Sunday 29th November 2020

starting at Royal Park Launceston

Sally’s Ride started in 2002 when Sally Fletcher rode 1400km solo around Tasmania raising funds for mental health in Tasmania. In 2009, in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Central Launceston, the event was expanded to create The Tamar Valley Cycle Challenge.

Funds raised from the Cycle Challenge are distributed to local charities who proactively assist mental health causes and the Rotary Club of Central Launceston.

All rides Start & Finish at Royal Park via Park Street, Launceston.

Four rides of differing challenges are available.

The rides will start at varying times and due to COVID requirements the goal will be to stagger start and finish times to ensure social distancing. Please note the special Terms and Conditions (that also relate to a COVID safe event) here: Terms and Conditions to enter the rides.

Teams Challenge

Gather your team! The team challenge is for cumulative team kilometres from any of the main rides. Individuals registering in a team go in the running for prizes too! Suitable for sporting groups, corporate teams or friends and family.
