Townsville to Cairns Bike Ride

Date: Saturday 29th July

  • The ride is a unique community event with over 300 cyclists aged 15 – 75 years that has been held annually since 1999, and this year the TCBR has raised over $5.5 million for the Children’s Cancer Institute since its beginning.
  • The Townsville to Cairns Ride is held over three days from the 27th – 29th of July in 2017.  Registration for the ride opened Saturday 4 March.
  • Participants cycle over 3 days up to a total distance of 350kms to get to Cairns, and continue to raise funds along the way.
  • It is one of the biggest fundraising contributors to the Children's Cancer Institute of Australia – who exist solely to put an end to childhood cancer.

But we couldn’t achieve these great results without the help of community-minded organisations like yours. Which is why your support of the Townsville to Cairns Bike Ride is greatly appreciated and highly valued.
