The Hunger Ride March 2022

Ever wanted to feel like a professional in the pro peloton? The Hunger Ride is an exclusive corporate cycling challenge through 185kms 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.

Date: 18 - 20 March, 2022

The Hunger Ride provides wonderful networking opportunities and the chance for participants to enjoy a weekend full of riding fun – with access to well-known personalities such as Tour de France Green Jersey winner Baden Cooke and voice of cycling Matt Keenan.
