Ride for Country Kids

Find out more

The ride of a lifetime.

Each year, we head out on a three-day ride across regional NSW to help raise awareness and vital funds to give country kids the developmental and mental health services they need, but otherwise cannot access.

On the 10th anniversary of the ride, we are going deeper into the heartland of the communities that Royal Far West serves cycling through scenic forests, farmlands and coast.

Join us in 2024 and ride to transform the lives of Australia’s country kids!

Why we ride

Country communities have been affected by countless natural disasters over the last few years.

The impact of these disasters, coupled with the existing disadvantage of distance and availability of services, has seen the number of country kids in need of developmental and mental health services drastically increase.

Each Ride takes us into the country communities we serve, giving our riders the opportunity to hear stories, take in the views and experience a life away from the city.

Cycling is in my veins, and it’s great to be supporting Royal Far West to help kids in rural and remote areas, particularly when I get to saddle up and join a group of likeminded people, all of whom are keen to push themselves to support country kids.
