Welcome to Paceline
2013 sees the fifth annual Paceline ride and this year we are visiting the beautiful island of Tasmania. The Paceliners will depart from Melbourne on Friday 8th November and will roll back in on Saturday 16th having covered approximately 1200 km in the “Ride to Cure Cardiac Arrhythmias”. Further information about Paceline 2013: Ride Tasmania is available here.
To raise awareness of cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) - a leading cause of stroke.
1 in 4 Australians suffer from a cardiac arrhythmia and with this number constantly growing, it is essential that every effort is made to promote understanding and develop treatments. Along the way, riders will be helping to promote the message – check your pulse.

To date we have directly funded research which enhances our understanding of these debilitating disorders and their prevention, treatment and possible cure.
