THE LONG RIDE AUSTRALIA

Raising Awareness of Prostate Cancer and Men's Health

The Ride

We would love you to be part of our next journey

Perth, Sydney, Townsville, wherever you come from across this sunburnt country there is a group you can join to be part of our next adventure.

The Main Ride

The Long Ride 2019 to Darwin will commence on different dates depending on your start location. 

From Sydney, it will commence on 11 May 2019.

Sponsor a town

A new initiative for this ride, we are encouraging riders to plan ahead, identify a town they are passing through and volunteer to host the rides objectives in that community. It might be as simple as reaching out to he local paper, council, and community groups to explain why hundreds of bikes are passing through their town. Maybe we're overnighting in your hometown and you can help Chris organise the evenings activities.

Saturday 11 May - Narrabari

The first major gathering of riders to join the main ride is likely to occur here. The ACT riders are joining us here, and it is likely the the Victorians and SW regional NSW will too.
