The Tour de Bowral came around for its third year, once again hosted by Bowral Health Club and Gym to support the Ben Mikic Foundation. From 6am-6pm cyclists peddled non-stop to promote awareness about the importance of bike safety. It was a fantastic day with participants and supporters joining forces to raise a phenomenal $9624.55.

Leading the charge was Huon-Salmon Genesys Pro Cyclist Jack Haig. Jack Haig is Australian cycling’s rising star – already the National u23 Mountain Bike champion, he also currently leads in the National Road Series having won Tours already in his debut year for the team. Jack spurred the participants along at the front of the gym in his trademark Orange Army uniform.

Our wonderful Garry Ponder donned his lycra (an event in itself!) for the cycling show-down. He peddled a solid 4 hours and 90km. Congrats Garry.

Matt Battye made an appearance whilst his son and keen mountain biker Josh knocked up a couple of hours as well. There was also strong support the Southern Highlands Cycling Club who had two bikes going the whole time.

The parents, grandparents and friends of Ben were in attendance and punters enjoyed the sausage sizzle run by the Lions Club, making for a great atmosphere.

The Ben Mikic foundation aims to make riding safer for young cyclist through education, safety and awareness programs. They also sponsor young cyclists and interact with cycling industry and government bodies to accelerate building of cycle lanes and rider friendly infrastructure.
