Team Brevet - Oppy 24 2016

The Hell Ride
Crazy, dangerous and stupid; or fun, fast and challenging? Everyone who owns a bike in Australia has heard of The Hell Ride, its origins trace as far back to the early 1980's when a number of VFL footballers would ride the Black Rock to Mt Eliza return route and finish with a sprint into Black Rock.
The ride has become embedded into Melbourne's cycling scene and is now the most infamous and largest bunch ride in Melbourne.
