Charity Ride Hope2Day, presented by SMEC
The Cycling Development Foundation (CDF), alongside the Veris Racing team are pleased to host its inaugural charity ride.
It is our intention to raise $20,000 to fund a community outreach program, Project ReCycle by charity Hope2Day, which will be staffed and delivered by athlete recipients of the CDF via the nationally registered cycle racing team Veris Racing.
What is Hope2Day’s Project ReCycle?
The purpose of this event is to raise funds for Hope2Day in an effort to host a ‘Project ReCycle’ event in Laverton, Western Australia.
“Project ReCycle is an 8-10 session program where young people – with the support of a mentor – learn the skills required to rebuild a bike in small groups. It’s more than learning skills; it’s about making strong foundations for life. Stripping down and rebuilding a bike teaches mechanical proficiency, and enables young people to work through challenges. By working in small groups, students have opportunities to build connections and positive relations with mentors that will have an effect on other aspects of their lives. Participants also rebuild a bike for a child or young person in another remote or neighbouring community – therefore having a direct impact on that child’s and family’s wellbeing. This aspect is again performed in partners or small groups within the program. Two key indicators are around Social Impact and Engagement.”

About the ride
The ride is broken into different speed groups, based on ability. The aim of the ride is to complete the route within a desired average speed range. Through the ride you will be assisted and paced by members of the Veris Racing team. The event is not timed, but utilises bike computer devices to guide the riders in groups, with the average speed NOT including time not moving.
Start locations and times:
6am (25-26km/hr group)
630am (27-28km/hr group)
7am (30km/hr group)
Finish: Rubra on Swan, 11am (approximate)
Distance: 120km 1500m climbing
The aim of the ride is to start and finish as a group at a designated group speed: 24-25km/hr, 27-28km/hr, or 30km/hr. Average speed is timed through the bike computer, so only moving time is recorded, not elapsed time. The ride is not a race and all road rules must be adhered to.
The ride will start and finish from Rubra on Swan, near the bell tower on the east side of Elizabeth Quay. Refreshments will be made available at the start and finish of the ride event.
The ride will be supported by a vehicle, experienced riders and accredited coaches. The ride will be a moderate pace, but there will be an expectation of a level of fitness required to maintain a group average speed for the 120km distance. Please indicate fitness levels and riding history in the registration form.
The ride is for men and women and is open to all members of the public but will be limited to 200 registrations.
