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 takes place from 16 to 26 March 2017. The ride covers 1,000km+ over seven gruelling days around Tasmania. 

Riding with the spirit and motto 'For Those Who Suffer, We Ride' the tour aims to raise AUD50,000 for The Snowdome Foundation and their own fights against Blood Cancers.

BUT IT’S NOT A RACE

 

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.

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.’

 

Fighting for every inch of road is like fighting for every moment of life. That’s why the ride needs to be tough. To date the FireFlies' three tours (The FireFlies, The FireFlies West and The FireFlies Antipodes) have raised over AUD3 million globally for those who truly suffer.
