Lithgow to Bathurst Cycle

May 22 @ 8:00 pm - May 24 @ 2:00 pm

$300

Overview

Riding through some of the best countryside NSW has to offer – this ride is all about challenging yourself whilst raising money to help people in need…. both here and abroad.

Here: Rural NSW has suffered from one of the worst droughts on record and has also recently been impacted by the devastating bushfires. We’ll be injecting some much needed funds into the local communities along the cycling route. We’ll be supporting locals by; purchasing brekky, dinner and lunch in the communities we visit. We’ll also be supporting the local tourism industry, staying in two quality motels along the way.

Abroad: We’ll be aiming raise enough money to send 15 children to school in Tanzania. This is an opportunity to give the gift of education to children in need. Helping to empower leaders for tomorrow, and break the poverty cycle for a nation.
