Event Details

What is the Ride for Sick Kids Spin Challenge?

Between 8am-6pm, the rooftop at St Kilda Sea Baths will be full of charitable teams ready to challenge each other while raising vital funds for families with seriously ill and injured children.

To get involved and bring the fun to spin bike cycling, get a team of up to 10 together, come up with your riding plan and rally together to stay motivated for this endurance effort! Keep in mind there will only be one bike per team, so think about your riding plan carefully.

Once you have a full team, it’s time to accept the challenge and start training - the more prepared your legs are the better! You will also get your own team fundraising page that you can share with your networks to start bringing in those donations and making a real difference to the lives of some of Australia’s sickest children.

If you have any question regarding this event, please contact us here.
