Tour De Legacy at a Glance
Since 1923, Legacy has kept a promise to help the families of our fallen heroes. So far we have helped over 100,000 widows and families and stand ready to support a new generation of Australians who serve their country.
Should the unthinkable happen, Legacy is there to provide caring and compassionate support and services that enhance the lives and opportunities of affected families through innovative and practical programs.
With over 5,900 volunteers around Australia, our programs are designed to protect basic needs, advocate for entitlements, rights and benefits, assist families through bereavement and help people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.
Tour de Legacy was first launched in 2013 as the brainchild of a handful of passionate and determined Adelaide cyclists in conjunction with the Legacy Club of Adelaide (Legacy). The first two editions included the likes of 17 time Tour de France finisher Stuart O’Grady and Patrick Jonker.
Now in its third edition, the significance of the 2018 Tour de Legacy is to commemorate the final year of the Centenary of the ANZAC, 100 years since the end of WWI, with a ride throughout the various battlefields of the Western Front in France and Belgium. Launching from London with a Royal send-off, the group will ride 900kms over 8 days before attending the Centenary Memorial Service at the Australian National Memorial, Villers-Bretonneux on Remembrance Day, November 11 2018.
