The ride is peloton-structured and team-based, and has built a strong reputation as a sought after experience.
It’s more fun being part of a team and certainly makes fundraising easier. Get a team of 4 riders or more together and you can collectively hold fundraising functions and assist each other in training. Fear not, if you can’t find riders to make up the numbers, we will link you with others to put a team together.
Each team will need to nominate a captain and teams will be asked to lead the peloton for several stages of the ride.
Each team will have a Team Sponsor. Find out more about Team Sponsorship by visiting the Sponsors page.
All rider levels are welcome and fully supported
Mercer SuperCycle offers all our riders a significant training program to prepare you for the challenge both physically and mentally and gain maximum enjoyment! The program is designed to allow riders to:
- Get to know each other
- Bring consistency to peloton riding skills and signals
- Give you a good idea of ride expectations during Mercer SuperCycle
A comprehensive Training Guide will be provided to you upon registration. This includes a handy calendar with a breakdown of suggested training routes (depending on your street), formats and intensity to build your technique and fitness for Mercer SuperCycle 2021. Some of these rides are group rides and others you can do independently. Our Lead Marshalls will support you through the training program and are on hand to answer any questions. This training Guide is exclusive to registered riders and will help make your planning and preparations for Mercer SuperCycle simple and even more rewarding.
