Ride for a reason with Cancer Council
Ride for a reason is your chance to make your ride count—because every dollar you raise funds Cancer Council’s research, prevention and support programs.
Whether it’s for a mate who’s just been diagnosed, a family member you’ve lost, or to contribute to a better future for your kids—every one of us has a reason to push for better. Make a difference by simply riding your bike, and be rewarded for your efforts!
How it works
Take part in the Westpac Challenge Tour ahead of the pros, or set your own Distance Challenge.
The Westpac Challenge Tour lets your take to the track literally hours before the pros on 24 January 2020. You can choose from one of four start locations to match your fitness and challenge-level. You're provided with an exclusive jersey, a timing chip, as well as mechanical and medical support along your tour.
With the January Distance Challenge, ride your nominated distance, time and terrain any time throughout January. You can either ride as part of a team or ride it solo. You can record your rides on Strava to track your progress and show others how close you are to achieving your goal. Hit your target and you'll earn your registration fee back.
There are plenty more perks in addition to raising money for a great cause. There are prizes up for grabs along the way and incentives, such as a high-quality Santini cycling kit. Meet like-minded people and take the lead from former Olympian and Santos Tour Down Under winner Pat Jonker.

Find your flock
Best of all, when you Ride for a reason during the Santos Tour Down Under, you’ll be welcomed into the tight-knit community of riders who all share one thing in common: a determination to make a difference.
Led by former Olympian and Santos Tour Down Under winner Pat Jonker, the team gets together for monthly rides—but you don’t have to be an athlete to join in. Through the Ride for a reason online community, you can plan to meet up, share tips, and support each other as your fundraise in the lead-up to January 2020.
With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real. Make your ride count this Santos Tour Down Under and register to Ride for a reason.
