On Saturday 7 September, 2019 130 riders will take off from Bondi Beach to Berry on the annual bike ride to raise funds to support the work of Dementia Australia.
Now in their fourth year, the stakes have been raised. Not only has their fundraising target increased to an incredible $200,000, a group of 30 dedicated riders will be continuing from Berry down the coast to Brighton Beach in Victoria, a total of 1,160 kilometres. From 40 riders raising $56,000 in 2016, to 80 riders raising more than $130,000 last year. It just keeps getting bigger and better every year, and it all can’t be done without the invaluable support from sponsors and volunteers.
The ride will start at the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club on Saturday 7 September, riding out of Sydney’s eastern suburbs and through parts of the Royal National Park to Wollongong, visiting the dementia-friendly city of Kiama, and finishing in Berry on the NSW south coast that afternoon.
