The Clarence Valley Ride For Youth is a 24 hour cycling event held at the Junction Hill Cycle Track, with the purpose of raising money for local mental health programs and also raising awareness throughout the community. The event was first held in 2015 and created by Skye Schatzman Sear, Michael Powell and Morgan Pilley. It's now held annually, as it continues to grow thanks to local businesses and people, who have been incredibly generous in their support.
Date: October or November.
Time: 12pm (Midday) - 12pm (Midday).
Location: Junction Hill Cycle Track, Back Lane, Junction Hill.
Cost: Will be announced soon.
Who can ride?
Everyone and anyone! It's not a race and not competitive. The event is held on a closed, purpose built cycle circuit that is wide, safe and designed so riders of all abilities can participate. The circuit is flat and short (about 700m) so you don't need any specific training.
What do you need?
A bike and a helmet. Although there will be a few bikes on offer to borrow.
How long do I have to ride for?
As long as you want! You can do a lap, an hour or 24 hours!
Why not challenge your friends and family or workmates to see if you can go the distance to support Clarence Valley youth?
All funds raised will go directly to local youth mental health initiatives
