wellbeing to employees. The Gold Coast office employees are all participating this year. We’re looking forward to the challenge,” says Joseph Kingsley (pictured), branch manager and investment adviser at the Wilson HTM Gold Coast office.

The Wilson HTM Brisbane to the Gold Coast Cycle Challenge is taking place on October 11 with more than 10,000 cyclists expected to take part in the event.

“The ride is not a race and any occasional rider or a moderately fit person can complete this ride,” says Ben Wilson, manager of organisers, Bicycle Queensland.

“Last year, of the 7800 riders, just 700 were from the Gold Coast. We want to double the number of Gold Coasters in the event. To make it easier to get to the start we’ve put on an early morning train running from the Gold Coast to South Bank.”

Cyclists will leave from Brisbane’s South Bank, and then head along the South-East Busway for 15km of traffic-free travel before using the ‘Velo 1’ (V1) and service roads shadowing the M1 before finishing at Southport.

For more information on how to register your team go to www.bq.org.au or pick up a team registration pack from the Wilson HTM Gold Coast office, Suite 2306, Level 3 Southport Central Tower 2, 5 Lawson St, Southport. Entries for the Wilson HTM Brisbane to the Gold Coast Cycle Challenge close at 5pm, September 28.
