​Cairns to Karumba Bike Ride

The Cairns to Karumba Bike Ride is a unique event that not only sees riders battle the bitumen or dirt across Cape York but also ensures that monies raised by the event support the ‘bush kids’ who live in the very locations we ride through. Over the last 20 years this event has raised in excess of $1,135,000 that has been used to upgrade facilities and provide educational opportunities for students who live in some of the remotest parts of the state. C’mon, it’s time to do something you’ll never forget – it’s time for the Cairns to Karumba Bike Ride!

How can I be involved?

Here are just a few options available to Cairns SDE families who are keen to support Cairns SDE’s one and only fundraising event of the year.

  • Register to ride.

  • Volunteer.
  • Donate, collect or seek prizes to be used at the event.
