The Cardiac Challenge offers you a fantastic physical challenge, in a stunning part of the world, along with the opportunity to raise funds for a great cause. Since the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation launched the event in 2007, the annual Cairns to Cooktown bike ride has raised more than $1.7 million to improve cardiac care services in the Far North.

Cyclists come from throughout Queensland, interstate and overseas to tackle the three-day event. You may be attracted by the physical challenges of the 335-kilometre ride, which includes several gruelling stretches up the Kuranda Range Road and the Desailly Range. Or how about the opportunity to cycle through terrain that varies dramatically - from lush rainforest to tropical Savannah - ending beside the dazzling waters of the Coral Sea?

Laughter and camaraderie is guaranteed, along with country hospitality in communities that benefit economically from the annual influx of riders!
