The Red Sky Ride is a fundraising event for Solaris Cancer Care who offer unconditional support to all people in Western Australia affected by cancer, including carers and family members, through all stages of the illness, including long-term survivors and bereaved families.

The ride is over four days starting at Albany and finishing in Perth. On Sunday, the cyclists stopped in at Bunbury's Solaris Care and spent quality time with patients and staff who are the inspiration for the ride. While the ride is now over the fundraising has not stopped and people can still donate to the cause. The Cycling Development Foundation partnered with Solaris for the event through Veris Racing Team.

Solaris chief executive David Edwards said 90,000 people a year in WA are diagnosed with cancer which meant the care Solaris provides was critical.
