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.

I did the ride for the first time in 2013; loved it that much I have completed 5 in a row – I feel like catching up with family each time we do the ride – its fantastic to meet Father too on the rides and to get to know the staff from YOTS and of course the YOTS kids who ride – professionally organised a MUST do!

I’ve participated in this ride several times and also encouraged friends to participate.

The ride raises much needed funds for Youth off the Streets and my favourite part of the ride is the kids from the school also ride to the Gold Coast with us and you get the opportunity to watch them grow as individuals over the years and also learn more about the wonderful programs.

The Engadine Rotary Club does a fantastic job organising a safe ride for all participants. The volunteers are fantastic and you are well fed every day! The overnight stays are well thought out in great locations up the coast. The pack I have ridden is always very safe with a great bunch of people who I have shared many a cold beer over the years.

I would thoroughly recommend the ride. It’s a life changing experience!
