How the Virtual Ride Works:

  • We will be using the RGT Cycling platform to complete the 2-day Tour. This platform is FREE for this Event! 

  • You will need to download the RGT App if you don't have it, for either Apple or Android. One for your Phone (RGT Cycling) AND one for your Tablet/Computer (RGT Screen). You will need 2 devices to run this application.

  • You will receive multiple links for each stage of the Tour, prior to the Event, that you will need to register for. There will be a start time for each Stage so all you will need to do is click on the 'Join' button for each Stage start (aim for 15min before scheduled start), and you will spawn onto the start line alongside your fellow riders.

  • We will be riding on Iconic Cycling Roads across 4 Continents and 8 famous cycling races. So you will get a taste of each of these with the length of each stage being approximately 30km.

  • There will be 4 Stages each Day and will run back to back with enough time for a drink/toilet break (10-15min each) between each Stage, and one 'Lunch' Stop each day (approximately 30min).

  • During these breaks you can click 'Join' on the next Stage and spawn onto the startline with a countdown clock running to ensure you don't miss the start.

  • You are free to ride at your own pace or in your own groups pending fitness levels and experience. You can choose to ride ALL 8 Stages or select the ones you wish to do! Your CHOICE!

  • There will be a minimum cut-off time for each Stage to ensure you don't miss the start of the next Stage. This will be communicated during the ride.

  • While Fundraising isn't mandatory, we do ask that you support the Mental Wheels Foundation's initiatives. As encouragement we have some amazing random draw prizes for those who fundraise over certain amounts. So be sure to check them out! The odds are in your favour!

  • Tour de France

  • Giro d'Italia

Freeze Festival: Sydney - Dee Why - Saturday, August 28 2020.


The Festival is a celebration of music in a fun family atmosphere, as well as promoting positive mental health via a medium ‘music’. 
This has been clinically proven to improve your state of mind. The concept is to showcase the impact that music has on mental health via a mix of amazing seasoned artists as well as young musicians that have formed bands and are writing their own music.

- The Festival is in collaboration with the Mental Wheels Foundation and their Music Scholarship program run by Big Music Studios.
- The program will include 4 young bands (under 25 years old) and their Mentors, creating a mix of well know artist and up and coming artists – capped off by a headline Band/s performing as the main act/s.
- It is called the Freeze Festival as it is held during Winter in the open air (2021 event is at James Meehan Reserve on August 28 2021). We will encourage people to head outdoors, rug up, brave the cold, and experience Snow with snow making machines and life size snow globes. This combined
with great food offers will create a fun atmosphere for families and activities for the young and old.

**All funds raised go to the Mental Wheels Foundation life changing mental health initiatives.
