Cycle Against the Beast – 2017 : Sydney to Melbourne

On the 20th of May, 2017, I will be setting off on my first charity bicycle ride for the Cure for MND Foundation. I will be leaving from Spotless Stadium, at first light, and intend to arrive in Melbourne, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), in plenty of time for the 12th of June. This is the day of Big Freeze 3, which is a major fundraiser for the foundation.

I haven’t fully decided, yet, which route I’ll take. However, I’ll probably go via Picton, and then shadow the Hume Highway until past Yass. From there, I’ll cut across to the Olympic Highway, and then make my way to Corowa, Shepparton, and maybe even Ballarat and Geelong, before the final push to the MCG. Please stay tuned for an approximate route profile below! As I’m giving myself plenty of time to do the ride, I may not post an itinerary.

EDIT: I have now plotted a course. 🙂

A new fundraising page has now been set up! You can donate by following this link. As always, donations of $2 and over, and you’re an Australian taxpayer (though, not sure if this is applicable to those on a Working Holiday Visa), are tax deductible.

I have every intention of making Cycle Against the Beast an annual ride.
