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 6:30am at the Welcome Centre. The 100km riders and any early-birders will commence at 7:00am, with all other riders (including those riding on the kids track) starting from 9:00am in their distance groupings. 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 and up onto the M7 Shared Path. Riders head out for approximately 12.5km to the turn-around point. The route is well signed, with plenty of marshalls along the way for guidance, encouragement and a friendly smiling face! 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 a chance to thank everyone for participating and to celebrate the day. Coffee and tea will be available all day in the same place.
The Kids RIDE Route is TBA and it can be ridden as many times as they like. A fun RIDE! It is required that children be supervised by their parent or guardian while they RIDE the kids route.
