COGENT AGF CLASSIC
WEDNESDAY 6TH MARCH 2019
Join us on Wednesday 6th March for the third annual Cogent AGF Classic – an exclusive one-day road cycling event for Cogent partners and friends.
National cycling safety advocates, The Amy Gillett Foundation (AGF), is seeking richer relationships with tech companies and tech leaders – partially as a means to fundraise, but also to collaborate on ways that technology will impact on, and can be used to improve road safety for cyclists..
Cogent’s objective for the day is to raise awareness of the work done by the Amy Gillett Foundation, and provide information and an update on their campaigns and projects.
This is a chance to share the road with other leaders from Melbourne’s tech industry and some of Australia’s cycling greats. Past guests have included Phil Anderson, Lisa Jacobs, Wade Wallace and Darren Baum.
Riders will be broken into groups of 15-20, completing either a 50km, 70km or 100km route that will leave from the RACV Club in Healesville, beginning and ending in the same spot. Following this will be time (and facilities) for showers and a gourmet buffet lunch with guest speakers drawn from ex-professionals and cycling industry company founders.
Each on-road group will have its own ride leader and support vehicle. The Cogent AGF Classic aspires to be inclusive of all levels of riders but to maintain safe on-road riding conditions it is a requirement that you are comfortable riding at around 20km/h for a few hours. If you aren’t sure about this then please feel free to get in touch with us to discuss (and maybe do a test ride together).
All you need to bring is your bike and cycling gear. Any specific requirements will be provided closer to the day.
Prizes for the 2019 Cogent AGF Classic will be announced shortly. Please see below list of prizes from the 2018 event:
