Have a question?
Please see our most frequently asked questions by category below.
How do I fundraise?
Simply register to become a member with Tour de Cure and we'll tell you all you need to know to start fundraising. You don't have to come on a tour to raise funds for us. Fundraising is lots of fun and don't worry, we're here to help you.
How do I make a donation?
You can donate to an individual rider, support crew member or make a donation to Tour de Cure through our donations page and you'll be helping to fund world-class cancer projects. Any problems/queries, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Can I start a collection of funds in memory of a loved one?
Yes. Please get in touch with Tour de Cure and we'll supply you with collection materials for the service and make the process as easy as possible for you.
Where will the funds I donate go?
Do I need to ride a bike to get involved with Tour de Cure?
No – everyone can play a part in the fight to beat cancer. While we're passionate about cycling, you can cover ground to cure cancer in so many different ways: walking, swimming, dancing! Join up for our support crew, fundraise or volunteer with us. We'd love you to join the TDC family.
What do I need to do to come on tour?
We need riders, stage riders, support crew and service members to make each tour a success. Team members can apply for one or more tours provided they meet the following criteria.
To come on tour all team members must:
- Become a Tour de Cure member online and submit an application
- Commit to achieving their respective fundraising targets
- Pay their personal donation (included as part of fundraising target).
- Pay a visit to the Doctor for a health assessment and return signed medical forms to Tour de Cure.
- Read and agree to Tour de Cure waiver online
- Provide their own transport to and from Tour
Each tour is different and may involve additional training and/or tasks.
What can I expect on a typical day on tour?
Great food and an early start
After breakfast there will be a team briefing from the Tour Co-ordinator before setting off. Each day's ride is under 200kms, mixed in with rest stops, school presentations and visits to some of our corporate partners' stores, offices or locations.
Raising awareness about cancer prevention
A big part of each tour is sharing our cancer awareness message with the communities we meet along the way. We visit local primary schools each day to share our Be Fit, Be Healthy, Be Happy program with the kids and the wider school community.
Sharing your experiences
After a cool down at the end of the day, completion of team chores (ie. car washing, laundry) and enjoying some down time, the entire team attends a community dinner at our overnight location.
Giving back to the local community
At our community dinners we enjoy local hospitality and have the privilege of donating a $10,000 cheque to a local cancer project each night. We are lucky enough to hear first-hand from the recipients about the difference these funds will make to their community.
Our Category Jersey award ceremony
In Tour de France style, we present exemplary riders and support crew with TDC category jerseys to recognise their hard work and celebrate their great attitude.

Bunking down with the team
Dinner finishes at approximately 8.30pm so there is plenty of time for rest and relaxation. You will be booked into shared accommodation with 1-3 other team mates. Rooms are allocated by gender.
All accommodation and meals - other than dinner drinks - from arrival the day before tour to the finale will be provided to you at no additional cost.
Can my family and friends join me on Tour?
Your family and friends can share the experience by:
Attending any of our community dinners
Tickets available for purchase through our events calendar
Cheering your ride along the way
Detailed route maps are made available online outlining cheering spots closer to the event.
Please note: Guests need to make their own accommodation arrangements. They may book into the same accommodation as Tour de Cure once the team itinerary is released, subject to room availability.
You may stay with your guests in their room, however if they are following you for the entire tour, we encourage you to share a room with fellow team members. It's a great way to bond, make lifelong friendships and really get the most of the tour experience.
Remember, places are limited so book early to avoid missing out.
For more information about getting involved with Tours see our Roles on Tour page.
