Post Event Update

I have done it and here I am bragging about it. First of all, thanks to those that have sponsored so far, and those that have not done so yet, don't worry, fundraising goes well into 2020. innocent

 

Having not ridden bike for almost 10 years, and post back surgery in 2018, I did not think I would ever be able to ride long distances. Hence, when I first signed up for the Challenge Tour, I may have sounded excited and inspired to others, but deep down I was absolutely mortified. Training was fun for most parts but there were certainly days when going was tough, so thanks for those that encouraged and supported me throughout the year. 

 

On the day, I rode the highs, I rode the lows, I laughed, and I even shed a tear but I made it, I crossed the finish line with pride and sense of relief!

Once again, thanks for the sponsorships and support. Please consider sponsoring as every cent counts!

Let The 'Fun' Begin

I would like to thank you all for the support given so far. The messages are a great inspiration when the training gets hard.

I'm Riding for a reason in January

I’m challenging myself during the 2020 Santos Tour Down Under (TDU) in January to ride 165km in order to fundraise funds to beat the cancer.

The 2020 charity ride commitment was decided upon at the 2019 TDU Challenge Series when I rocked up at the start line oblivious to the existence of this great cause. Having lost uncle to cancer Xmas 2018, the decision was an easy one, ride the full length in his memory.

This should be a great challenge, having only ridden 60km in 2019 Challenge Tour after back surgery in 2018.

RIP Uncle.
