After a decade of pounding the pavé during the coldest and wettest month of the year – the Tour de Melburn is a summery twist on the cobbled classic – Melburn Roobaix.
Inspired by the big bike race in France, FYXO is injecting all the fun and festive spirit – without the racing. Just like the other Tour, riders will ride in teams of two covering all points of the compass, using their brains in the pursuit of glory. Teams accumulate time bonuses for finding Melburn landmarks, far and wide, high and low. The teams with the most time bonuses up their sleeves will be awarded limited edition Yellow, Green and Polka Dot jerseys.
A Grandest Prize will be raffled to any team that makes it to the finish by days end just for enjoying the day with us – whether they make it first or last, with a musette full of points or none.
The inaugural year is one not to be missed.
