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. So, MADRIDE 2 will depart Bendigo on September 20th this year. We have 3 options this time; 6 days to Bourke, 10 days to Charleville or the whole way to Townsville which is 18 days. The trip to Townsville through the outback is just a measly 2600 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 as they seek to establish the Safe Haven project for homeless people in our community. We are looking for people to be part of the riding group, for all or part of the ride. 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.
