From December 3 to January 16 a number of keen cyclists from across the country will set off on a 4,000km journey from Melbourne to Cairns, in a bid to promote healthy living and raise money to go towards cancer research, education and patient care. 

Steer North are now taking registrations for the 45 day cycle, as well as some smaller 1 day riding events. However, they also require some community assistance to ensure the riders are well looked after on their journey.

Heading from Melbourne to Canberra to Sydney and then Brisbane and Cairns, there will be some stop-off points in between and a requirement for food, shelter and warm showers.
