Hear what riders say

Paul & I would like to thank you for the amazing experience that was the 2017 Sydney to Surfers Ride.

We rode in pack 4 for the whole week.  Rod was a great captain.  He kept us all under control and most importantly, safe!  Peter was a fantastic sweep.  I struggled up a number of hills but Pete was always at my side with words of encouragement.  He rode slowly along side myself and Louise on the dirt road section, happily sacrificing what would have been a fun fast ride for him as a mountain biker.  Jackie was a great support driver.  She was incredibly protective of us, and there whenever we needed her.

You don't have to ... but why not use your ride to gather support for Father Chris Riley's Youth off the Streets? We've got some great fundraising resources to help you along the way.

Supporting Youth Off The Streets

The Sydney to Surfers Ride raises much needed funds for Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets. Youth Off The Streets supports chronically homeless and drug addicted young Australians as they work to turn their lives around. It is their goal that these young people will leave their care drug free, with a high school education, living skills and a full or part time job in hand. There is simply no better cause.
