As a self-supported bikepacking event, Rebel Riders are responsible for their own accommodation, food arrangements, gear and safety but are welcome to ask questions in the Facebook group chat.

Registrations for the 2023 event are now closed. Join the mailing list below to be notified of future events. 

Event contribution
In the spirit of bikepacking, there is no event fee but to show appreciation for the trails, and volunteers behind them, you are asked to make a donation to the three organisations responsible for the purpose-built trails we will ride on The Rebel Ride. The suggested donation is $15 - 20 per trust (total event cost $45 - $60) but you choose what you can afford or think is fair. 


You will be asked to send proof of your donations upon registering (instructions in the registration form).
