Cycling enthusiasts are once again gathering to race from Queens Garden to Albert Bishop Park in Nundah as part of the annual advocacy to end the cycle of domestic violence.

The White Ribbon Day 2018 event organised by Lifecycle Cycling Club Nundah and supported by Queensland Police Service (QPS) is happening on Sunday, November 18, 2018.

Participants will sign-on at Queens Garden from 6:30 a.m and will ride 15 km to the Nundah Criterium Track at Albert Bishop Park starting 7:00 a.m.


 


This huge annual event is open to all and is open free for spectators. Last year, more than 150 riders joined the race.

This year, there will be several timed races for participants, who will have the chance to have their bike’s serial number recorded in QPS records, in case the bike gets stolen or lost.

Male-Led Movement

White Ribbon is the largest male-led movement in the world pushing for the end of men’s violence against women.

The campaign emphasises the positive role of men in preventing violence against women. Through the movement, the group encourages men to lead in preventing violence against women.

It is rooted in the core belief that most men are not violent and that they can influence positive behaviour in other men.

To many members of the White Ribbon movement, the race has a personal significance. For White Ribbon Ambassador Tim Classuliff, this race is close to his heart.

“I became a white ribbon ambassador when unfortunately my family were devastated by the loss of my sister-in-law to Domestic Violence, 10 years ago,” Mr Classuliff said.
