Take the Challenge. Enjoy the Ride.

For Weekend Warriors, Cycling Enthusiasts and Corporate Teams, Ride for Life has a speed for everyone

Northshore Riverside Park, Hamilton

We are excited to bring the Ride For Life Challenge to Brisbane again in 2018. On Sunday 28 October the Brisbane BMW & Westside BMW Ride For Life Challenge will tour around an 80km route through Brisbane City and out to Cleveland before returning to the start venue.

We’ll once again be starting and finishing at Northshore Riverside Park, Hamilton.

Event Timing / Team Details

Event Time:
5.00am – 11.00am. Your start time will be communicated 2 weeks out from the event date.

Note: riders will be prompted to select a speed group upon entering into this event and will be allocated to their cycle pack at kit collection.

Format:
This fully supported ride will include cycle pack police escorts, course cycle guides, a rest stop with refreshments, first aid, mechanical support and support vehicles. The format of this ride is unique, and riders in each pack will stay together, rather than ride from A to B on their own. For this reason, it is important that your speed grouping is accurately selected upon booking.

Teams: 
Corporate groups, cycling/tri teams and individuals are encouraged to register. This is a social event, but due to the cycle pack format of this event and level of difficulty of the set course, this event is not suitable for young children, mountain bikes, or those whom have never ridden on the road before.

How much? And how?

Early bird entry of $99 closes at midnight Friday 10 August, 2017 (includes jersey size guarantee!).

Standard entry of $109 from Saturday 11 August, 2017.

Registration Pack:
Includes official event jersey valued at $95, bike number, light brunch, and sponsor giveaways/offers.

Pack Postage:
This year we are offering a pack postage option for $13.80. This is available for registrations received by 30 September, 2018. If you’d like to take up this option please add postage to your registration when asked. Packs will be posted out within the first two weeks of October. 

Pack Collection:

Individuals

This category is for those weekend warriors, cycling enthusiasts and everyday commuters. Your start time will depend on which speed you enter into, so be sure to ask your friends which speed they are entering so that you can be placed in the same wave. Start times will be published in the week prior to the event once we have all the entries secured.

Corporate Teams

If you’d like to take part in this event as a team of colleagues, mates or family members – this is the category for you.

what people say

Fantastic event, so well organised, had a ball and will definitely be riding next year. Hats off to all of the organisers and the QLD Police who did a stellar job.
ALEX PREZ
Today was my first time in participating in the Ride for Life Challenge. I have to say it has been one of the best organised rides that I have participated in, from the overall organisation, police escort (brilliant), reply to emails and the food at the end – awesome. Thank you to everyone who made this event so worthwhile!!
