About The Event

We believe riding our bikes (or walking) can change the world.

The Ride for Refuge is a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that helps charities raise money for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people around the world.

Since 2004, the RIDE has helped 350+ charities raise more than $10,000,000. The 2016 Ride for Refuge will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2016 and provides each participant the chance to:

  • Ride up to 50 km/30 miles
  • Walk 5 km/3 miles
  • Fundraise much-needed money for a participating RIDE charity partner. (You must be a member of a team to support a charity - the team captain chooses the charity.)
