The perfect way to raise funds for children and families. This years fundraiser is on again.

Check in at The Basin Reserve anytime from 6:30am-7:00am and collect your wristband. Depart when you are ready - there is no set time or mass group start.

Then you ride The Crucifix at your own pace and in any order, but you should go to Sky High at least once!

Our recommendation is to do the four climbs "clockwise" starting with 1 in 20:

Up The 1 in 20 (6.8 km @ 4%), then through Olinda and up to Sky High then down to Montrose
Up Inverness Road (2.5km @ 9.1%), then down through Sassafrass, Sherbrooke & Kallista to Monbulk
Up The Wall (5.2 km @ 5.7%), then down through Ferny Creek to Upper Ferntree Gully
Up The Devil’s Elbow (5.5 km @ 6.9%), then down the 1 in 20 to finish

We will have a support station in the park at Sassafrass (at the top of 1 in 20) with plenty of Hot Cross Buns, red frogs, water and music to keep you pumped!

All proceeds go directly to the RCH Good Friday Appeal and we want to smash last year's amazing effort! We are asking all riders to donate $20 to join in on the fun for such a wonderful cause.

Not up for the full thing? No problem! 1 in 20 is a lovely climb which is manageable by most cyclists and a great introduction to the Dandenongs. Join our support crew at the top and cheer on your fellow riders. We can also recommend some other roads and climbs in the area.

Want More? Sure! Go for The Super Crucifix! To claim this you must go to Sky High four (4!) times - once after after each climb. This is approximately 101km and 3100m vertical. The Strava route is available here:
