Rotary Bike ride on 14th of May

The Rotary Club of Woden Daybreak is running Cycle 2016 for Ronald McDonald House Canberra on Saturday the 14th May 2016. The event will help raise funds for our local house located on Level 2 of the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children located at the Canberra Hospital. The House features 11 ensuite guestrooms for families including double, single & disability access. In addition, the House offers families communal facilities such as a full kitchen, dining room, lounge room, laundry, a Quiet Room and 2 computer nooks.

This fantastic ride is not competitive and showcases our beautiful local area, while providing an opportunity to fundraise to help support the families of seriously ill children throughout the ACT and surrounds.

Two courses will be available to cater for different skill levels, both starting and finishing at Stromlo Forrest Park. Both rides will be fun and casual.

Course 1 – 135kms

Commencing at 7am. If you enjoy the challenge of climbing 2,700 meters, then this riding experience is definitely for you! A great climbers' ride with scenic views as you pedal your way to Corin Dam and back. This ride is suited for experienced riders.
