Strade Bianche 2019 – Cycling to Serve
March 28 to April 4, 2019
636 kms from Victor Harbor to Broken Hill
7 days – 1 rest day
Average 90 kms per day
We will be cycling from Victor Harbor to Broken Hill arriving in time for the last Rotary District 9520 Conference
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.
ARH was established in 1981 and has contributed over $40 million into health research – “In Australia, by Australians, for Australians”.
“I commend the Rotary Club of Victor Harbor for this wonderful initiative which will not only raise much needed funds for research into mental health through our own Australian Rotary Health, one of the largest independent funds of mental health research within Australia, but will increase awareness of mental health issues within rural communities. This bike ride – from the ocean to the outback – is a great example of Rotarians as People of Action!”
Kim Harvey, District Governor 2018-2019

Rotary Ride is a great day out which will take place roughly on or around Father’s Day weekend, 15th and 16th June 2019. Your local Rotary club organises a cycling event, a static bike ride, an easy going family route or something with a longer distance, to support prostate cancer charities up and down the country.
The charities being supported include Prostate Cancer UK, Prostate Scotland, Prostate Cymru and The Irish Cancer Society. Some clubs are backing local prostate cancer charities.
Hundreds of members of the public, just like you, join in and get pedalling to raise money for prostate cancer support. Please join us and find your nearest Rotary Ride event and have a lovely day out in the sunshine*.
Fun and family ride
This is for all ages and abilities. This is an ideal way for beginners, families and youngsters to get involved through an event that is fun for all.
For the more established riders. Give yourself a challenge by taking part in a long distance route.
You don’t have to cycle the length and breadth of the country to take part, in fact you don’t even need to go anywhere. A static ride involves jumping on an exercise bike and is a great way to work as part of a team by taking turns riding to a goal distance.

World Championships 2019 - Cycling To Serve
November 23, 2019
The Ride to End Polio is a bicycling fundraiser hosted by Rotary District 5500 and held each November in Tucson, Arizona, USA, in conjunction with El Tour de Tucson, one of the largest annual bicycling events in the US. El Tour, organized by Perimeter Bicycling Association of America, annually attracts more than 8,000 cyclists. In 2017, 125 Rotarians came from as far as Germany, France and Australia to ride in the event. Cyclists can ride distances ranging from a half-mile fun ride to the full 100 miles and typically collect pledges for each mile ridden. If you can’t make it to Tucson you can participate by riding a stationary bike in your home or gym and collect pledges for the number of minutes you ride. In addition to the ride itself, District 5500 puts on a celebration banquet on the eve of the ride, provides food, drink and massage for Rotarians at the finish line, and staffs the largest aid station on the ride. There are lots of volunteer opportunities for Rotarians, friends and family not riding in the event.
Riders can choose from a variety of distances including: 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles. Those who ride infrequently can choose a ¼ mile or 5 mile Fun Ride. Indoor cyclists can ride up to 90 minutes.
