Why

Since the first Freeway Bike Hike in 2004, this event has been raising money for the Asthma Foundation WA. As the foundations' largest fundraising event, the Freeway Bike Hike has raised over $973,767 so far. The aim for 2015 is to reach $1million marker, so just a further $175,000 to go.

Participants are encouraged to register to ride and start fundraising. You can set up a fundraising page here. For those not wishing to fundraise, you can simply make a donation when you register for the event. If you donate or fundraise $200 or more, then your ride is free (you'll get your fee refunded after the event).
