  • If you haven't been physically active for a while, it is advisable to consult your doctor before commencing any training program. 
  • If you haven't ridden your bike for a while, ensure you book it in for a service before you start training. Like your car, your bike runs much better and is more enjoyable to ride if it is properly maintained. For basic tune-ups before your ride, a Bike Mechanic Station will be available at the event site at Musgrave Park. Additionally, Bike Mechanics roving on-course will also be available for basic repairs. A bike service is highly recommended before the event day. 
  • As rider insurance is not covered with your registration fee, we highly recommend investing in insurance for the day of the event, or for everyday rides. You can find out more information about the options available to you in the 'Rider Insurance' tab above. 
  • Ensure you have collected your Rider Pack and rider number prior to the event. If you register on or before Sunday 5 May, your rider pack will be mailed to you. If you register after 5 May or misplace your stickers, you will need to pick them up at one of our collection days before the ride.  
  • Using the twist ties provided, ensure you attach your rider number on the front of your bike and your helmet sticker on the front of your helmet. You will not be permitted to ride without your rider number attached. These numbers also help you to secure your photos after the ride! 
  • Check your allocated start time on the event program. Please ensure that you are lining up for the correct distance start time, if you start any earlier than your allocated time, the course won’t be ready for you. 
  • As per Queensland law, all participants must correctly wear a helmet during the ride. Remember to also bring a pump, spare tube, small tool kit and water bottle. 
  • Be prepared for all weather conditions. Wear sunscreen even if it’s cloudy. 
  • We highly recommend you start the event with at least one full reusable drink bottle or a hydration style backpack of water.  


Please take note of the Start Line for this years' MS Brissie to the Bay event is at Russell Street.

Plan ahead and make sure that you arrive no more than 15 mins prior to your allocated start wave.

You can access the Start Line assembly area from Edmonstone Street. 

If you forget or misplace your rider number, please head to the Start Line tent, where our team will be able to assist you with a replacement. It is best to place your rider number and helmet sticker somewhere you won't forget or lose when you receive or collect it from a collection point prior to the event. 

We can't wait for you to see and be part of the incredible atmosphere at the Start Line!


Our Event Village is situated at Musgrave Park and will be jam-packed with plenty of awesome live entertainment, delicious food and drinks vendors, event merchandise, photo opportunities, recovery areas and prizes throughout the day!
