Ride For Refugees
Ride individually or gather a team of family and friends and raise funds that will help bring hope to refugees locally in Australia and around the world. Grab your bike – and your helmet! and come along for a great day out. You can cycle 25, 50, 75 or 100kms. Whatever the distance, it’s all about making a difference in the lives of our refugees friends through the funds you raise.
Entry to the Centre is via Gate A, Old Castlereagh Rd
Please follow the directions of SIRC staff and volunteers to the carpark.
Check-in opens at 6:45am at the Welcome Centre.
Cycling will be from 7am until 12:30pm.
The Sydney venue provides a beautiful backdrop of water and lush greenery. There is a 5km dedicated cycling track around the centre. To complete your distance, do the necessary laps in one hit – or take it a bit easier and stop for a rest or two between laps.
To give you an idea –
25 km – 5 laps
50 km – 10 laps
75 km – 15 laps
100 km – 20 laps
For kids who are confident on their bikes there is a slower inside lane where kids can ride the complete 5kms. Children under the age of 12 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian on the track as it runs adjacent to the rowing lake (with a beach entry edge)
Parents can set up a blanket on the grassed area and easily watch the kids as they peddle or scoot round or even have a jump on the castle or get their face painted.
