The Great Brisbane Bike Ride, including the Coot-tha Challenge, is on Sunday 7 May.
The highlight of Bike Week, this Bicycle Queensland event offers challenging routes for bike riders of varying levels, crossing Brisbane from east to west, and from top to bottom.
This year’s event beneficiary is Diabetes Queensland, who Bicycle Queensland are excited to be working with given our common goals of building a healthier community through increased physical activity.
62 Queenslanders are diagnosed with all types of diabetes every single day. Funds raised from this event will help Diabetes Queensland to continue to provide much needed support, research and education about this condition.
Your support can:
• provide information to schools that helps keep kids living with type 1 diabetes safe.
• help to find some of the estimated 93,000 Queenslanders who don't know they're living with type 2 diabetes.
• support research initiatives to improve diagnosis and management of all types of diabetes.
