My Story

25 Aug 2018

This October I’m aligning my fitness goals with saving little lives by taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge.

I’ll be riding 200km to raise 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.

Cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 lose their fight every week.

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

Thanks for your support! 💛🚴🏽‍♀️

    ✨ 200KM DONE AND DUSTED!!!! ✨

    Thank you to all of my beautiful and generous supporters on this very challenging challenge! Safe to say I’ve pushed my limits and done so happily and proudly for this great cause in fighting kids’ cancer.

    I’ve now learned my comfortable ride length is around 20km and that’s a feat in itself considering my fitness levels just 6 months ago. And while I can happily say I’ve done it, I definitely will not be attempting any 50km rides in the foreseeable future! What a day that was.

    I’m so grateful for the words of encouragement, tips and even the lil laughs at my vintage cruiser pedals – they all made me more determined than ever to get the job done!

    💙🧡

  • Note to self – Strava app needs data ON to record!
    20 Oct 2018

    Stupid me thought it would be a grand idea to close all apps and turn on airplane mode to save phone battery mid ride. When I rode up to the PSP closure and detour sign before Farrington I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as I was tired and sore already, and I should have known better as I’d helped my team design the damn sign! All I could focus on was the positive in that I’ll capture some extra kms for my ride. I just followed the bike detour signs (kudos MRIA traffic team!), and only when I stopped for a quick water break did I realise Strava had STOPPED! My heart sunk not knowing how many kms had gone unrecorded! Lucky for Google Earth being able to map my path and measure distance to tell me I’d ridden an additional 6.32km. So that’s 56.52kms total for today!

  • Lunchtime wetlands
    15 Oct 2018

    No kms in this weekend just gone with the non-stop rain. Crammed some catch-up kms into my lunch break today lapping around Bibra Lake to tally another 21km on the register. Gorgeous and peaceful trail with lots of different bird species tweeting about. Spring must be here as there were so many swans with their lil cygnets lazing by the wetland banks. Longest distance I’ve ever ridden in one hit and no back pain, so wins all around!

    Thanks to all that have donated recently – I’ve got some very kind supporters out there!

  • And on the 11th day she rode her bike.
    11 Oct 2018

    So after jarring my back jumping up and down, cheering the Eagles win on 29 September and being anxiously out of action in this time, I finally got clearance from my Physio to start cycling again. Tonight I completed two rides. One stint to my boxing class, and the other on a scenic route home over the Tonkin Hwy PSP bridges. FELT SO GOOD!

    When I set this goal of 200km I didn’t consider any setbacks and with the month ticking by I was getting a little worried that time was running short. Now that I’ve broken in 10kms off the 200km goal, I’m more motivated than ever to smash the remaining 190km and make my supporters PROUD!

    Thanks to all for their extremely kind donations and support to date. Together, we’re saving little lives.

    And on the 11th day she rode her bike.
