About the course

Just as in 2022, the course is both picturesque and challenging. The early stages are flattish but winds are common and can make for a tough day out. 

As the course progresses from Sunbury to Queenscliff, we take in some of Australia's most beautiful coastline along the stunning Great Ocean Road.

Enjoy the spectacular views as you ride knowing you're helping make wishes come true for sick kids.


Custom cycling kit

Your Bay's Ride For Wishes 2023 entry fee includes a custom cycle kit with your very own Ride For Wishes jersey and bib shorts.

What does an average day look like?

Ride For Wishes - In Memory of Bailer Fuller - is a challenging 6 days in the saddle, covering between 116km to190km per day. But just like a pro, all you'll need to think about is you and your bike. The Ride For Wishes Crew will take care of where you sleep, where you eat and where you need to be on and off the bike. We’ve got your back.

Wake up

Mornings on the ride follow a relaxed pattern. Once you are up and showered, you will find any laundry you need in a bag at your door. Leave your bags packed at your door for us to take to the team cars and wander down to breakfast where a spread appropriate for a long day in the saddle awaits. 

Fuel up

Fuelled up and ready, we will have a quick briefing on the highlights and highpoints of the day ahead and head outside. Your bikes will have been serviced and await you by the team cars. We aim to be on the road at 9am. We will have a stop or three along the way depending on the day’s course and weather to fuel up and regroup. There is even a rumour that you will get the best lemon slice in Australia to keep you going!

Feet up

At day's end we’ll roll into our overnight stop. Leave your bike with the mechanic, grab some food and drink from the support crew to top up if you need it and wander to your room where your bag awaits. Take the chance for a shower and rest before we reconvene. Dinner each night will be at or close to our accommodation and we will celebrate the highlights of the day.

And then we'll do it all over again the next day.
