The Inaugural Lions Moreton Bay 100 Charity Bike Ride event was held on Sunday 18 September 2011 with 415 participants. In August 2013 the Imperial Challenge 100 mile was introduced to cater for the more ambitious cycle enthusiasts in this area and has been growing each year.
After working with Moreton Bay Cycling Club (MBCC) in 2018 Lions decided the continuation of the event would be best managed by a group of cycling
enthusiasts from MBCC.
Moreton Bay Cycling Club is one of Queensland’s most diverse cycling clubs. Through our club members and resources we have the ability to deliver safe, fun and challenging cycling activities for people of all ages and skill levels.
The club prides itself on its sense of community and welcoming friendly atmosphere.
Our Club mantra is to be Friendly, Supportive and we encourage inclusiveness.
Words made famous by the infamous Kurt Furnley Australian Para Olympian and multiple gold medalist. Our club is about people, where a passion for cycling is the common bond which brings us together. A laugh, great friends, camaraderie, shared pain, passion and plenty of good coffee are our priorities.
Continuing on from previous years MBCC will continue to support our local community so welcome Guide Dogs Queensland as our charity of choice for 2021. Guide dogs Australia is a perfect fit for the MB100 event given the fact we have a guide dog in the club with our 2021 MB100 Ambassador Dean Cameron – Silver and Bronze national medalist Tandem para cyclist.
The MB100 is not a race and we are proud to promote this fact; it is important to encourage anybody and everybody who wants to be involved at whatever level of participation is most suitable to themselves. We hope that with the experience and enthusiasm MBCC will bring to the event it will also encourage and enable new participants to enjoy the event who perhaps willthen take up the opportunity to become more actively involved in local cycling community and clubs.
