Crescent Head recently saw the 2019 Late Mail Postie Bike Ride pass through on their 2,000 km journey back to Mudgee.
Started six years ago, the annual charity event tries to raise awareness and funds for Wings4Kidz, a not for profit charity which provides free transport to medical treatment for kids from regional areas.
Wings4Kidz CEO, Brendan Crane, is a multi-ride veteran and says that the ride has three main goals.
"The first one is for everyone to have fun, if they have fun they'll come back again next year," he said.
"The second one is to raise money, the more we raise, the more kids we can help. Lastly, is to raise awareness, if one family in need learns about us from the ride, then it will all have been worth it."
Despite the good intentions of the group, it hasn't been the easiest of journeys; the riders have been averaging 330 to 350 km a day, and a spate of recent thefts slowed progress.
"A few of our bikes have been stolen, it's not ideal, but we will push through and get our riders back on the road," Brendan said.
"This year has been our biggest yet, the first year we had 24 riders, and raised $ 84,000, now only six years later, there are 50 riders, 11 support personal, and we are on track to raise $150 000."
Started by Jason and Naomi Turner, the Late Mail Postie Bike Ride has seen growth every year since its inception.
"It was the brainchild of Jason and Naomi, at the time they had a young family, and wanted to do something to help young children in need," Brendan said.
"Every year, we throw five or six more riders into the group, the lifetime total raised by these rides is $750 000 over the six years, which is a massive effort from everyone involved.
"Our organisation is 100% volunteer-based, no wages, no administration fees, that's why I think so many people show their support, everything we raise goes towards the service."
After a quick stop off in Crescent Head on Thursday, the 2019 Late Mail Postie Bike Ride is scheduled to finish at 3 pm today in Mudgee.
"Lunch in Crescent Head was fantastic, the locals on our journey, for the most part, have been great and very accommodating," Brendan said.
"Next year, we will keep going and try a different route. I reckon I've got another ten years in me at least."
