To honour the Games and the gift that is organ and tissue donation we are inviting cyclists to join us on a charity ride the Tassie Transplant Ride. The ride designed to link the state of Tasmania in celebration of the Games. There will be main ride that takes 4 days and will take riders from Hobart to Launceston. It promises to be a memorable ride, starting in historic Hobart, climbing through Tassie fame highlands, dotted with beautiful wilderness, lakes and quaint villages.
The final day sees a great descent into beautiful Launceston which will host the 17th Australian Transplant Games in September 2020.
