• Cycling in Centennial Parklands Health and Lifestyle

    Cycling plus charity equals Centennial Parklands

 

Centennial Parklands is one of the best destinations for cycling in Sydney, and we regularly support the community through charitable events and fundraisers. When the two come together, we’re also there to support!

Over the last few years, literally millions of dollars have been raised for charitable causes across Centennial Parklands – and we’re currently supporting a range of cycling-related fundraisers:

 

The Ride to Conquer Cancer & The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers

Charity: Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, supporting cancer patient needs.

A two-day cycling adventure through the scenic New South Wales countryside. Recently the guys behind this fundraiser held a promotional activity in Centennial Park to raise awareness of the ride and the cause.
