The third annual 145Classic will now be held on Sunday 23rd April 2017.

Due to bad weather on the weekend of Sunday 19th March, the event team made the decision to postpone the event to ensure all riders, support crews and volunteers remained safe and enjoyed the event.

With the event now to be held on Sunday 23rd April, there is still time for you to register be part of this year's event, joining other riders and support crew from Sydney’s Centennial Park to Triple Care Farm at Robertson in NSW’s stunning Southern Highlands, with the aim of raising $125,000 to help youth in crisis.

145Classic: Ride for Youth offers riders a choice of 2 distances; a 120km endurance ride from Sydney’s Centennial Park to Kiama; or continuing to complete 145km, taking on the additional Jamberoo Mountain Challenge- a 25km ascent of Jamberoo Mountain Pass to Triple Care Farm, a route that offers some of the most stunning scenery the Southern Highlands has to offer.

All riders are fully supported by SAG vehicles, lead riders and catered rest stops along the route to ensure you remain hydrated and fuelled from start to finish. 

Want to join the 145Classic: Ride for Youth and be a part of the 2017 Team? There are a number of ways you can get involved: 

Register as an individual or register a Team. Teams of 15-20 will be allocated their own team car. For registration details, participant inclusion and for more information on Team Packages visit www.145Classic.com 

Register to Ride – register as an individual or register a Team. Teams of 15-20 will be allocated their own dedicated team car. For full registration details, participant inclusions and for more information on Team Packages visit www.145Classic.com

Become an event volunteer – not a rider? You can still be a part of the day. We will need a number of volunteers on Sunday 23rd April to help make sure our riders get from Centennial Park to Triple Care Farm in Robertson safely while having an amazing experience. Volunteer opportunities are available from 5.30am right thought until 5.30pm. There will be a wide range of roles and responsibilities on the day including rider registration, rest stop support, Jamberoo Mountain Challenge support crew, cheer squad and finish line volunteers.

Sponsor a Rider – not up for the ride and not able to volunteer on the day? You can still help us reach our $125,000 fundraising target. Why not sponsor a rider – every little bit counts and your support may just help save a young person’s life.

Donate – don’t know anyone riding but you would still like to support the event and help us reach our target? You can donate to the event by visiting www.145Classic.com and clicking ‘Donate Now’.
