The Ride The Range Corporate Challenge

Rotary Ride the Range is a community event making a difference locally on the Darling Downs, State wide and internationally.
Several routes have been mapped to give riders of all levels the opportunity to “Take on a Real Challenge” by riding Australia’s largest Mountain range – The Great Dividing Range.
All cyclists will start and finish at the same point. Riders meander down through the picturesque Lockyer Valley and return to Toowoomba’s iconic Picnic Point via some of the steepest terrain available to cyclists. For those riders daunted by the climb, there is an option for the rider to ride down the range to Helidon and return via air conditioned coach with their bike! (the “Nifty 50”)

How Your Workplace or Business Can Join the Corporate Challenge:

Teams can be made up of all levels of cyclist. Our aim is to create strong competition and industry rivalry but also provide a fun, accessible ride. The Challenge is based on numbers. The more riders you have on your team the more competitive you will be.
Points are allocated based on the overall kilometers you complete as a team. With several options catering for all level of rider, forming a team from your workplace should be simple.
Corporate Challenge Teams will compete for the Rotary Ride the Range Perpetual Trophy. This trophy will reside for the year at the winning team’s office. The winning team is invited back the following year to defend their title and retain all the bragging rights that go along with it.
