Bike Ride

Conference bicycle ride from the Ocean to the Outback

March 28-April 4, 2019 – 636 kilometres from Victor Harbor to Broken Hill

7 days riding (1 rest day) – average 90km per day

The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor is proud to announce that they have completed their fundraising cycle ride from Victor Harbor to Broken Hill arriving in time for the last Rotary District 9520 Conference.
We exceeded our target of $50,000 and all riders safely completed the ride without incident – except for a huge sense of achievement and a few aching joints!

The team of riders finished the Bike Ride in Broken Hill on Thursday 4 April 2019. They couldn’t have done without the great support from club members and their partners as support crew. Club President Mark and club member Leonie did a great job in organising the event that was run safely without incident.

The ride has even more significance now that our drought affected rural friends and families are struggling through such a difficult time.

It is not only farmers who need our help here, but entire communities.

All funds raised will go to Australian Rotary Health (ARH) and every dollar raised goes directly into Mental Health Research which has been ARH’s main area of focus since 2000.
