TKM – Ride Different is being run over 2 stages and 2 days on 28 and 29 November 2015. Covering Wangaratta to Dinner Plain (either 150km or 195km) on Saturday and Dinner Plain to Bairnsdale (165km) on Sunday this ride.

We caught up with The King’ and right hand man ‘The Hairy Eagle’ last weekend. To say they were both excited about the ride was an understatement. The guys have gone to great lengths to make sure the weekend is full of good times.

The ride is fully supported and includes all your meals and accommodation on Friday and Saturday night.  A chalet has been booked out in Dinner Plain for Saturday night activities and to make sure you’ve got somewhere to rest those legs before taking on stage 2.

Ride Different is supporting the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, a great cause. We can’t think of a better way to support a charity than by riding through what might just be some of the best cycling Australia has to offer… and all in the company of a group that likes to have a good laugh.

We’ll be there so get on board and make a difference…. It’s also the chance of a lifetime to see first hand the antics that are The King's Men.

Limited to 50 places it will be a case of first in first served.

Cost - $425 (excludes donation to the Alannah and Madeline Foundation)
