The Hunger Ride 2019

Ever wanted to feel like a professional in the pro peloton? The Hunger Ride is an exclusive corporate cycling challenge through 172kms of Victoria’s most beautiful and difficult cycling terrain. While the terrain might be challenging, every kilometre will help raise much-needed funds to provide vulnerable children and their families with emergency food relief.
