Sally’s Ride – Tamar Valley Cycle Challenge is a 1 day charity ride through the beautiful Tamar Valley, with rides to suit cyclists of all ages and ability.
This ride is an initiative to assist in the prevention of youth suicide in Tasmania, by increasing awareness of the issue and to promote life and health. 100% of all entry fees are given to youth suicide programmes.
Sally’s Ride is the true local ride, and was inspired by Sally Fletcher, who had success on the track and road racing at National and world masters level.
You’ll find 5 rides on offer, ranging from family friendly to challenging:
- 10km Family Ride – targets the whole family on an off-street route.
- 45km Challenge – targets the more experienced cyclist who is looking for an increase in challenge or the experienced rider who wants a shorter faster ride.
- 70km Challenge – targets the more experienced rider who seeks an increased challenge coupled with a scenic cycling environment
- 100km Challenge – targets the experienced rider looking for an extended challenge.
- 160km Challenge – targets the serious rider who loves a decent challenge.
Starting in Launceston and travelling through the Tamar Valley, you’ll get the chance to test your legs, with an undulating course on the 100km and 160km (approx 1600m of elevation gained). Riding along the country roads are a fantastic taste of the region of the local forests and a scenic river ride.
If you find yourself in Tassie, then make this a great family orientated ride!
