The Women's 300 is a three-day, 300k event targeted directly at females that have a keen interest in cycling and an awareness of their social responsibilities.

The event was formed following the ongoing success of the Chain Reaction Foundation's 1,000 plus kilometre events that have been held since 2007 and to date, have raised over $16 million on behalf of its charity partners. Read more about the Chain Reaction Challenge here.

From the 13th to the 15th of November, 30 riders cycled through former gold mining towns in regional Victoria over three days, in support of the children charities Freedom Wheels and Radio Lollipop. Starting in Daylesford, the cyclists spent the first day on a 101km loop through Victorian spa country north to Castlemaine. Day two saw the ride get a little more serious as they took on Mount Macedon before the team tackled the final 110km on the third day, arriving in Melbourne after what was both a scenic and challenging ride.

KordaMentha and Chain Reaction congratulate all of the riders on their amazing efforts, including KordaMentha's own Brigitte Doupe, Manager in KM Sales & Marketing (cycling her third Women's 300 event!), Belinda Drew, People & Culture Director and Simone Woodall, Receptionist in our Sydney office.
