I'm Riding for a reason in January

I am dedicating this January to ride as many km’s as I can to support the many South Australians impacted by cancer. 

The money raised through Ride for a reason enables Cancer Council to fund vital prevention, research, advocacy and support programs that save lives.

With one in two Australians diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, the need to find better ways to detect and treat cancer is real.

Donate to support my ride so together we can work towards a cancer free future!

Nearing the finish line

Saturday 29th Jan
Hello to anyone who ends up checking my progress. Finished the last 100kms on my excersice bike at home due to injuries from a fall whilst out riding. Was really bummed to have came so close to my target K's and then got injured, was very concerned about not reaching my target, not because it really mattered in the scheme of things, donations had already been allocated etc but more because I've got into the habit of not making excuses and committing 100% to goals set. I'm grateful for my life and health and feel blessed that I'm in a position to help out good causes and people in less fortunate circumstances. Quietly shooting for 400kms now, just to push myself a bit harder. Struggling with injuries but determined to ride for a reason - no better reason than helping those affected by Cancer.

Happy New Year

Saturday 1st Jan
After a late night and a less than inviting day due to the temperature, I finally got going and started this year's Ride for a Reason. Only 19kms but have to start somewhere, will post again once I've reached 100km's.
