The Hartley Cycle Challenge

20th Anniversary  

 "2000 - 2019"

 Friday 22nd - Monday 25th November, 2019

Raised so far


Our goal






The Cycle Challenge is a unique, annual event, critical to supporting the work of Hartley Lifecare. The Challenge also helps to raise awareness of people living with disability and funds raised from this event support the knock down and rebuild of Hartley Court.

22 teams of 12 cyclists will ride from Canberra to Mt Kosciusko and return, a distance of 450 kms.

Each team has 2 dedicated support crew to accompany them the entire journey and we also have over 30 volunteers who help across the entire weekend to ensure the cyclists are safe, comfortable and well fed.

The teams are registered months in advance of the event, however they do sometimes have vacancies for new riders. If you are interested in riding in the Cycle Challenge please contact and we’ll try and get you into an established team.

The Cycle Challenge is Hartley Lifecare’s major annual fundraiser

The riders participation in this event and their hard work and team effort toward raising funds makes a major contribution to the mission of Hartley Lifecare to provide excellence in accommodation and life options for people with physical and complex disabilities.

Hartley Lifecare and those we support are incredibly grateful to these dedicated supporters.

Why your fundraising efforts for this year’s event are so vital

Hartley Court was a wonderful achievement for its time, it has now passed its capacity and it’s time to rebuild a best practice facility. Over the last 40 years, the development of new and innovative housing models and new ways of supporting people with disability has vastly improved. Incorporating the use of assistive technology means we can design and provide support that will foster independence, privacy and pride for our residents who call Hartley Court their home.
