Frequently Asked Questions

What do my riding abilities need to be to qualify for the 2021 RFSK?

Riders should be able to consistently and confidently ride 28-35kms in a bunch, and have the endurance to ride at least 150kms in one day.

What type of bike should I be riding in the 2021 RFSK?

All riders are expected to use a Road Bike (not a time trial bike, BMX, eBike, mountain bike, hybrid bike or single speed bike) which has been fully serviced prior to the tour. Note: All riders are encouraged to have new tyres to reduce the instance of punctures.

How much do I need to fundraise to be eligible for the 2021 RFSK?

All riders are expected to raise a minimum of $6,000 prior to the ride, to be eligible to join the tour.

Alternatively, you can get in touch with our team directly at fundraising.sa@rmhc.org.au or 08 8267 6922.

What happens if the event is cancelled due to COVID-19?

In the case that this event is made impossible to proceed, either by force majeure events (such as a COVID-19 outbreak) or by acts of third parties (such as strikes, terrorist acts or government orders), negotiations would take place with participants in terms of the return/refund of registration fees with potential to transfer funds raised to a future fundraising event (within 12 months of the planned event) if the participant chooses to participate again.  If the participant elects not to ride in the subsequent years event, all funds raised by the fundraiser at the point of cancellation will be retained by the charity. 

RMHC SA will take every measure to notify Riders of any changes to the schedule as soon as possible. 

If I don’t have the riding abilities required, is there another way to get involved?

We will be running a Virtual Ride For Sick Kids in September 2021, which is open to riders of all ability levels - from beginner to pro - in a self-paced format. Stay tuned for more information!
