Sydney Cycling Club Ride for a Reason 2019
We're going for Broke!
This year Ride for a Reason (R4R) is heading for Broke in the beautiful Hunter Valley. It's a 162k ride through spectacular scenery, starting at Lavender Bay, North Sydney, and finishing at the Nightingale Wines vineyard where you will be rewarded with a special gourmet Finish Feast!
Since 2007, SCC’s annual Ride for a Reason (R4R) has raised over $425,000 for a variety of wonderful charities and causes. And this year, we are happy once again to support Freedom Wheels, a unique charity creating special bicycles to allow disabled kids, and now adults too, to enjoy what you love - ride a bike! What better charity can a cycling club support!
R4R is open to all experienced cyclists. It is organised by volunteer members of Sydney CC and is neither a mass ride nor a race; it's a safe and enjoyable ride with bunches of 15-20 riders each, grouped according to ability. There are a number of refreshment stops along the way, and each bunch has its own Ride Captain and support vehicle to carry your bags and supplies for the Ride. Once registered you are very welcome to join our R4R Sunday training rides leading up to the event - please contact ZXZlbnRzIHwgc3lkbmV5Y3ljbGluZ2NsdWIgISBvcmcgISBhdQ==
for our training schedule.
