Cycle for a cause

While the terrain might be challenging, every kilometre of The Hunger Ride will help Foodbank Victoria provide vulnerable children and their families with emergency food relief.


Today in Australia a child is more likely than an adult to live in poverty. One in five children arrive at school or go to bed hungry. We believe no child should go hungry, and The Hunger Ride aims to raise funds to feed vulnerable Victorian children and their families.

The event

Ever wanted to feel like a professional in the pro peloton? The Hunger Ride is an exclusive corporate cycling challenge through 164kms of Victoria’s most beautiful and difficult cycling terrain.

The ride departs Beechworth for a gentle climb through the Buckland Gap, cruises the Great Alpine Road to Porepunkah, takes on the gruelling 1723m climb up Mt Buffalo, winds down Yackandandah road, summits the punishing Mount Stanley and finishes back in Beechworth for a celebration dinner.

Team spots are strictly limited. Registration includes return coach transport with bikes from Melbourne, 2 nights shared accommodation in Beechworth, all meals and entertainment, Hunger Ride jersey with team branding, bike mechanics, support staff, first aid and safety vehicles, and personal rider insurance.

Riders will also be supported with group training rides and pre-event networking opportunities, personalised fundraising pages and fundraising tips and templates.
