We roll out at 7:30am from from Cnr Park & Pitt Streets, Riverstone.  
Most of us 'cut our cycling teeth' in charity rides where volunteers directed us along the route and warned us of dangers.  Cycling is about giving as well as taking.  R2R is an opportunity to give somethen' back, because it takes a lot of commitment from a dedicated communal team to deliver an annual charity ride.

  • Entry fees for all routes include a sit-down meal after the ride.  Lucky door & fundraising prizes are on offer, and there will be other raffles held over lunch with some fantastic prizes.  BankTeller won two valuable prizes last year with $10 of tickets.  CricketTragic won one good prize.

  • All riders should aim to be at the Riverstone start point by 7:15am.  The route is open between 7:30am & 12.30pm, and any riders doing the longer routes who have not arrived at certain check points by cut-off times will be re-directed to shorter routes.  When selecting a distance to ride, please keep in mind these time constraints.  For example, to do the 100km route in the allotted time, you will need to maintain an average speed of around 23 km/h.
  • Most of the ride is on bitumen road.  There is one short section of good-quality unsealed road used for the 60, 80 & 100km (used twice) routes. There are a few kms of shared path on most routes.
