|L to R: Elle, Craig, Chris and Damien at Muleta's discussing marshals for the RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER.|
THE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER is a 2 day cycling event , benefiting the Peter Mac
Cancer Centre in Melbourne. The idea is that a lot of people raise money to work & sweat,
pedalling round the Mornington Peninsula on October 24 & 25, 2015.
The organisers need 40 marshals on motorcycles & scooters to shepherd the pushies. It's a
good cause. It will be a fun weekend. This is information on what you get and what you do for it.
Please apply early to be a marshall on the RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER.
Marshals are part of a MOTO SAFETY TEAM. Marshals are insured as volunteers. You
need a full bike licence and a street legal motorcycle or scooter. A traffic management ticket
and/or first aid certificate helps but is not necessary.
The RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER starts and ends in Albert Park. It covers
200 kms to Mornington and back.
Day one route: www.ridewithgps.com/routes/4762932
Day two route: www.ridewithgps.com/routes/4791775
There will be a MOTO SAFETY TEAM meeting on the Friday night and an early start on
Saturday morning for a last-minute briefing. A crew t-shirt, ID and a marshal's hi viz vest
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are supplied on day one.
Breakfast and lunch are supplied on day two.
Pushbike and motorcycle & scooter riders can camp Saturday night in Dallas Brooks
Park in Mornington. Marshals can camp free of charge if they want to stay overnight. A
truck will carry extra gear like tents and sleeping bags so the bikes don't have to carry a lot
on the ride. Secure motorcycle & scooter parking is provided.
Since Saturday nights were invented for saturnalias, there will be a knees up with two bands.
Marshals get into the party and get the first beer free.
To be a marshal on the RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER call the volunteer
coordinator, Elle, on 0402 288 757. Elle is the good looking one in the picture. Craig Davis is
the Chief Marshal.
