Canberra BMW


After the resounding success of last year's Ride to Raise pilot event, Canberra BMW is thrilled to announce its official sponsorship of this year's Pedal for Purpose. This collaboration is set to bring together individuals, businesses, and communities for a shared cause – raising awareness for autism in Australia.

At Canberra BMW, we understand the power of partnership and the impact that a united community can have. Teaming up with The Ricky Stuart Foundation and in partnership with Rapha Australia, Pedal for Purpose is more than just a cycling event – it's a statement of solidarity and support for those affected by autism.

Last year's Ride to Raise laid the foundation for what would become a movement of significance. The response from participants, supporters, and the community at large was overwhelming. The experience underscored the importance of coming together to make a difference, propelling us forward with renewed determination.

Building on the success of last year's pilot event, we are honoured to take on a larger role as a sponsor of Pedal for Purpose this year. Our commitment to creating positive change aligns seamlessly with the values of The Ricky Stuart Foundation, making this partnership a natural fit.

The choice to ride 102,000km isn't arbitrary. It represents the 102,000+ children diagnosed with autism in Australia, each of whom deserves understanding, acceptance, and support. By pedalling these kilometres collectively, we stand up for their rights, challenge misconceptions, and amplify their voices.

From October 9th to 15th, we invite you to be a part of this incredible journey. Whether you're an avid cyclist, a passionate advocate, or a local business leader, your participation matters. Don your cycling gear, and prepare to ride alongside a community united by purpose.


Canberra BMW proudly stands alongside The Ricky Stuart Foundation in the Pedal for Purpose challenge, championing the cause to raise funds and increase awareness for autism in Australia.

Whether you're a valued customer, an associate, or a staff member of the Canberra BMW Group (comprising BMW, Motorrad, or MINI), we extend a warm invitation to be part of our team. Together, we aim to achieve our cycling goal of 5,000 kilometers and raise $10,000 in support of The Ricky Stuart Foundation. Join us in this meaningful journey.

Thank you to our Sponsors
