Mount Gambier to Melbourne 2015

You are invited to join the Greenham family’s annual 500km Mount Gambier to Melbourne bike ride fundraiser!

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has again granted official approval, meaning for the 8th year the Greenham family, with friends and other cyclists, will be pedalling 500km over the 4 days in support of MSF.

Held on the March Labour Day long weekend (6-9 March), we really encourage anyone to join in – whether it’s for 20kms, a day, or a few days! The itinerary is:

  • Friday 6 March – Depart Mount Gambier 5pm to Dartmoor 7pm, 50km
  • Saturday 7 March – Depart Dartmoor 8am via Port Fairy to Warrnambool 4pm, 150km (a break at Port Fairy to watch the Folk Festival!)
  • Sunday 8 March – Depart Warrnambool 8 am via Camperdown to Inverleigh 5pm, 160km
  • Monday 09 March – Depart Inverleigh 9am to Melbourne 2pm, 90km

MSF is an international, emergency medical-aid organisation. Every year our respect for their crucial work grows, so please read about them further and consider donating. The inspiration for these rides comes from the ethos that MSF display in providing much-needed aid to those most desperate, regardless of race, religion, creed or status.

You can read about last year’s ride here, with our largest group yet, or look through the rest of the website, which has stories and photos from past rides, including last year in Tasmania and two in Europe. There is also a link on the right to our ‘everydayhero’ fundraising page.

This ride is further preparation for the upcoming European ride in April-June, from Lisbon, Portugal to Lyon, France. Jordy, youngest of the three children, is finalising details on what is his gap-year adventure, raising awareness for MSF. Stay tuned for more details to come.

Contact details are listed on the right; don’t be shy!

    Wow!! What a great way to fundraiser for MSF. I can’t join you this year as I have a son turning 18 on Sunday, March 8th. But I would certainly be interested in 2016 if it runs again. All the best, and safe travels. Brett.
