Local produce will take centre stage at the Al Dente Riders and Sliders event at Mount Panorama, providing for a unique finishing line atmosphere for the NAB Blayney to Bathurst Cyclo Sportif on April 10.
Spectators and riders will be able to indulge in a range of gourmet sliders and coffee from partner Al Dente, while members of the Bathurst Region Vignerons Association will join the event to provide a taste of the best local wines and beers.
The event is a new addition to the NAB B2B program and one that is creating plenty of interest.
This is the first time the NAB B2B has featured this event and it is sure to create a unique atmosphere at the finishing line.
Spectators can enjoy both the excitement of the event while enjoying fantastic local produce and I am sure competitors will reward their efforts with a well-earned lunch and refreshments while relaxing to the sounds of local musician Lueth Ajak.
The 2016 NAB B2B has attracted strong interest from cyclists with registrations up on 2015 numbers.
There are already 1511 registrations by the time BCL went to print and this number is set to grow the closer organisers get to the date.
Riders and Sliders will run from 11am through until 3pm in the Pit Complex at Mount Panorama adjacent to the finish line.
