Brisbane cyclers, would you like to up your biking game and gain something more meaningful aside from its health benefits? Join the “Ride for Refugees” event at the Albert Bishop Park Criterium Circuit in Nundah to help raise money for a worthy cause. 

Whether you go as a team or ride as an individual, the goal of Ride for Refugees is the same: to raise money for the millions of people displaced and forced to leave their homes due to conflict or war and persecution. These are the orphans, the homeless, and the human trafficking victims who have lost their rights.

You can make a difference in their lives by sparing your time for this event. The money raised for Ride for Refugees will go to charity programs like:

Happening at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, the 31st of Aug 2019, Ride for Refugees is divided into four courses: 25km, 50km, 75km and 100km. Each course corresponds to a pledge but you may also consider giving more to help boost the fundraising efforts.

The course starts at the Criterium Circuit for one lap to spread riders out and then exit to the left and follow the Jim Soorley Bikeway north-east. Riders cross Nudgee Road to continue on the shared path. Further along a left turn will take riders onto the Boondall Wetlands Cycleway to a turn-around point at the Boondall Wetlands Park approximately 12.5km away. The course can be completed once or a number of times to equal 25km, 50km, 75km or 100km.”
