Entry Terms and Conditions

The Townsville to Cairns Bike Ride (“the Ride”) is organised by the Townsville to Cairns Bike Ride  Committee Inc. (TCBRC) to raise funds for research into the cure for childhood cancer. The Ride will take place from 25 July 2024 to 27 July 2024 and participants will ride 374km during the course of 3 days from Townsville to Cairns. You and any other participant that you register for the Ride (“Participant” / “I” / “My”) accept and agree to comply with these Entry Terms and Conditions (“Terms"):


  1. I represent and warrant that I have full legal authority and capacity to complete the registration for the Ride and to accept these Terms on my own behalf and/or where applicable, any other Participant that I am registering for. In these Terms, “Participant”, “I” or “Me” means and includes me (as an individual) and all other Participants I am registering, and by agreeing to these Terms, for whom I am waiving certain rights.

  3. I may register online on or before 5pm on Friday 7 June 2024 (AEST). Registrations after this time will only be considered at the discretion of TCBRC.

  9. TCBRC may, in its absolute discretion and without giving reasons for its decision, accept or refuse any registration. TCBRC will take advice from group leaders and other support crew as to the suitability of any Participant to start or continue the Ride taking into account all matters they deem necessary for the safety and comfort of the other Participants and for the safety and operation of the Ride overall.

Regardless of whether I have consulted with a doctor, I am aware of the risks of participating and voluntarily assume and accept those risks;
  12. I understand that my registration does not include personal or third party insurance and that TCBRC strongly recommends I obtain cover relevant to my individual circumstances;
