Back by popular demand
After the success of our very first Peter Mac Ride in 2016, we're setting off for another incredible ride to raise vital funds for pioneering cancer research at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
When: 26 – 30 November 2017
Where: Melbourne – Tasmania – Melbourne
You’ll meet fantastic people, share incredible memories, but above all, you’ll change lives for those touched by cancer.
Visiting the Apple Isle
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 back to Melbourne.
You’ll be measuring the experience in life-changing memories not just miles!

The bottom line
On tour, we hear more riders groaning about sore butts than sore muscles. So the bottom line – pardon the pun – is ride more, and your butt will thank you later!
While cycling is a great sport and lots of fun, cycling on public roads is a potentially dangerous activity which carries risks. We want you to ride safe and enjoy riding in a bunch.
We are so grateful to our sponsors for their generosity and support of The Peter Mac Ride 2017.

A close-knit team
Last year, a very special group of people joined us for the inaugural Peter Mac Ride. It was a magical tour that brought people from all walks of life together.
