It’s time to put those legs to good use and join WA’s largest community cycling event, now in its 14th year.
MSWA Ocean Ride, powered by RetraVision, is an annual charity bike ride that will take place on Sunday, 12th November alongside some of our most breathtaking coastline from Fremantle to Hillarys.
If you’re no powerhouse cyclist or cardio queen then fear not, because there is a course on the day to suit all fitness levels, ages, and abilities from short 10km family rides to an epic 140km challenge.
Not only will you be getting sweaty and having fun whilst taking in the dazzling views, your participation will also help make a real difference to the thousands of West Australians living with neurological conditions.
Chances are, you or someone you know has a reason to ride for a loved one or mutual friend living with these conditions, which can range from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) to stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Motor Neurone Disease, Acquired Brain Injury, and Huntington’s Disease — just to name a few.
Whatever your motivation, you can participate solo or encourage the whole office or family to get together and join as a team to raise money and cycle the MSWA Ocean Ride.

Who is MSWA?
MSWA provides much-needed support for people living with neurological conditions.
They are a non-government, not-for-profit organisation, with all money raised going directly to providing a range of support and services to people living with neurological conditions.
The team of experienced nursing and allied health professionals provide information and a range of care from the time of diagnosis, while MSWA also provides funding for vital research projects into neurological conditions. Over the last fourteen years, through fundraising activities such as this, MSWA has been able to contribute more than $34m to research into finding the cause, better treatments, and a cure for MS and other neurological conditions.
