Online registrations have opened for one of southeast Queensland’s favourite charity bike rides, the St Andrew’s Private Hospital Ipswich100 on Sunday 26 March 2023.
The ride is a Brisbane West (BW) Lions Club initiative in association with the Ipswich Hospital Foundation (IHF), and 2023 will mark the 24th year of the ride in Ipswich and the Scenic Rim region, with cyclists testing their fitness and supporting worthy causes.
The Ipswich100 Charity Bike Rides offer cyclists three routes, from a challenging Imperial 100-mile ride (169km) to 100km and 50 km rides.
Cyclists start and finish at Ipswich’s picturesque University of Southern Qld campus and pass through farming land and bushland of the Scenic Rim with spectacular views to the Great Divide and Cunningham’s Gap.
The ride is famed as south-east Queensland’s friendliest, most scenic, and best-catered ride. This year’s ride manager David Clark says, “The emphasis is on rider safety and support with direction signage, course marshals and rest stops staffed by volunteers with free sports drinks, fresh fruit, buns and sunscreen.”
Despite Covid and the resulting reduced rider numbers the event has never had to cancel the ride. The 2022 event took total funds raised for local and Lions charities since 2000 to more than $ 1.3 million. When registering for our ride, you help local charities and good causes, such as IHF.
