The road ride involves a total of 780km of riding [The route has a total ascent of 4182.77 m and has a maximum elevation of 1,162.6 m. ]. It probably comes as no surprise that I am not riding, but will instead be volunteering as an escort vehicle driver.

We will travel through beautiful remote Queensland and meet some of the local families that we are fundraising for.

We encourage some of the children to join us a few kilometers from the town and ride in with a pack. This is a huge event for them and they train for and look forward to for months.

Donations  are focused on supporting and benefiting children who live in the remote rural areas of the region. Beneficiaries include: Cairns School of Distance Education, State primary schools – including Mt Garnet, Mt Surprise, Georgetown, Croydon, Normanton and Karumba as well as child care centres, sports associations and more.

There is a rotating special beneficiary each year chosen from: Royal Flying Doctor Service, Burns Unit at the Royal Children’s Hospital and Children’s Services at the Cairns Base Hospital. The inclusion of special beneficiaries was in response to the overwhelming and continued support provided through several major organizations including the Queensland Police, Queensland Ambulance Service, Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, State Emergency Service, Australian Quarantine Services, Australian Customs, Australian Defence Forces and many more.
