Event Details

Mackay Peaks Charity Ride is a mass participation ride, not a race, to raise money for disadvantaged children in Australia and overseas, and to encourage more people to become active and involved in cycling. This year's event will take place in Mackay on Saturday the 6th of May, 2017.

There are five rides to choose from, including a NO PEAKS RIDE for beginners which is 20km (no peaks - just small rolling hills) a 25km, 40km, 65km and 100km. Magpies Sporting Club will serve as the start and end point of the ride and also host the post ride event. Food and coffee will be available at this location, perfect for your friends and family to greet you when you cross the line.
