First responders have protected our communities from bushfires and many other disasters. This November, there’s a new way to support them and their families.
Cycle a virtual circumnavigation of Tasmania to raise much-needed funds to support the people who keep our communities safe.
This event is free of charge for first responder families.
The event is thanks to a new partnership between Fortem Australia, Maglia Nera Tours and GoCycle.
The event, which was originally planned to be held in Tasmania, has become a virtual event due to COVID-19 restrictions.
There are two options for cycling participants between 7 November and 29 November 2020:
- A virtual ride near your home, until you have accumulated enough kilometres to have done a Full Map (1,040km), the West Map (585km), or the East Map (455km).
- Tasmanian participants may choose to download a map and take on the circumnavigation challenge (or part of it) in the Apple Isle itself.
Our first responder families need support as they head into what will inevitably be a challenging summer of bushfire risk and pandemic regulations. Money raised through the cycling event will help them access wellbeing activities and psychological support.
