Sponsors wanted for charity bike ride

Last year’s Century Challenge Bike Ride attracted 450 riders

The annual Century Challenge Charity Bike Ride will take place in May 2022 and the committee organising the ride is looking for businesses to sponsor the event.

The ride, which is scheduled for May 15, will raise money to support Lifeline and Coast Shelter.

Century Challenge Co-Chairman, John Spath, said funds raised from the ride would help Lifeline’s face-to-face counselling services and the many services that Coast Shelter provides for the community.

“This year we raised $16,000 and next year we’re hoping to double that amount,” Spath said.

“This year, due to COVID, we only had about 450 riders but I’m hoping we can get 600 to 700 next year.”

The Century Challenge Bike Ride was established in 2000 and is organised by Rotary Clubs across the Coast.

For 2022, North Gosford Rotary Club is coordinating the ride which will have a 50km option, as well as a 100km ride that starts and finishes at Woodbury Park in Wyong, and a new 32km gravel track through the Watagans.

“The short ride takes around two hours and the long one takes around four,” Spath said.

“We’re currently looking for sponsors who want to promote their business and support some great organisations.

“After the ride, there will be a fun fair where businesses who sponsor the ride are welcome to set up a stall and promote their business.

“We’ve reached out to the Wyong Chamber of Commerce and Bendigo Bank.”
