Why we ride
Co founders Nick, Pierre and James believe in using their passion for cycling for a good cause. And their chosen cause is close to their hearts. With first-hand experience of dementia in the family, they’ve made it their mission to raise awareness and fight this debilitating disease. In 2016 they launched Bondi2Berry; a charity bike ride that would help them support the work of Dementia Australia in finding a cure.
With a little help from former PM, Tony Abbott, and Bondi Rescue’s Andrew ‘Reidy’ Reid, 40 cyclists completed the 155km journey from the world-famous Bondi Beach to the historic town of Berry. With support from local riding groups and their communities, that number has now grown. And in 2021, we saw an impressive fleet of 140 cyclists taking on the infamous coastal route and raising funds for dementia.
To date, Bondi2Bery has organised a whole host of events that increase awareness of dementia, raise money to fund dementia-specific research projects and educate the community about the disease. We have raised over $880,000 dollars and our goal is to hit a $1 million fundraising target by the end of 2023.

We couldn’t do it without the support of these companies and brands.
We’re not just hitting the road, but the headlines too. Check out some of the coverage we’ve been lucky enough to receive and how it’s helped not only raise the profile of the Bondi2Berry charity ride, but more importantly, raise awareness of dementia and the funds that will help find a cure.
