My Story

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.

My Challenge

  • 33.0 km ride - Morning Ride - Sunday, November 3, 2019

    Logged this ride 36 days ago
  • 31 Oct 2019

    After 31 days of riding, I am happy to say that at 5pm this afternoon I raised my bike “Spec” in the air, deposited her in the back of the ute and declared October over. Spec will be spelled for a week or so and then sent to be serviced.

    Thanks to everyone for your support and helping me achieve my targets for this year’s Great Cycle Challenge. I have to say riding 2,000 km gives you plenty of time to think / not think, and learn the words to dozens of songs. I also really enjoyed seeing all the other riders’ stories and meeting some new Darwin people. The Great Cycle Challenge group were inspirational and giving lots of kudos from across Australia. The team behind the Great challenge were also amazing. Their apps, messages of support and resources make the challenge a lot easier.

    This is starting to sound like the captain of the winning rugby team's speech (Owen Farrell should have already prepared his ready for Saturday night in Yokohama) so while I am at it there are some people who deserve extra acknowledgement.

    I would like to thank:

    Alec for being the first person to jump on board, and the first person to like every Facebook post I made, and the rest of the family for their likes, comments and generous donations.

    Nigel for not divorcing me, after I sacrificed him for a couple of push bikes for a month.

    The team at work were great with their generous support, for listening to my stories, giving me leave so I could ride home every afternoon. If you liked my updates, then you can thank Jake at work he made me do them, if you didn't like my updates then you can also thank Jake at work - he made me do them.

    Rob from I Fitness Darwin was a vocal supporter throughout the challenge who has this knack of providing positive support that makes you work harder. He promoted the challenge all month. He also was kind enough to take me up on my offer of riding a km per dollar and then getting double the bang for his buck donating on double dollar day.

    Annette from Humpty Doo butchers for taking my donations tin and working hard to fill it - They have really yummy Black Angus steaks

    if you are out our way!

    Hannah and the anonymous donor who donated today ensuring that I would meet the target.

    The guy on the bike path who stopped and helped with my flat tyre.

    Spotify for providing me with around 83 hours of uninterrupted music, and Quad lock for gadget that locked my phone on to the handlebars of my bike, so I had access to interrupt the music.

    There are more and more things I could say about how every person who sponsored me helped. The reality is you guys did the important stuff and sponsored the challenge while I was out there having fun!

    THANK YOU EVERYONE you are all AMAZING.

    Our challenge pages stay open till around the end of November - so I’ll keep an eye out for any donations still coming in, however I will probably not be contributing much in kilometres.

    Mission Accomplished!

  • One Month, One Goal, One more day to go.
    30 Oct 2019

    I must say that October felt like the shortest months of the entire year, where did it go??

    Oh that’s right I took on the Great Cycle Challenge and have been pretty consumed by it!

    My initial goal was to raise One thousand Dollars and ride One thousand kilometres.

    My fund raising goal was pretty much achieved before I could even log One ride.

    I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to meet the promise I made to ride One kilometre for every dollar raised.

    Even still towards the end of the month I increased my fund raising target by One thousand dollars and eventually increased my ride target by one thousand kilometres.

    As I sit here now thinking about what a crazy month it has been, I have to say I am amazed that I managed to ride 2,000km by 5pm yesterday afternoon, One mission accomplished!

    Throughout the month I have had One crash; One near miss; One flat tyre; One ride in the rain; and lost about One kg per week. But it’s not over just yet, I will ride again tomorrow in the hope that I influence just One or maybe more people to join the fight with me and donate just a little bit to help CMRI find cures for childhood cancers.

    The Great Cycle Challenge is held every year and is the major fund raiser for the Children’s Medical Research Institute, this year 13,159 riders have raise just over 4 million dollars, it’s a massive achievement and a great cause.

    Working in a not for profit organisation myself I know what $4 million per year can do. Unfortunately it doesn’t move mountains, but it does make a positive difference. That difference is the reason why I will continue to ride right through to the end of October working to raise the last $120 needed to reach my fund-raising target.

    So thanks once again for all the support and generosity provided this month, don’t forget its not too late to get a mate to donate! https://greatcyclechallenge.com.au/Donate/Rider/139725

  • The last of the big rides
    27 Oct 2019

    So today being Sunday is the last opportunity for me to punch out some big numbers. On the bike early this morning heading for Darwin River Dam, because riding near water is therapeutic. It was really heartening riding through Berry Springs to see some big puddles on the ground, and to smell the newly washed Melaleucas and turkey bush. When is someone going to invent the app that allows you to share amazing scents through the internet, its got to be done just think of the potential!! For instance as well as sharing smells of newly washed bush land you could promote your clubs fund raiser at the Bunnings sausage sizzle by posting the addictive smell of sizzling onions!

    I guess it is inevitable that in every big Aussie road trip, you eventually clutter up the airwaves with a Cold Chisel album, so no surprise as I grind my way to 2,000 km for the month Jimmy finally held the spotify pride of place for my 92km ride. He did so well inspiring my legs to extra rotations on the roads of outer Darwin, and I actually do know every word to every one of his songs, gee my throat is sore and dry now!!

    I never did make it to Darwin River Dam though, I got to the gate and its closed to recreational users due to Cabomba control, Never mind I got to visit Berry Springs markets and recharge for the ride home with a smoothie, definitely not a wasted day.

    I have done a quick and dirty analysis of my fund raising and discovered that every email sent attracts one new sponsor - so look out for emails this week as I struggle to raise my last 300 dollars. I know emailing you lot is preaching to the converted, but I figure that must be what they do in church all the time. Feel free to share my ramblings with your friends or the unwashed if you think that they might just need a little nudge to join the challenge.

    Thanks again for your support_ Doing it for the kids for 4 more days.

  • Maths and music on the motorway
    21 Oct 2019

    Apparently the experts reckon that people gifted in maths are often gifted with musical talent. Sadly my last few rides are a testament to the fact that I am not gifted in either discipline, unfortunately for the innocent bystanders that doesn't mean I refrain from attempting them.

    When I say maths - I would say that it is actually the laws of physics that has been entertaining me as I ride into head winds, cross winds, and whirly winds.

    I started trying to remember formulas that would allow me to calculate the effect of head wind on my velocity and the energy I needed to counteract the force. Unfortunately E =MC2 was not cutting it, then I remember F=MA (force equals mass by acceleration).

    This seemed more likely however the more thought I gave to the problem at hand the slower I went - there was NO acceleration just deceleration as I pondered. At this point in time I wondered why all roads and paths are not made of the same glass like material that you glide over, and why so many of them are made from a very rough material, so came the question of calculating friction and its affect on speed. The coefficient of friction sprang quickly to mind - however after a few minutes wondering how to apply it in a formula I realised that I know the guys at NT bitumen, Ill just call them and see if they have any magic road making formulas they can hand over. '

    Maths done for the day the wind still blowing I switched on Spotify to keep the pace on track, I have been through the top hits, the country hits, the motivational tracks, hits from the 80's, songs to sing when you are driving, and that where the problem lies. Actually several problems: coaches from the voice say singing while you are running is good singing training, well I hope the same applies to singing while you ride ;also I dont know half the words', so I am becoming quite adept at singing NaNaNa, Hey Hey Hey, La La La etc. and have been prone to burst into song in every chorus, as long as I am not going up too steep a hill.

    I have now ridden over 1,400 km and suspect this is a form of madness that is setting in. Currently I have 78 km to meet my ride goal, and 200 km to equal my funds raised, and I have ten days to do it.

    Thanks for all your support in this crazy month, we are nearly there and well and truly on track. I have actually recorded the most kilometres of anyone in the NT, and am sitting 20th on the NT fundraising ladder! More surprisingly I am in the top 30 kilometres ridden across the Board, and 395th in fund raising, so once again thanks heaps for your support As you can see from the picture attached ( with a bit of luck) we are playing in the big boys sandpit!.

  • Thirteen days left in October
    18 Oct 2019

    So, nearly a full week has passed since my last update, and a bit longer since my last photo. This blogging stuff, is hard work, to be a professional blogger you would need to lead a very interesting and varied life, or have a great imagination and a gift for telling stories!

    Fund raising has its ups and downs too! One of my fellow riders Tracey, has put together a raffle from donated services, i think that is a great idea, especially since once of the services is a massage, it wasn't very difficult to convince me to buy those tickets (please let me win!!)

    I feel like I have been riding lots of kilometres, but I just had a look at my dashboard and I am not even hitting 500 km in a week. My legs say that 468 km clocked in the last six days was sufficient, and a couple of day this week I felt I should be staying at work longer, but as my title says there are only 13 days left in this challenge, and at least I am not doing Ocsober!

    Today I am off to the bike shop to buy some puncture repair equipment, I am on an enforced road riding rest until that happens, although I still have the mountain bike option.

    After dodging broken glass for over two weeks I finally must have picked up a piece on the way home yesterday. I know exactly why this happened: At lunch time I planned to go to the bike shop and purchase a bike pump and puncture kit, then I decided that I would just do it on the way home. On the way home I decided I just wanted to get home and sailed on past the shop. Once I was well and truly in the "middlest" part of nowhere on my ride that is when it happened.

    Lucky a good Samaritan appeared and lent me his pump which maintained enough air to get the final 5 kilometres to Palmerston. Also lucky that yesterday morning I decided to park at Palmerston so I could pick up dog food on the way home, the air in the tyre wouldn't have lasted any further and I would have had to walk again! I Really just wanted to get home by then, so I didn't stop and get dog food either, but nothing has happened to the dogs. One thing is for sure its way easier riding your push bike than pushing it!

  • subbing in with the solar car challenge
    13 Oct 2019

    After a two day road ride rest to maintain matrimonial harmony, it was time to hit the road and make up for lost time. With the need to fulfill the promise of riding a kilometre for every $ donated kilometres were today's goal, with that in mind I decided to do a pseudo Grand Fondo ride to make up for the ride I missed in August. Didn't quite do the 160 km that the Grand Fondo involves but i did manage to join the Hundred club today riding just over 100 km. The early start took me out along the relatively quite Cox Peninsula Road to the thriving metropolis of Berry springs before cutting back through Finn Road to get back into Darwin. Joining Tiger Brennan drive it became apparent that I have been hiding under a rock for a few days as it became very clear that the solar car challenge was on its way down the highway. The solar cars attract quite a following as they leave Darwin and the road side was littered in support crews and spectators, not wanting to miss the party I turned around at Baygon Haven, swapped sides of the road and subbed in with the Solar cars. The crowd were really supportive lots of waves photos and cheers from all the spectators and support crews. I am pretty sure it was lactic acid coursing through my veins rather than pure sunshine as I peddled out along Tiger Brennan, and there seemed to be plenty of sun to power the solar cars down the highway at a pretty impressive speed! One thing is for sure, Tiger Brennan drive was a great deal quieter than Conrod Straight in Bathurst, I guess we were offsetting some of the carbon emissions for the big race with the super silent sleek solar bug-like cars whooshing along. I did feel for the Stanford team, who had some sort of mishap just Darwin side of Palmerston and had to load up the car, they looked so disappointed, I hope they somehow get to continue.

    The donations rolling in have been fantastic with friends and family getting behind the challenge, I am blown away by the $1,555 dollars raised. I am really keen to keep this going, however, unfortunately I don't think I can guarantee riding any more kilometers if donations keep flowing! This is actually good news now - any one who didn't want to donate because I would have to ride, is now free to donate without feeling guilty, after all this is about raising funds for much needed research to keep our kids happy, healthy and out of hospitals. Doing it for the kids!!!

  • Take time to enjoy the Journey, while you are aiming for your destination
    10 Oct 2019

    I am really enjoying this years cycle challenge thanks to the Facebook group where 100's of riders are posting stories, and achievements. There are some really amazing efforts going on across Australia, and heaps of support which will fund important work to stop cancer from attacking our kids.

    Today was Kick cancers butt day, and heaps of money has poured in across Australia, and we are less than half way through!

    I get the feeling that I am lucky to be continuing after a slight incident this afternoon made me think about perhaps taking a bit more time to smell the roses on the way to your goal, and savour the little moments.

    It also made me realise that the sign in picture was actually there for a purpose!

    When I came across this sign last week my first thought was - no I have ridden all this way I am too tired to walk. I safely negotiated the obstacle, and ever since have registered thoughts like: As if; I wont be doing that; In your dreams; and I wonder if any cyclist has dismounted.

    Well this afternoon I nearly did dismount - it wouldn't have been pretty - it would have been face first! Casually riding through the obstacle with a drink bottle in one hand when I hit a bump, I did manage to save myself from tipping head first into the bike path however removed quite a large chunk of skin from my forearm.Luckily its a flesh wound that a rather large bandage fixed, and I will continue on the quest with a little more thoughtfulness, to make sure I stay in one piece.

    Thanks to everyone for your generous support, this evening I reached my fund raising goal and I promise to be more careful so that I complete the next 21 days, and the 500 km left for my ride goal.

    Take time to enjoy the Journey, while you are aiming for your destination

  • Day 9 musings
    9 Oct 2019

    9 Days; 667km under the belt: $1,055.65 in the bank, and my legs are walking with steps that go i round and round in small circles!

    After 16 commutes down the Stuart Highway to and from work, I am getting to know the traffic patterns, the potholes and the cruisey smooth bits (wish there were even more of them). The thing that does keep on surprising me is the broken glass everywhere, if you are planning on a stroll down the bike path wear sturdy shoes!

    Going to have to bring my John Brock book along next week as there are a couple of Eucalypts I would like to identify. I have to say I am really loving the Peltophorums, carpeting the bike paths with their yellow flowers I think they beat the Jacarandas that dress up Brisbane's streets in November hands down! I keep trying to take a photo, however cant seem to do them justice. Another of my favorites sites not so common between the Doo and Darwin, are the magnetic termite mounds, I found a batch of them out at Acacia on the weekend, they are not quite as majestic when the floodplain is dry and burnt but they still show you which way the wind is blowing from, and which way home is ( oh fancy that when you have 40 km to go you have no choice but to ride into the wind!)

    Tomorrow is Kick Cancers Butt day - otherwise known as double dollar day, I am going to put in my last big ride until Sunday, and earn a couple more dollars , hopefully some sponsorship will come in tomorrow so that the great cycle challenge sponsors match it dollar for dollar!

  • Day 3 Moving the Goal posts
    3 Oct 2019

    Day 3: Sunrise was beautiful this morning and the galahs seem to really be enjoying the warmer humid air and the earlier sunrises we are now experiencing. The daily commute to work is not that bad after all, I see new and interesting things every ride, and my legs really love it if something interests me enough to slow down for a better look ( that and red traffic lights).

    Yesterday afternoon I went through a bit of a panic as a car squealed out onto the Stuart highway 100 metres in front of me, hit the gutter went onto two wheels and nearly rolled then somehow went on the the dirt on the other two wheels and nearly hit a pole and roled and then finally found the bitumen and sped off. I cant believe that I didnt need to stop and help out an accident victim, however I am pretty sure it was the car reported stoel from Nightcliff yesterday!

    As the kilometres are ticking over, I feel that I might be able to offer a few more kilometres up for sponsoring at my usual rate of $1 per kilometre, so I just moved the goal posts and raised the bar. I am now aiming to ride 1,200km and raise $1,200.

    Thanks for helping make this challenge Great!

    1 Oct 2019

    Well the challenge has kicked off - and I am on the board now I have worked out how to upload my ride kilometres again. According to the leader boards yesterday challenge riders rode a whopping 85,203 km and have raised $1,271,302.62 Its going to be a big month!

    Yesterday I reached my fund raising goal thanks to the generosity of friends and family, I am excited that together we are part of this great cause and some of us have been contributing to the challenge for a few years now.

    I have created a plan that all being well will allow me to ride just over 2,000 km in the month, so I am hoping to keep gathering support along the way. Its not too late to hop on board and support this great cause.

    I am going to try and upload a photo of each ride, starting with

    Darwin Harbour yesterday, Yesterday I went for a bit of a scenic ride round Darwin at 7am yesterday, because I left my office keys at home. If the smooth silky waters of Darwin Harbour were an omen of things to come October is going to be smooth sailing
