Short Circuit Cancer Hunter Valley


On Sunday 23 November 2014, James Estate - Baerami is hosting Short Circuit Cancer – a six-hour mountain bike relay to raise funds for local charity CanTeen, who work to support young people whose lives have been turned upside down by cancer. It's a family friendly mountain bike event, so all you mums dads and kids, friends and corporate companies can create a team, ride and raise funds. You don't have to be a racer, just a rider!

Ride with us:

There are a few different ways you can ride with us:

  • Solo – you get to ride for six hours.
  • Create a team – if the idea of six hours on a bike solo sounds a bit tough, why not grab a few friends or family members and create a team (up to six riders per team). This way you can all ride a lap and then rest. All riders under 16 must have a signed parental waiver.
  • Juniors - Junior riders under 16 who want to create a team can register under the TEAM category. Please note all junior teams must have an adult (over 18) team leader who will be responsible for the team throughout the day. Junior teams will be required to attend a specific rider briefing on the day. If there are any junior riders who would like to participate but do not have a team, please get in touch at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can help find you some team mates.
  • Kids ride – for younger kids we'll have a supervised trail ride during the day, motor skills course, Bike clinic and a treasure hunt at the end of the day.
  • Entry Fees:
    $50 per person
    $150 per family (2 adults, 2 children under 16)

Why don't you also make a weekend of it.

James Estate Wines will open up an area for camping on the Saturday evening and also host a Wine Tasting for those interested. The cost is $10, which will also include a guided walk on Saturday afternoon. James Estate Wines have kindly donated these funds back to Short Circuit Cancer.
