The news of the ride comes after a highly successful event last year. At that time Council staff had little more than 48 hours notice to provide the infrastructure for what turned out to be a gathering of around 8000 people. It is anticipated that even more people will attend this year.
Armstrong sent news of his latest call out for cycling companions on Thursday, asking them to gather at Wigley Reserve on Saturday 15 January for a 10am start.
He said “Twitter ride!! Let’s show our support for Queensland and those affected by the floods.”
Mayor of the City of Holdfast Bay Ken Rollond said that Lance and his friends are welcome.
“We’re happy that Lance has decided to return to Glenelg with his very successful ride, and the additional plus is that everyone attending can help our fellow Australians in Queensland at the same time.”
The ride kicks off from Wigley Reserve Glenelg at 9am on Saturday 15 January and goes to Semaphore and back again.
