The Gibb River Ride 2018
Thanks to our major partner Australia Post, the 7th annual Gibb River Postie Bike Ride is set for 2018!
RIDE 1 IS FULLY BOOKED. Register for Ride 2 (16 June – 24 June) here.
The Bright Blue Gibb River Postie Bike Ride is an adventure with a difference, with riders using Australia Post postie bikes to complete the trip.
The ride takes in epic scenery of the Kimberley, whilst negotiating creek crossings, unsealed roads and sleeping under the stars.
It costs $1,500 per rider and each rider must fundraise at least $5,000 for Bright Blue. Whilst this figure may sound daunting to some, the Bright Blue office are more than happy to help – contact them for ideas on firstname.lastname@example.org. The fundraising must be logged on our Everyday Hero page.
The $1,500 registration fee includes: a postie bike for the duration of the trip,your flight from Perth to Broome (1st leg) or Kununurra (2nd leg), your tent, all camping fees and all meals. You are required to have either a learners permit or a full motorcycle licence, your own sleeping bag and your own protective riding gear. NB: Tents are provided, therefore no swags will be allowed due to storage space.
The money raised from this event will go directly to our Bright Blue projects which include supporting brain cancer research, creating brighter futures for victims of burns and putting smiles on the faces of sick children in hospital.
This really is an amazing opportunity to experience the vastness and awe of wild Australia AND help children less fortunate – so what are you waiting for?
