What is Cycle 1000?

The Cycle 1000 is a charity bike ride from Ballina to Dandaloo Hotel in Kanahooka – 1000 kilometres, with the aim to raise much needed funds for the i98fm Illawarra Convoy then distributed to the Illawarra Community Foundation to disburse funds to ill and sick children and families in the Illawarra. In 2019, we have introduced the Cycle 300, now offering the option to participate in the 2 day event riding 300 kms giving riders more option.
