About

The Queen of the Classics – Paris Roubaix is one of the oldest and most gruelling one day race in the world.  For over 100 years it has forced it’s participants to ride from the south to the North over abandoned farm roads, in a bid to hold aloft a trophy of a single cobble stone.

Melburn Roobaix is furthest thing from a race, in distance, speed or spirit.  While the cobbles feature heavily, and the ride also concludes in a velodrome, this is a day to rekindle the wonder of your youth spent exploring the neighbourhood, hanging out with friends, making new ones and discovering a part of the city you never knew existed.

Dress up, ride whatever you like, the wilder the better with prizes awarded to the ‘cutest couple’ and the ‘most awesome foursome’.  Other prizes to be won are for ‘craziest contraption’, ‘dirtiest rider’ and ‘Spirit of Roobaix’ – you can even ‘Win your weight in Beer’ thanks to Temple Brewing.

Event Information

Sunday 25 June 2017  |  9am – 4pm

9am – 10am – Admission // 9am-3pm Ride Away // 3:30pm Meet at Brunswick Velodrome.

Registered riders meet at the Admission point between 9am-10am to collect their Rider Pack.  There, they’re given a map and list of checkpoints and questions to answer en route to finish at the World Famous Brunswick ‘Roobaix’ Velodrome.

From the leafy inner east to the Wild West, Melburn Roobaix explores the bumpiest sectors of cobbled lanes and alleys, lesser ridden bike routes, exploring hidden parts of the city, and embracing the spirit of being big kids on bikes.

You’re in for a bumpy good time.

 

Stopping for coffee, detours, photos and flats are all part of the journey.

Each year the route is different and the 12th annual Melburn Roobaix will be no exception.   Think bumpy.
