District cyclists will ride 400km from Mildura to Echuca to raise money for Echuca hospital this weekend.
The Port to Port cycling tour is a two-day event which sees teams raise money for various causes.
Twenty-four riders and four support crew will be part of the Echuca Regional Health team which will put money towards equipment in the new hospital.
Team member Ray Hamilton said the event, which is organised by Mallee Family Care, had been running for 14 years.
He said most riders completed the whole length of the race, though it was possible to do as a relay.
The riders will spend tomorrow night in Swan Hill and are expected back in Echuca about 3pm Sunday.
Last year, the ERH team raised $24,500 which was put towards the ERH Education Centre.
Mr Hamilton said a number of district businesses were supporting the ride.
