The FIREFLIES ANTIPODES

The FireFlies Antipodes is a group of cyclists riding with their hearts to beat blood cancer. The tour was brought to Australia and New Zealand with riders completing the inaugural tour from Christchurch to Queenstown in February 2015. 

Its second tour circumnavigated Tasmania in 2017 and now we again travel to New Zealand to ride the nearly 1,000km journey from Christchurch to Queenstown in February 2019 over six gruelling days. 

Riding with the spirit and motto 'For Those Who Suffer, We Ride' the tour aims to raise AUD$100,000 for The Snowdome Foundation and their own fight against Blood Cancers.

Our Story


THIS IS NOT JUST A BIKE RIDE

Our Story


THIS IS NOT JUST A BIKE RIDE

 

Inspired by the courage it takes to fight cancer, The FireFlies Antipodes is a celebration of life and friendship. Bicycles are involved, but so are tears, laughter, mountains, ice-creams, rivers, reggae music and uncommon amounts of joy (and pineapple lumps).

The FireFlies is a family.
Being a FireFly is a privilege earned and measured by how much you give rather than how much you take.

THE SPIRIT OF THE FIREFLIESLIES AT THE BACK, NOT AT THE FRONT

 

All FireFlies are created equal. Anyone can do it. Often the longer you take to get there, the more you give to someone else and the more you learn about yourself.

‘I’VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING SO HARD IN ALL MY LIFE.’

Our Story 5


‘I’VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING SO HARD IN ALL MY LIFE.’

 

Fighting for every inch of road is nothing like fighting for every moment of life. That’s why the ride needs to be tough. To date the FireFlies' four tours (The FireFlies, The FireFlies West, The FireFlies Antipodes and The FireFlies Patagonia) have raised over AUD3 million globally for those who truly suffer.
