About the ride2017-12-01T14:28:43+00:00

Welcome to the 2018 GtoC annual bike ride. Our event raises money for Mental Health Research through Australian Rotary Health. The Rotary Club of Glen Innes are proud to sponsor RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) and Royal Far West children’s health scheme for their support in both catering and logistics throughout the week.

This years ride, from Ballandean to Boonah, travels through some of Queensland’s best wine, fruit and cropping country.

Visit the vineyards and orchards of the renowned Granite Belt.

Ride the back country roads and wonder at the panoramic views of the Southern Downs.

Enjoy the steep but stunning descent down the escarpment from the scenic rim to Boonah.


We’re sometimes asked what GtoC means. It’s quite simple.

Each year’s ride starts in or near Glen Innes. Hence the G.

Each year’s ride is timed to end immediately prior to the annual District 9640 Conference. Hence the C.

Why mental health?

The annual Ride for Rural Mental Health Research was created by Australian Rotary Health to help reduce the alarmingly high incidence of mental illness in rural Australia.
