Do I need to obtain Aus Cyclng insurance for this event?
This event has been sanctioned by Aus Cycling and as a condition of this sanction all riders must obtain Aus Cycling ride membership to participate in this event. This event has been classfieid as a challenge.
For those who do not have Aus Cycling ride membership or cycling insurance, ANZUP will organise a day pass for you.
Do I have to ride for all 3 hours?
No. It’s up to you and your team to decide how long you ride for, and how often you change riders. You are free to take breaks and stop in your garage as you approach them.
Just remember, if you are in it for the prizes, the more laps you complete, the better.
Do I have to take a full day off work?
The race will be finished by 1pm, but will be followed by the awards and a relaxing BBQ. This is included in your registration fee so it would be best to stay to get the most value out of what you have paid for.
Your company might even choose to support the event through a community day that you run within your organisation.
Where will I be based on the day?
Every team is allocated a shared garage between multiple teams. These have tables, chairs, snacks and access to electrolyte water. If you want to share a garage with another team, just let us know and we can arrange that for you.
Is there parking at the event?
Yes, there is ample free parking onsite.
Do I have to fundraise?
As all of the money raised through donations goes straight into ANZUP's Below the Belt Research Fund, we would LOVE for you to fundraise as much as you can. Every cent counts towards improving the living outcomes of those impacted by below the belt cancers. Your fundraising efforts go directly towards vital dollars that will hopefully develop into fully fledged clinical trials.
The minimum amount each rider should fundraise is $500, but we know you can do better than that. Spread the word to your neighbours, friends, colleagues and family and get them to sponsor your involvement.
Where does the money go?
Since 2015, Below the Belt has raised over $2 million for cancer research.
All of the major milestones in controlling cancer worldwide have come through clinical trials, but we still have a long way to go to help every person affected, at risk or diagnosed with this disease.
Our Below the Belt Research Fund has helped our clinicians kick start new trial ideas. To date, seed funding has been awarded to 36 ANZUP members to help gather the evidence needed to develop full scale clinical research studies.

Will I receive a tax invoice?

What are below the belt cancers?
Below the belt cancers are the group of urogenital cancers which ANZUP focusses their research on. These cancers include bladder, kidney, testicular, penile and prostate cancers.
ANZUP's mission is to improve the lives of people affected by bladder, kidney, testicular, penile and prostate cancers through practice - changing multidisciplinary collaborative clinical trials.
This can be done my raising vital funds and awareness about these prevelant cancer types.
I am an inexperienced rider, how can I ensure my safety riding within a big group?
We encourage participants to observe this event as a friendly challenge rather than a competitive race. The safety briefing before the commencement of the ride on the day will adopt any necessary precautionary measures to ensure optimum safety.
Both ANZUP staff and the Entoure cycling event management team will assess any potential risks at the start of the day and eliminate them as well as encouraging all riders to be considerate and wary of all participants and their cycling abilities.
