28 March 2020 Stromlo Forest Park

Event Description

This will be the very first Ride for Refugees in Canberra! Why not be a part of history in the making!

You can ride individually or gather a team of family and friends and raise funds that will help bring hope to refugees locally in Australia and around the world.  Grab your bike – and your helmet! and come along for a great day out.  You can cycle 25, 50, 75 or 100kms.  Whatever the distance, it’s all about making a difference in the lives of our refugees friends through the funds you raise.

Stephen Hodge Criterium Cycling Circuit

Stromlo Forest Park, Opperman Ave, Stromlo

There is plenty of parking onsite, please follow the directions of our friendly volunteers.
Check-in opens at 8am at the Registration Tent.
The official start will be at 9am (with all riders to be off the course by 3pm)

The RIDE Route

The Stephen Hodge Criterium Cycling Circuit is 1.2km. As you ride past the start/finish line you will be greeted with bells (akin to Tour de France) and lots of cheering and support!
To complete your distance, do the necessary laps in one hit – or take it a bit easier and stop for a rest or two between laps.

The Kids RIDE Track is being held in the grounds of the Stromlo Forest Park and will be marked out with markers/safety cones. Parents must be responsible for their children at all times.

Parents can set up a blanket on the grassed area and easily watch the kids as they pedal, scoot, have a jump on the castle or get their face painted.


Registered riders can help themselves to snacks, drinks and lunch at the catering tent as part of their registration pack. Guests and supporters can grab something to eat and pop a $2 donation in the bucket.

Lunch will commence at 12:00pm. It will be held at the Start/Finish, and will be a great chance to thank everyone for participating and to celebrate the day. Coffee and tea will be available all day in the same place.
