2021 will be your last opportunity to participate in what has been a fantastic success and a great credit to Roy Knudsen the initiator of the Ride to Conference.  The Committee have decided that it is time to admit that the longer it runs – the older we get!  SO, quit whilst you’re ahead.

It has been a fantastic success by the many people who have ridden and provided the necessary support services for the riders. Collectively they have raised well in excess of $1million. The principal beneficiaries have been Life Education, ($350,000) and Rotary Centenary House, ($180,000) with Rotary Health, Disaster Aid Australia, Interplast, End Trachoma, and a few other worthy beneficiaries also benefitting through the years.

The organising committee have chosen to conduct this last ride at a time independent of our District Conference. The route will be in and around parts of our District from March 20th through to the 27th  as a way of providing Clubs an opportunity to show their support to the riders, including a couple who have done every ride and several who have completed a dozen or more.

To mark the occasion the Committee have commissioned production of a special Rotary ride shirt in Rotary colours. Each participant will receive one as part of their registration for the event. We hope to see some past riders make a special effort to join us for this Ride, including those who have joined the E bike fraternity.

The shirt is such a good generic design that we think it would be a wardrobe item for any Rotarian who enjoys riding. They can promote Rotary whilst enjoying the safety offered by the highly visible colour.

We know there are many Rotarians who enjoy riding in some form or other.  Here is an opportunity to acquire a keenly priced, quality ride shirt that will give you years of service and advertise that Rotarians are active, fit and energetic members of the community.

If you would like to add one to your collection or acquire some for your Club’s keen riders then all you need to do is drop an expression of interest email to with an indication of your requirements.

You will be provided with an order form during October along with a size chart so we can obtain details of numbers and sizes you require to include with our order.

This Rotary Ride shirt has no additional print to tie it to a particular event, District or Club.  It would be usable by riders from other Rotary Districts and we would love to share the opportunity with them as well.  

This is a once off $75 opportunity.    Don’t miss it!
