The Rio Tinto River 2 Reef Ride charity event is a mass participation ride, not a race, to raise funds for two local charities – RACQ CQ Rescue and Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association and to encourage more people to become active and involved in cycling. This year’s event is to be held in Mackay on Saturday September, 2019. Last year this event attracted over 1,500 cyclists. This year, it is estimated that numbers will exceed 1,600!
There are FOUR ride distances to choose from: 35km, 60km, 90km or 135km. We’ll finish at the Blue Water Quay where breakfast food stalls will be operating – perfect for your friends and family to greet you when you cross the line.
The Rio Tinto River 2 Reef Ride is a fantastic opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the glorious scenery Mackay has to offer while raising money for worthwhile causes.
