Fundraising commitment: As this ride is a fundraising event, we ask all participants to commit to raising a minimum of $500. The minimum fundraising amount must be met by the cutoff date of Monday 20 May, or you will not be able to participate in ride. The reason our event exist is to raise funds for people living with MND, our charity receives no government funding and we would not be able to operate without the donations raised from events like this one.
Transport: We have arranged a bus to transport riders back to Yatala at 5.30pm on the Saturday night. The cost will be $20 per person. Cameron from Cams Cycling Collective will also be there to transport your bike on his custom designed bike trailer. You can book this with your registration but there are only 48 places available. .
