UniSA's Ride for Pain
Friday 29 March 2013
Following the enormous success of UniSA’s inaugural Ride for Pain in 2012, cyclists will once again don their lycra to help raise awareness and research funds for chronic pain. Chronic pain has an enormous impact on society, with one in five Australians suffering from a chronic pain disorder that reduced their quality of life. It costs Australia around $35 billion in health care and reduced productivity each year and has major social and family consequences. How can you help? Join champion cyclist Patrick Jonker on Sunday 7 April for UniSA’s Ride for Pain.
Cyclists of all abilities are encouraged to participate, with a 20km River Ride along the picturesque River Torrens for recreational riders and families and a 100km Adelaide Hills endurance course (with an optional 45km shortcut) available to cycling enthusiasts.
Those with a passion for the cause – and the cycling talent – are challenged to conquer Corkscrew Road in the Corkscrew True King of the Mountain Challenge, taking place in conjunction with Strava and the Australian Institute of Sport.
