Warning - you are viewing a past event

 The intention of the Ballarat Autumn Day (BAD) Ride is to encourage people to challenge themselves and their families to ride longer distances in a friendly and supportive event over generally quiet country roads. The BAD Ride is made possible by volunteers from the Ballarat Bushwalking and Outdoor Club and is a socially inclusive community ride and definitely not a race.
The very affordable BAD Ride has been running now for 28 years and has become an iconic event in Ballarat.  This year there is a 50km and a 107km option. The routes are well sign-posted and there are helpful marshals stationed on all major intersections. Bicycle mechanics have generously volunteered their time and expertise. Participants are encouraged to wear light or reflective clothing and have effective lights on their bicycle…especially if riding the 107 km route. St John Ambulance will be in attendance.
Participants can book online at
Entries received before April 27th are in the draw to win a Giant hybrid bike from Shaw’s Cycles.
