Event Details

Sydney Cycling Club Ride for a Reason 2018

Since 2007, Sydney Cycling Club's annual charity event Ride for a Reason (R4R) has raised over $405,000 for a variety of wonderful charities and causes.

This year, we are very happy to announce Sydney CC is for the second time supporting Freedom Wheels TAD NSW as its charity of choice for 2018. Freedom Wheels is a unique charity creating special bicycles to allow disabled kids to enjoy what you love - ride a bike! What better charity can a cycling club support!

R4R is open to all experienced cyclists. It is organised by volunteer members of Sydney CC. It is not a mass ride nor a race; it's a safe and enjoyable ride with bunches of 15-20 riders each, grouped according to ability. There are a number of refreshment stops along the way, and each bunch has its own Ride Captain and support vehicle to carry your bags and supplies for the Ride.

New course - two distances!

This year we have two scenic and challenging new rides to choose from; a long 210k course and shorter 150k route. 

Please note: Courses are subject to adjustments before 29 September though distances will remain as close to the original mapped route as possible.

Both options start and finish in Centennial Park, where an event BBQ will also be ready and waiting at Fairland Pavilion to welcome everyone home.

  • R4R Long Course:  210km + 2700m. Long course includes a light lunch stop midway
  • R4R Short Course: 150km + 1945m. Short course does not include a designated stop, but there are plenty of cafes, etc. along the route where bunches can choose to stop as desired.


If you have last year's R4R jersey please wear it. Alternatively you can wear your Club jersey, or purchase a new R4R 2018 jersey using this link: Champion System.  

The Champion System online store is open until midnight 26 August 2018. Delivery is expected around 21 September. SHIPPING: Option for either group or individual shipping. Group = pick up from Turbo Studio at Cnr Darley Road and Hooper Lane, Randwick during business hours (see website);  Individual = $15 postage and packing.

Registration and Fundraising

Entry is $85.00 for the long course and $75.00 for the short course for Cycling Australia (CA) members, including Eventbrite's processing fee. Insurance for the Ride is provided by CA as a benefit of membership. Non-CA members need to pay an additional $11.50 insurance fee for the event (Bicycle NSW membership is not applicable).  NB: You can pay by credit card (note extra bank fees) or via EFT.

Participants will have their own Freedom Wheels fundraising page set up for them at, so please invite family, friends and work colleagues to support you.

Ride Guide

Prior to event day you will be provided with a Rider Information document containing all relevant information about the Ride and BBQ.  It will be sent to the email address you have provided in your registration process.

Calling all volunteers!

If you, a family member or friend is able to volunteer on the day by taking on a role as a support vehicle driver, Ride Captain or even a 'MasterChef contestant' during our finish BBQ, please follow this link and submit as early as possible so we can allocate our team accordingly.
