THE ever popular summer push bike
ride days at Phillip Island Grand Prix
Circuit are back.
“We were extremely pleased with the
amount of riders we had the last time
we ran the days over the holidays so we
thought it would be a great opportunity
to allow even more people access to the
circuit during the school holidays,” said
Fergus Cameron managing director.
“In fact it wasn’t only the numbers that
pleased us it was the diversity of groups
“We had family groups, older riders,
serious riders, fitness fanatics and rid-
“The track can accommodate all these
groups together because it is extremely
safe with no cars, it’s wide enough for
passing and challenging for the fitness
fanatics because of its sweeping straights
and long demanding undulations.
“You won’t break any lap records on
the 4.5 kilometre circuit however you
will enjoy the safest and most pictur-
esque location to ride your push bike on
Phillip Island,” concluded Fergus.
The ride days for these holidays are:
Today, January 5 from 6pm to 8pm;
January 12 from 6pm to 8pm; and, Jan-
uary 14 from 6pm to 8pm.
There is no need to book, just turn up
on the day 30 minutes prior to the ses-
sion at the visitors centre to purchase
your ticket with your own bike and hel-

ments, helicopter rides, vintage tractor pulls, live
music and car displays.
The event will kick off at 10am and go through
Last year 5000 people went through the gates for
the popular event.
“That wasn’t all at once though,” Allyn said.
“People come and go through the day depending
on their interests. ”
Trucks will be on display from 10am to 6pm and
vintage tractors from 10am to 1pm.
Action on the track includes burnouts from 2pm
