A positive spin on helping kids in need

In 2016, Australia’s most ‘spoketacular’ charity cycling event, The Variety Cycle is urging participants to challenge themselves for Aussie kids in need.

Now in its third year, the new route for 2016 will see cyclists take in the beautiful East Coast of Australia, cycling from Sydney to the Great Barrier Reef, with participants able to take on the full 15-day ride, or choose their challenge with a range of one, two and seven-day routes.

The event, which is taking place between 2 and 16 April, boasts a greater range of shorter cycles and day rides than ever before, making it the ideal training focus for everyone from weekend warriors through to elite athletes.

The range of options include the full 15-day Sydney to the Great Barrier Reef cycle (2002 kms), challenging seven-day cycles from Sydney to Byron Bay route (1023 kms) or Brisbane to Great Barrier Reef (979 kms) as well as three choices of two-day cycles: Sydney to Maitland (223kms), Brisbane to Noosa (229kms) or Bundaberg to the Great Barrier Reef (358kms), and the one-day ride from Sydney to The Entrance (104kms).

‘The Variety Cycle is more than just a bike ride; it gives participants an exclusive insight into Variety’s vital work and how their fundraising supports Aussie kids in need’ said Variety’s NSW CEO Tam Johnston; ‘Overwhelmingly one of the highlights of Variety Cycle each year is cyclists being able to meet families on route, visiting schools and local communities to donate much needed resources and equipment along the way and in 2016 we aim to make this even more special than ever before.’
