We’ve got news and a special announcement coming!

Now that the holiday season is almost behind us, it’s time to make the most of the opportunities a new year brings. The 2018 Sydney to Surfers Robbo’s Ride is a great opportunity to do something important for yourself and for youth at risk in our community.

There’s only 80-odd days to go until we head off on this fantastic riding tour and we noticed you haven’t signed up…yet!

We still have places available so if you and any of your cycling friends are considering joining us, now’s the time to get together and make the commitment to register for the ride. We are strictly limited to 200 riders on this year’s ride and we expect to have a rush of registrations now as people focus on their plans for the new year.

We’d really love you to join us and if the 2018 ride is on your agenda, now is the time to:

  1. Commit to the ride and register – remember the number of riders is limited and spaces are filling faster than they did last year;
  2. Convince your riding pals to join you – share our website and facebook page with your networks;
  3. Book your accommodation (if you are not camping) – accommodation options are listed on the accommodation page of our website;
  4. Start your training – there are some useful suggestions on the training page;
  5. Start your fundraising – our fundraising page has some useful resources to help you;
  6. Ensure your bike is mechanically sound (remember, it is a long way).

Our latest news …

We are aware that some riders are having difficulty getting accommodation in Bulahdelah. As a result, we have added Myall Shores Holiday Park to the list of accommodation locations which will be serviced by the Engadine Rotary courtesy bus. Myall Shores has a range of accommodation options and they can be contacted on 1300 769 566.

We have also added to the website a facility for riders who may have a spare bed available to offer to share their accommodation (and cost) with other riders. You can also make a  ‘share wanted’ post if you’re looking for a bed. Head to our new ShareMarket page on the website to learn more.

Are you a member of one of the Australian cycling organisations? Do you have insurance cover in the event of an accident when you are on your bike? Remember, personal insurance for the Sydney to Surfers ride is the rider’s responsibility – riders are not covered by the Rotary Insurance Policy.

Bicycle NSW have come on board for the 2018 Sydney to Surfers Robbo’s Ride with a fantastic offer for new members who join up for the remainder of this financial year. Membership includes comprehensive recreational bike riders insurance along with the other benefits of belonging to NSW leading bicycle organisation.

Best of all, if you sign up as a Sydney to Surfers rider, you’ll get a MASSIVE discount on the usual membership cost! Any better and it’d be FREE! To access this discount, you have to be registered to participate in the 2018 Sydney to Surfers Ride.

And coming soon …

We’re excited!

We can’t tell you why just yet but we’ll have a special announcement about this year’s ride very soon!

Keep an eye on your inbox and our facebook page next week! And just a tip: if you or your cycling buddies are thinking about registering for the ride, you may want to get in before this news becomes public!

In the meantime, we hope you’ll decide to join the twentieth anniversary 2018 Sydney to Surfers Robbo’s Ride – and stay safe on your bike!
