• 2018 Smiddy Challenge

It's the original Smiddy Challenge ... and the best!

If you haven't joined the peloton on the original Smiddy Challenge, then now's the time to sign-up.

Experience the Smiddy traditions of Mateship, Teamwork and Spirit as you ride beside friends old and new.

It's the original Smiddy Challenge we all know and love—1600 km from Brisbane to Townsville, the spiritual home of Smiddy.

For the first time we're spreading the Smiddy love a little further, taking in new towns, visiting old friends in welcoming communities and experiencing the Queensland countryside in a truly unique way over 9 life-affirming days.

Ride through deserted outback highways, warm country towns, stunning ranges and farmland.

Meet incredible people—from schoolkids cheering you in for lunch in central Queensland to country supporters who have been welcoming, feeding and housing Smiddy pelotons for a decade.

This is a life-changing experience of Mateship, Teamwork and Spirit, and we want you to be a part of it.

As part of your registration you'll get:
