Newcastle to Dubbo Zoo2Zoo
2022 will see the Newcastle to Dubbo ride take place between Friday 22nd April 2022 and Sunday 24th April 2022. Day 1 sees us ride from Newcastle Beach to Denman. Day 2 from Denman to Gulgong. Day 3 from Gulgong to Dubbo.
The cost of the ride is $600. This includes all accommodation, meals and "First Beer in Gear". Drinks at dinners at own expense. You will need to own a Zoo2Zoo (doesn't change, so the one worn in 2008 can be still worn. These are $100.
In 2006 twelve friends set out to cycle from Taronga Zoo to the Western Plains Zoo with the simple goal of raising enough money to secure Dubbo a spot on the Charity Edition of Monopoly. Arriving in Dubbo after 420km over three days of cycling, with Dubbo securely on the Monopoly board, the Zoo2Zoo was born.
Since 2009 the Zoo2Zoo has raised in excess of $2,000,000 for the Black Dog Institute, a not-for-profit, educational, research, clinical and community-oriented facility offering specialist expertise in depression and bipolar disorder.
It is expected that each participant attempt to raise awareness and funds for the Black Dog Institute using the everydayhero fundraising page.
