High Country Charity Ride

The High Country Charity Ride started in 2013, with just 32 keen riders this event has become the unmissable cycling event in the region. Not an easy tour, we will ride over some of the best cycling routes in Australia. We start in Wangaratta and head to Bright via the High Country rail trail. The next day we battle Mt Hotham on our way to the sleepy town of Omeo. Day 3 starts early but is by the far the best cycling of the tour, Anglers Rest, Mitta Mitta and then finishing Albury will excite any level of cyclist. Day 4 is an easy roll down to Wangaratta along the service roads to our event finish. Great cycling, good times and awesome people make this event unmissable.

The High Country Charity Ride will assist Tour de Cure in eliminating cancer by raising vital funds for the game-changing cancer research, support and prevention projects that will bring our dream of a world without cancer closer to reality.

Their ambition is to feature 10 female riders as part of this experience. Only a handful of women in the world have completed an Everesting Roam challenge.

An inspirational young Port Macquarie student James Cockshutt, came up with an amazing plan to help raise funds for cancer research.
50 children of all ages (as well as some parents) shaved or cut their hair all to raise funds for cancer research. The result from this amazing community: $8,000 raised for cancer research. 


BarCycle

The idea of a charity ride from Sydney to Byron Bay all started at coffee after a BarCycle bunch ride in late 2020.

A group of keen cyclists and friends who ride regularly as BarCycle raised much needed funds, by way of a six day tour riding from Walsh Bay, and finishing at Byron Bay.

With just twelve riders and a couple of support crew, the route to Byron wasn't easy. The tour will covered 900 kms and 8,000m elevation. Great cycling, scenic routes, fun times shared with awesome mates resulted in over $130,000 raised for cancer research.
