In 2018 we are cycling for the 13th time around Tasmania for people with diabetes!

Thank you for joining us; whether you are a joining us on the ride or a supporter of one of our dedicated participants. Your support is appreciated. 

PolliePedal is a unique 3-day road cycling event designed for cyclists who are seeking a challenging ride through the beautiful Tasmanian landscape, and for those who like adventure, friendship and engaging with the local community.

In 2018, we are heading to the beautiful north-west and northern Tasmania.

Starting in Ulverstone on the Friday we will head to Penguin for the launch before heading south to Riana, we then wind our way east to finish the day in Port Sorell. Saturday will see us head south towards Selbourne, Rosevale and Bridgenorth before heading north again to finish in Beauty Point for the night. Our final day see’s us travel down the picturesque Tamar River, and end our 3 day ride in Perth.

Since the inaugural ride in February 2006, Diabetes Tasmania has worked in collaboration with the Hon. Guy Barnett MP to stage PolliePedal. His support has been invaluable and has helped to make the event such a success.

Riders are asked to provide their own bicycle and cycling equipment.

Your participation donation includes: accommodation, most meals, jersey, daily laundry service, support vehicles and staff.
