Dozens of cyclists will descend on Mount Gambier tomorrow (March 20) as part of the Tour de Cure Signature Tour.

They will have well earned a rest in the Blue Lake city having ridden 194km from Warrnambool.

On the following day, the charity riders and support crews will have breakfast at the Umpherston Sinkhole and then make the 128km ride northwards to the next overnight stop at Robe.

En route, they will call at Beachport Primary School and have lunch on the grassed area adjacent to the recreational boat ramp at Beachport.

All going well, the Tour de Cure will finish in Adelaide on Saturday, March 23.

The Signature Tour is a 10-day event, with nine days of riding for full tour participants from Hobart to Adelaide,

Funds raised from the Signature Tour goes towards Tour de Cure’s annual grant round, where Australia’s brightest researchers can apply to have their cancer projects funded by Tour de Cure.

The Tour de Cure grants committee focus on grants that truly impact our knowledge of cancer and treatment options for the future.

The charity ride has been going for 17 years and the fundraising target for 2024 is at least $2m.

Riders are obliged to pay a fee to cover expenses as well as make a donation to Tour de Cure.
