Why are we riding?
We are riding to raise awareness of dementia. Organisers Nick and Pierre have first hand experience with the disease. Their personal experiences, as well as those of many of their close friends, prompted the guys to use their passion for cycling to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for the terrible disease.
Dementia has become the leading cause of death among Australian women, and the third leading cause of Australian men (ABS 2017). There is no cure.
There are more than 472,000 Australians currently living with dementia. This is on track to reach 589,807 by 2028. Without a major breakthrough in research, it is expected to soar to over 1 million Australians by 2058.
The goal for 2021 is to raise $120,000 for Dementia Australia. All funds raised by the ride will go towards researching a cure and associated research projects.
About the ride
Bondi2Berry is a challenging, yet beautiful ride – 155km in distance, and elevation of 1,700m.
Six groups of 20 riders starting from the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club, riding out of the Eastern Suburbs and travelling through parts of the Royal National Park to Wollongong, Kiama and finishing in Berry on the NSW south coast.
The ride is an open road event, adhering to normal road rules and is sanctioned by Cycling NSW. Please note that only road bikes are able to be utilised (no TT / triathlon or mountain bikes). There will be support vehicles for each of the groups, as well as first aid and bike mechanics on the course.
What do I get as a rider?
All riders will receive a unique Bondi2Berry event jersey and an event pack with other great products. Bike mechanics and nutrition on course, and a free BBQ at the finish line in Berry.
