JOIN US ON THE CYCLING TOUR OF A LIFETIME!
The Leukaemia Foundation has partnered with Tour de Cure to host Life Ride, a new 380km multi-stage visual feast in Western Australia.
Barrelling through the Margaret River region over three days, Life Ride is perfect for roadies, more casual club riders or those new to the sport.
This special event isn’t about winners and watts; we’ll ride as a group to the finish, supporting each other towards our shared goal of helping more Aussies beat their blood cancer. Is there a better feeling of accomplishment, achievement and comradeship?
Surround yourself with friends and colleagues, new and old, and experience the thrill of riding wheel-to-wheel; climbing, drafting and descending together through stunning south west WA.
It's as simple as...
