Cairns to Karumba Bike Ride


The Cairns to Karumba Bike Ride is a unique event that not only sees riders battle the bitumen or dirt across Cape York but also ensures that monies raised by the event support the ‘bush kids’ who live in the very locations we ride through.

Over the last 19 years this event has raised in excess of $1,135,000 that has been used to upgrade facilities and provide educational opportunities for students who live in some of the remotest parts of the state.


This year, for their 20th anniversary, they’re trying to raise in excess of $100,000 and with your help they’re are confident of achieving this goal.

Road riders have the chance to tackle the 780km that divides Cape York from Cairns to Karumba, while the Dirty Boys (mountain bike riders) take on the outback tracks, rivers and creeks and explore some of the most wonderful and diverse landscapes imaginable.
