For the first time, the new route will see cyclists travelling along the scenic route from Sydney to the breathtaking views of the Great Barrier Reef. Held from April 2 2016 through to April 16 2016, it’s your chance to take part in a range of shorter cycles or the full 15 day ride, all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Back for its third year, this cycling event is more than just a bike ride.

“[The cycle] gives participants an exclusive insight into Variety’s vital work and how their fundraising supports Aussie kids in need,” says Variety - the Children’s Charity NSW CEO Tam Johnston.

It’s a chance to connect with the families in the local community, meet new people and be a part of changing the lives of children.
