MADRIDE 2 Start
Kilometres in Distance
WHAT IS MADRIDE 2?
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.
Now, we have another instalment of the MADRIDE heading off again on July 4th. Dave & Lewis Gillett were part of the original MADRIDE, and they want to keep riding around Australia for an adventure and to support MADCOW. This time they are riding from Bendigo, through NSW, to the Queensland border…1100km in 8 days. They will be joined by a few others and a dedicated support crew. In 2017 the MADRIDE had great support and interest from lots of people and was really helpful in resourcing the work we have been doing with homeless and vulnerable people in Bendigo. We hope that can continue this time. You can donate to MADCOW here on our home page, and will be able to keep up to date with the ride at madride.madcow.org.au.
