The route

Route map

Deserted outback highways, warm country towns and stunning ranges—just some of what's in store for you as part of the 2020 Bottlemart Smiddy Challenge!

You'll take on an epic adventure, cycling 1600 km from Brisbane to Townsville with mates old and new; and you'll raise vital funds for cancer research at Mater.
