2 DAYS. OVER 200 KILOMETRES. 1 EPIC RIDE.
Riding throughout Western Australia's scenic countryside in two days. Sure, it sounds like a lot – and it’s meant to be. But make no mistake, this event isn’t just for athletes or cycling enthusiasts.
The MACA Ride to Conquer Cancer® benefiting Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause. Woodside's partnership with the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research to establish a Fellowship in Cancer Research was launched in late 2014. Woodside's support of cancer research has been inspired by the dedication and commitment of our employees and their passion to make a difference.
All you need is motivation, a bike and a helmet. The money you raise for The Ride will benefit Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, Western Australia’s premier adult medical research institute. In 2016, Team Woodside reached the $1 million mark in its fundraising efforts after four years of participating in the ride.
Your 2-day cycling adventure begins as you gather with fellow Riders for an inspiring Opening Ceremony, where we’ll remember those lost to cancer and honour those continuing the fight.
Lining the route every 25-30 kilometres, you’ll find fully stocked Pit Stops with all the snacks and hydration you’ll need to keep going. Day One culminates with arrival at Camp, where you can enjoy a cold beer, a hot shower, and a well-deserved massage before a fun evening of entertainment and socialising.
With an overnight campout in the Mandurah area, the dynamic contrast between wildflower-specked green pastures and the rugged coast of the Indian Ocean will provide the perfect backdrop for your epic journey. You may even spot a dolphin cheering you on!
After camping overnight under the stars, Day Two will lead you further through the inspiring landscape, as you make your way towards the Finish Line – a high energy celebration of your epic Ride and the amazing impact you’ve made in the quest to conquer cancer.
