Murray to Moyne

Where cycling, comradery and cancer crusading combine.

* Update 13 March 2020: The Cytotoxic Cyclist team isn't relaying together this year. If you still wish to do the ride and fundraise for the Foundation, you can head to the Murray to Moyne website and join another team

Raising much-needed funds towards philanthropic organisations like ours, the Murray to Moyne relay is an event like no other. In 2019 the Cytotoxic Cyclists team raised $28,850 for the Foundation. A 520km course, cycling in 30km sections in two relay teams. The Murray to Moyne is for experienced cyclists and casual weekend riders alike. The one thing everyone has in common is their dedication to doing this for childhood cancer.

Ride Friday night, Saturday until dusk or be a Sunday Strider. Ride in 30 km sections or complete the entire 520 km. There are options to suit all fitness levels.

In addition to riders, the team also require support crew and drivers. Registrations close 22 March 2020.
