Our annual 145Classic: Ride for Youth is open for registrations! This event is a perfect opportunity to push your fitness and enjoy a rewarding ride whilst also helping young people with substance abuse and mental health issues to turn their lives around.
The 145Classic has left the big smoke and headed south to some of Australia’s prime riding country.
When? Sunday 8th of April 2018.
2018 will see the introduction of a loop course through the Southern Highlands with a start and finish at Glebe Park, Bowral - opposite the Sir Bradman Oval.
There are still two distances on offer and, like in previous years, the longer distance includes the iconic Jamberoo climb to Triple Care Farm.
Triple Care Farm is a youth drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that helps young people aged 16-24 to recover from substance abuse and mental health issues. David Martin Place is on the same property, recently opening in June 2017. This is a youth drug and alcohol detox facility that helps young people in the same age bracket to withdraw from substances in a safe, youth specific environment.
Riders will enjoy a morning breakfast BBQ at Bowral and also a BBQ at the finish line to share with family and friends.
This is a fully supported ride. This means that the ride will be completed in groups of between 12-20 riders. Each group will be pre-determined and graded according to ability. Each group will be supported by a SAG (Spares and Gear) vehicle.
Registration fee: $150 per person
Fundraising target: $500 per person
For those that would like to participate as a team, they can choose their own fundraising target based on numbers, with the principle being that each person in the team raises $500.
The overall fundraising target for 145Classic 2018 is to raise $100k for youth in crisis. Funds raised will help young people break free from the early stages of addiction at new youth detox facility, David Martin Place.
