Event Time: 8am Kick off
The Australian Footbike Team will test their mental agility by each doing 8000 kicks around the 400m track… that’s a kick for each family that the Ronald McDonald Charity supports each year. That’s approx. 100 laps… let’s hope they don’t get too dizzy!
Battle of the Bosses
Event Time: 12pm Kick off
CEO’s, Managing Directors, General Managers and Licensees alike will take the start line to battle it out against each other for the fastest times. The prize? The title, quite possibly a brand-new Race Max Kickbike, and the ultimate goal – major bragging rights!
Each entrant will complete a 2 lap heat of the 400m cycling track, with the fastest times proceeding to a final kick off!
Event Time: 1pm-3pm
Whether you’re part of a business, family or a bunch of friends… come join in the fun – making every kick count!
Each team will have four participants, who will each complete two laps of the 400m cycling track, racing against other teams.
The winning relay team will be that team that overall achieves the fastest time to complete the 8 laps total.
“Have a Go”
Event Time: 3pm
If competing is not for you, come and join us for a leisurely kick around the cycling track and find out what all the fuss is about!
Session duration times for “Have a Go” will be dependent on the number of participants, however enjoy cruising around and capturing those kick moments with your buddies for at least 10 minutes.
Prizes will be available for the Battle of the Bosses and Team Relay events. The 1st prize will be awarded to the participant who completes the fastest individual lap of the 400m track from either the Battle of the Bosses or the Relay Event. Then the 2nd place prize will be awarded to the next fastest participant.
1st Place Prize
The 1st place prize for the day has been donated by Kickbike Australia. It is a Race Max 20 Kickbike valued at $856.
The Race Max 20 is an alloy racing footbike built for speed. It’s fast, flexible, and very light. The Race Max 20 gives you a smooth ride, and has been the bike of choice by world champion footbikers.

2nd Place Prize
The 2nd place prize has been donated by Kick Scooter Sydney. It is a KOSTKA Hill Fun in reflex green valued at $467.
The KOSTKA Hill Fun is perfect for people who are new to the sport of footbiking. It is suitable for adults and teenagers, has good stability and the frame size and style improves handling. It has been designed to cater for people who are looking for a leisurely ride – perhaps around the local neighbourhood or for that short commute to the shops to pick up that one essential item on the shopping list. This footbike can also be equipped with a stand, SKS fenders and other accessories.
Kick Scooter Sydney imports and sells Czech made KOSTKA scooters. These scooters cater for a variety of riders – from children and recreational riders, commuters (with a fold-up version) through to serious athletes and those into dog mushing. They also offer a range of products to further support footbiking activities and the sport of dog mushing.
3rd Place Prize
Nomad Essentials has kindly donated 2 bags as a third prize for the Kick for Life Event: a Large Sling Backpack and a Small Sling Backpack, valued at $298.
The Large Sling Backpack takes the concept of the traditional backpack, cuts the bulk, adds cross body comfort, and achieves something that standard backpacks have failed to do since their invention… it allows you to get to your belongings in an instant. You simply spin the Sling Backpack around your body to access the zips with no need to take the bag off! How clever is that? Now there’s no need to put your backpack down on not-so-desirable counters or floors. It also increases security as the backpack never need leave your side.
The canvas and inner lining are water resistant, and comfort has been increased with a padded main body strap with breathable mesh. If you need to commute on a bike there is even a cinch strap for greater stability.
It takes anything in A4 size, so your 14 Ultrabooks, large tablets and books will be right at home, along with your EDC (every day carry) items.
The Small Sling Backpack is the Large backpack’s baby brother. While a sleeker design it still has room to carry your every day items, a 2L drink bottle and even an 11 inch tablet.

- a cycling commuter,
