Welcome to the Long Ride™ 4th – 11th May 2013 - CAIRNS

The Long Ride™ is designed to encourage you to do something totally different in your life.  It is about life on the road, meeting new people, and exploring yourself as you do something you love to do - ride. The Long Ride™ will enable you to touch upon the freedom seldom experienced by riding around your local area.  You can do this by taking a chance, meeting a new challenge and experiencing life on the road through the most beautiful country in the world.   There is no better way to spend your time and energy.  If you want a challenge, to do something different, if you want to make a contribution to the community, then join the Long Ride™ and visit places you have never been, make new friends and above all make a difference.

Fact Sheet:

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australia (except for non-melanoma skin cancers) and the second greatest cause of cancer deaths in men. It is estimated that over 18,700 new cases were diagnosed in Australia. Tragically, more than 2,900 Australian men each year die from prostate cancer. In the early stages, there are few symptoms of prostate cancer; however, if detected early, prostate cancer is often treatable and curable. This is why men aged 50 and over, or 40 if there is a family history of prostate cancer should not wait for symptoms; they should talk to their doctor about prostate cancer - a simple step that could save your life.
