The Challenge

The Great Southern Crossing is a virtual cycling charity challenge for teams of up to five riders that launched on 1 September 2016.

Throughout the event, cyclists log their kilometres on their regular rides using Strava or MapMyFitness and track their progress to see how far they can go on the epic 5,200km virtual route crossing Australia, all while raising funds for their favourite cause.

The route for Great Southern Crossing. 5,200 kms.

The Cause

By riding for Oxfam Australia, you’ll be supporting people like Brian who used to make 15 trips a day on his bike to the Nile River to collect water for his community. He’d carry eight 25-litre jerry cans per trip — that's three tonnes of water a day! Whilst here in Australia, it’s as easy as turning on a tap… Oxfam’s work in places like South Sudan is focused on getting clean water to people who need it most. This means that Brian now collects water from an Oxfam water tap much closer to his village.

Join us today to help us reach us reach more people who desperately need our help.
