MADRIDE 2 Start
Kilometres in Distance
WHAT IS MAD RIDE
In 2017 a motley group of cyclists had a dream to ride across Australia from Bunbury to Bendigo…and we did it! It was an excellent adventure for the riders and support crew as they worked together to achieve a significant milestone and for Bendigo charity MADCOW (that stands for Make A Difference, Change Our World) it provided tremendous energy and subsequent resources to enable them to more effectively support disadvantaged and marginalized people in our community.
The success of MADRIDE 1 birthed a bigger dream of continuing on to ride right around Australia with MADRIDE 2, 3 and 4. That’s a long way on a bike seat! So, MADRIDE 2 will depart Bendigo on March 28th 2020 and finish in Mount Isa just under 3 weeks later. This trip is a bit shorter…only 2527 km…but we are excited at the possibility of bringing together another multi-generational group of novice and experienced cyclists to create lifetime memories and community together and be a significant fundraiser for MADCOW to help people in our community beyond relief. MADRIDE 1 had great support and interest from lots of people as we made the journey, and we want that to continue for MADRIDE 2. So, you can find out more information and keep up to date at madride.madcow.org.au or on the MADCOW Facebook page.
