2019 Heart Foundation Gear Up Girl

Gear Up Girl was founded in 2008 and has expanded into a mass community bike ride from Sydney Olympic Park to Cronulla, showing women where the best bike paths and routes are so they can revisit them whenever they want!

Research shows that only 26% of riders in NSW are women (2016 Bicycle NSW Bike Riders Survey), a statistic the organization wants to drastically shake up through Gear Up Girl.

In 2019, the ride will attract 1,500 women who will enjoy either the 20km Beach Ride, 40km Classic Ride, 60km Coast Ride or the 80km Challenge Ride. Ride registration is open now; save $20 with early registration by January 15.
