The Peter Mac Ride has returned for 2017. We promise you’ll be measuring the experience in memories not just miles on a round trip from Melbourne riding the North West coast of Tasmania. It is going to be spectacular!
Starting from the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, you’ll ride on to the Spirit of Tasmania and set sail overnight to Devonport. Over 4 days and 300kms, you’ll experience the breathtaking beauty of the Tasmanian wilderness and it’s pristine coastline before the return voyage home.
Each rider will receive 2 sets of cycling kit to proudly wear on tour, plus an 8-week training program including 2 assessment rides. Join us!
100% of the funds raised will support two Immunology Research projects at the Peter MacCallum Centre in 2018. Along the route the team will also present three worthwhile local cancer projects with $10,000 to fund their cause.
You’ll meet fantastic people, share incredible memories... But above all, you’ll change lives.
To participate, each rider is required to:
Pay a $650 registration fee which covers:
Riders also need to commit to fundraising $3,000 via their profile on the Tour de Cure website.
Along the way, the team will visit a local primary schools to deliver our Be Fit, Be Healthy, Be Happy program. Together, we will raise awareness that 1 in 3 cancers are preventable and that by making simple, healthy lifestyle choices, they can reduce their cancer risk.
Number of participants is strictly limited so that each team member receives the full Tour experience.

Peter Mac Ride 2017
On the 30th of June 2015 I lost my fiancé to cancer (metastatic tumours is all I can be told with an unknown primary site). On the day we went into hospital it was unknown to us that he had cancer and 20 minutes after being diagnosed his heart stopped because of tumours that had grown in his arteries. His cancer was so aggressive that he only had it for approx 2 months so his opportunity to fight it was not there.
I bought my bike at the beginning of this year for both of them with the intention to take part in any ride that supports people in their fight against battle of cancer as it can turn your life upside down in a blink of an eye.
