We will provide mechanical support during the event, with a repair service set up at Musgrave Park and at the Wynnum Refreshment station. Further to this, bike mechanics will be roving each course, providing assistance as required throughout the day.
If you break down move off the road and set your bike upside down and wait for a repair van which will be doing laps of the course who will either repair your bike at the location you broke down, or transport you and your bike back to Musgrave Park if it is unrepairable.
If you are close to a volunteer course marshal please walk over to them and ask for help, they can call mechanical assistance to get them to you faster.
Please note: there will be more than 5,000 riders on the course at any one time, this can cause delays in our bike mechanics getting to you, if you have the ability to do minor repairs on your bike please bring your own repair kit to do so.
If you are a bike mechanic, please contact the MS Queensland office about how you can get involved with the ride, either as a rider on course or as a bike mechanic. Please call Erin on 07 3840 0822 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF YOU ARE INJURED
A medical team will be on site to assist you if anything should happen throughout the event. This service will be available at Musgrave Park and also roving around the course. The medical team will dispatch staff to your location on course if you are injured. Course marshals, volunteers, traffic controllers and police will all be able to contact the medical team to get them to your location. If you see another rider needing medical attention please notify the closest event official of the incident.
