Schrammy -C2K 2024

Cairns 2 Karumba 2024

7 days-780kms


140,000 is a very significant number, “WHAT IS IT?” you may be wondering. Well, roughly 140,000 is the number of times I will challenge myself to complete a full pedal rotation travelling 780kms from the east to west coast across north Queensland.

Raising funds for Outback kids’ Education is my motivation, riding through Queensland’s outback is a bonus.

This charity reaches an array of School’s in outback Queensland and gives them Opportunities to Grow and improve their learning facilities. To date this charity ride has distributed in excess of $1.2 million.

Together we can help continue providing opportunities for our Outback kids’ Education.

This year I will have my whole family joining me on this outback adventure –2 riders and 4 volunteers.

You might like to consider joining us on the 27th annual C2K bucket list adventure ride. If you ride 20kms you do the C2K.

Team Cardzilla

We (Cardzilla) have been a sponsor of the ride for the last five years, last year we partnered with a supplier to become the joint naming sponsor but this year we’ve committed and become the sole naming sponsor for the CARDZILLA C2K! We believe in supporting the ongoing growth of the event to ensure that the Cairns to Karumba Bike Ride continues to make a positive impact to the education of kids in remote regions that need to access distance education and the community as a whole.

We strongly believe that supporting the local community is key to our continued success as a local business and hope you can support us support them by making an affordable donation. Thank you!
