Ride Daylesford is a recreational bike ride for everyone, raising funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).

Starting in Daylesford on Saturday 28th October 2017, over 2,000 cyclists are expected to take part in this inaugural event through the beautiful countryside of Hepburn, Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander Shires. The ride will pass through the towns of Kyneton, Malmsbury, Elphinston, Faraday, Taradale, Harcourt, Walmer, Maldon, Newstead, Franklinford, and Hepburn Springs before returning to Daylesford.

Funds raised will be supporting the BCNA to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs. Please visit to find out more.

Daylesford, situated in the heart of the 'Spa Country', is located in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, approximately 115 kilometres north-west of Melbourne. Along with Hepburn Springs, it is well known for its natural spring mineral spas. The Daylesford wine region is also fast becoming known as Australia's best Pinot growing region.
