We’re hoping to raise $3.8 million which will directly help people living with multiple sclerosis – and your support will greatly assist us in reaching our goal.

Our ambassador – Commonwealth Games Gold medallist Ben Kersten said this about the event –

“I’ve ridden all over the world and I’d have to say that the MS Gong Ride course is one of the most – if not the most – spectacular courses in the world. Being a Wollongong boy, the MS Sydney to the Gong Ride is a big part of my past and I’ve taken part around a dozen times.
It holds a lot of fond memories for me from such a young age and it’s on my home turf. I can remember riding up to Sydney with a friend when we were around 14 and then we’d do the MS Gong Ride back home. Riding in such a big energetic group is like catching a wave. We just surfed it from Sydney back home”.

Join 10,000 riders for a day to remember with friends, family and team mates.
Enjoy the fun, unity, safety and scenery of this well-loved ride.

Please spread the word and share this opportunity with your members.
Your support and involvement will make a huge difference in the lives of people living with multiple sclerosis.
