RIDE individually or gather a team of family and friends and RIDE together to raise funds that will help refugees both in Australia and around the world. Grab your bike - and your helmet! - and come along for a great day out. You can cycle the 25km course once, or you could take up the challenge of riding hard and completing 50km, 75km or even the full 100km option. Either way, it's all about helping others through your efforts and the funds that you are able to raise.
This is a family-friendly event with a short course for the kids too, as well as a jumping castle and face-painting.
Check-in opens at 8:00am, with all riders starting at 9:00am. Lunch will commence at 12:00pm. It will be a chance to thank everyone for participating and to celebrate the day. We are anticipating that all cyclists will be finished their RIDE effort and be off the course by 3:00pm.
The RIDE Route takes riders from the start/finish area at the Criterium Circuit along the Jim Soorley Bikeway to a turn-around point at the Boondall Wetlands Park approximately 12.5km away. The route is well signed, with plenty of marshalls along the way for guidance, encouragement and a friendly smiling face! The route starts and finishes with a lap of the critierium circuit. The course can be completed once or a number of times to equal 25km, 50km, 75km or 100km.
While riding there will be a drinks stations along the route, which will be there to provide a rest stop, free snacks and drinks and a friendly volunteer ready to help you with your bike if you have a problem.
Lunch will commence at 12:00pm. It will be held at the welcome centre, and will be a great chance to thank everyone for participating and to celebrate the day. Coffee and tea will be available all day in the same place.
