Did you know more than 60 Queenslanders are diagnosed with diabetes every day? The 2017 event beneficiary is Diabetes Queensland, given our shared purpose of building a healthier community through increased physical activity, specifically cycling.  

Money raised during Bike Week and via the Great Brisbane Bike Ride will help Diabetes Queensland continue to provide much needed support, research and education about this condition. 

You can start your own fundraising page or make a donation via the event Everyday Hero page.

Please note, creating a fundraising page does not automatically register you a place to participate in the event.
