About the ride

Help beat cancer – make your ride count

On Friday 20 January 2017, when the bikes line up for the Bupa Challenge Tour at the Santos Tour Down Under, there will be some who have chosen to ride with a powerful reason in their heart.As the official charity partner of the Tour, Cancer Council is thrilled to offer riders the chance to take part in the biggest cycling race in the southern hemisphere and make it even bigger!

Riding hours before the pros on the morning of Bupa Stage 4, this inspiring team will fundraise in the lead up to the big day, with every dollar helping Cancer Council to continue beating cancer.

Cancer Council is committed to investing in ground-breaking cancer research, empowering people to reduce their own risk with prevention education and providing essential support to everyone affected by cancer.

With four starting locations providing various challenges, there’s a ride to suit everyone.

As part of the Ride for a reason team, you’ll have exclusive access to training rides and tips, expert fundraising support and the opportunity to win amazing weekly prizes. Plus, you’ll score an exclusive Ride for a reason Santini kit along the way!

With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real.

Cancer has taken too much from us all. It’s time to fight back and Ride for a reason.

Who will your legs hurt for?
