Brisbane’s sizeable cycling community is being challenged to hop on their bikes and support the fifth annual Ride for Life Challenge on Sunday 12 October 2014.

Riders will also get the chance to rub shoulders with Tour de France great and Ride for Life ambassador, Robbie McEwen, who will be whizzing through the packs offering invaluable tips and tricks.

The Ride for Life Challenge this year will support Guide Dogs Queensland and the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Registrations are open and limited to 1000, visit for more information.

The $99 registration fee includes a charitable donation and a free 2014 Ride for Life jersey.

The ride includes full support – a police escort, a rest stop with refreshments, course Cycle Guides, first aid, mechanical support and support vehicles, a post-ride breakfast and an exclusive after-party at Byblos Bar + Restaurant.

Corporate groups, local teams and individuals are encouraged to register for the non- competitive social ride around Brisbane, and spectators are encouraged to attend to cheer on the riders.
