About the Ride


The Cairns Ride for MuscularRFMDCNS FB profile Dystrophy is a 100km cycling journey through Cairns and surrounding areas for experienced cyclists looking for a challenge. Everyone is welcome to register and join in on this cycling challenge. With ride guides, catered pit stops and a support team lined up, you’ll be well looked after along the way.


This year we’re also including an option to join us in walking or rolling 5km along the Esplanade as a group.


WHEN: Sunday 27 August 2017. Riders will meet on the Esplanade at 6am for registration before beginning their journey at 7am.

WHERE: Sea Eagle BBQ (not far from the Skate Park), Esplanade Parklands, Cairns

FINISH LINE: Join us on the finish line from 11.30am to welcome the riders back from their journey. We will have a sausage sizzle lunch and fantastic raffle prizes!




Registration cost is $100 until 7 July for the 100km cycling challenge which includes a custom ‘2017 Ride for Muscular Dystrophy’ jersey (you know they’ll make you ride faster) and a rider pack with goodies from our event sponsors.


There’s a nominal fee of $25 for the 5km walk or roll to cover the really cool t-shirt and a simple lunch.
