Around the Bay with ebm-papst A&NZ

Another year, another ride! ebm-papst A&NZ have once again participated as a team in Melbourne’s iconic ”Ride around the Bay” cycling event to raise funds for Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB).

Last week a group of 18 ebm-papst staff, friends and family headed out Mordialloc and Frankston to raise awareness of EWB, and to have a fun day riding along Melbourne’s cycling hotspot Beach Road. The riding distances of 60km and 100km felt like an easy challenge going down the peninsula, supported by a strong tail wind. The return into Melbourne was made more difficult by winds averaging 60km/h and gusts of up to 100km/h. Along with 10,0000 other riders, the team had a great day out despite the harsh weather.

ebm-papst A&NZ would like to thank all riders for being a part of the team and helping to support a great charity. Engineers Without Borders is a non-profit organisation that works within Australia and abroad to improve the quality of life of disadvantaged communities through education and the implementation of social responsible engineering projects.

As a long-standing supporter of EWB we believe that engineers can make a wide-reaching and lasting difference in the world, and we aim to support this great cause as much as we can.

This year the team has raised $1,497.50 to support EWB’s projects and is already looking forward to the ride in 2017!
