Event Details

FYXO’s secret recipe for what many describe as the ‘best day on a bike’ you can have, attracting all branches of cycling to unite, is creating a unique flavour every year since 2006.

Melburn Roobaix is a non-competitive recreational cycling event organised by FYXO, loosely based on the French Classic Bike Race Paris Roubaix. Cyclists register to ride a course which is only revealed on the day, but is typically 40 kilometres around the inner suburbs of Melbourne, ending at Brunswick Velodrome.
Melburn Roobaix explores the bumpiest sectors of cobbled lanes and alleys, exploring lesser known parts of the city, and embracing the spirit of being big kids on bikes.

Melburn Roobaix is in no way a race. A truly unique event attracting every branch of the cycling religion. From the fanatical to casual commuters, young and old, a truly inclusive event celebrating bicycle lifestyles.

If this is your first Melburn Roobaix - Welcome!

Your day starts at a secret location disclosed a week before the event where you collect your rider pack.

Inside it, amongst other things is your map and checklist (manifest), which will allow you to safely ride the marked route - which is also available on STRAVA to aid navigation. Use the map to get to the checkpoint, use the manifest to answer the skill testing questions. You present your manifest at the end where you'll be entered into the prize draw.

It is NOT a closed course, and you will need to be wary of all other road and trail users at all times.

The route winds its way from cobbled section to section, through suburbs, across rivers and railways - to the finish at the Roobaix (Brunswick) velodrome.

It's up to you whether you ride the course in its suggested entirety. No penalties for going your own way because the event is 'fun ride' and NOT a race.

Every year is different - and we like to keep it fresh. We've had donut stops, heart break hills with cheer squads, random marching bands playing, as well as neighbours coming out to cheer riders on. If you knew what to expect it wouldn't be as magical, so we like to keep each years route and activations a surprise.

One thing you can be sure of is a great time in the saddle with like minded people.
