You're one ride away from changing lives!

Ride for Compassion sees cyclists and support crew hit the pavement to help raise money for children living in poverty, with funds going towards our Highly Vulnerable Children Fund. The 2021 ride will be a one-month, 4,000km journey from Perth to Newcastle in September/October.

What is Coast to Coast 2021?

This 4,000km trek in 2021 will take cyclists from the beautiful beaches of Western Australia, across the barren inland of Australia, to the bustling east coast city of Newcastle. It’s a test of stamina, with a lasting impact on children living in poverty.

There will be 28 riding days and five rest days between Saturday 18 September and Wednesday 20 October, with an average distance of 150km to be ridden per day (longest distance 200km).

Cyclists are expected to undertake extensive training before the event, pay on-road costs, and raise funds for the work of Compassion.
