Return to Batemans - travelling a different route.
The trailblazer was set to be our 2020 charity ride supporting the areas affected by the horrific bushfires. Then Covid hit and all the planning went out the window.
With the uncertainty of getting back to capacity sized events straight away, we're doing this one differently.
Due to Covid, we restructured this event using our existing BLITZ, RiderRoutes and Motocache platform, and it will now run for12 months.
At some stage we'll also schedule an included group ride, details will be posted in the forum.
MORE ABOUT THE 2020 NSW TRAILBLAZER
The 2020 trailblazer will have several loops, with the first one available on June 1st, covering around 2,000kms from the Southcoast to the Alpine region.
The loops will provide great riding, assist towns and small businesses along the way and you can ride any, all or parts of them during the 12 month challenge period.
Ride them solo while out exercising, ride with a mate, when the restrictions start to lift, ride it with a group.
The registration fee is just $150 with 50% going directly back to riders in cash and prizes for a top 10 draw, the more entries, the larger the prize pool!
You'll also receive a trailblazer windscreen and helmet sticker.
How do the local businesses and fire affected communites benefit?
By spending in the towns DIRECTLY where it's needed most, over the counters to the small businesses and family owned stores.
