  • The floof
    15 Oct 2019

    The floof falls from the kapok or cotton tree each year. Here’s my bike from today’s lunch ride surrounded by the floof. Much floof

  • What’s it like cycling in Canberra?
    13 Oct 2019

    Bike paths, farm animals and nature galore! This is a pic of my ride last week around Dairy road - forms part of the Eastern Basin of Lake Burley Griffin. There’s a few cows before the land transitions into wetlands.

  • Return on investment
    8 Oct 2019

    Heya!

    Quick shout out to the champions who’ve already sponsored- living legends, and shout out to the future legends! I know you’re out there.

    This could possibly be your best investment yet. All funds raised will support Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer

    Together, we could make a big impact and the world of difference to families and kids living with Cancer.

    Extra benefit: you’re puttin extra chips in the barrel for supporting Australia’s science and research. How awesome is that?

    Please sponsor today - Thanks heaps and take care

  • Magpies see me rollin’, they swoopin’
    4 Oct 2019

    As Spring is here, so are the young magpies. Yesterday, I had my first swoop and it reminded me that Magpies care about their families too.

    Just like people, they’re doing their best to protect their kids, their families. I feel that there’s a lot of good in trying to protect what we have.

    Working toward what we can change is better than standing still. So like the Magpie, good to get in there and have a swoop at what we can! :-p

    I found this photo in Canberra Wildlife fb group- the photo is by a local Canberra photographer called “A Lizards View”: https://www.thelizardsview.net/index

  • We’ve raised over $1000 towards kids cancer! Thank you so much
    2 Oct 2019

    Thankyou so much for your support- collectively, we’ve raised well over $1000 towards fighting kids cancer!

    I feel happy for my friends and family, that there is a supporting community around us and it brings me hope for the future.

    If You’re not already familiar; I’m riding 500km for the GCC this month and raising funds for kids Cancer research.

    Why am I doing this?

    Cancer is an aggressive bitch and I’m sure we’ve all experienced or know of someone close we’ve lost.

    I do think that we have the power to change our lives, the lives around us and those who live with Cancer.

    I think that if science and research was adequately supported - then we would stand a chance to solve and tackle these community problems.

    Then, and maybe then, families, friends, colleagues and neighbours would live their lives and perhaps, still be with us today.

    Thank you to everyone that has supported me so far, I couldn’t of done this without you.

    If you would like to sponsor, please do

  • 100km in a day! That’s one hell of a Canberra ride
    29 Sep 2019

    Heya!

    At the end of the Oct, I plan to challenge myself to do 100km in a day of Canberra’s three lakes for October’s GCC.

    The Lake Trio: Ginninderra, Burley and Tuggeranong.

    In the build up to this, I will be cycling more than average length rides. As evidenced by today’s 42km ride round Ginninderra and Burleys western loop.

    I’ve never done a 100km ride in my life and perhaps the most I’ve ever accomplished in cycling in a day is 60km - by complete fluke. So no doubt this will be a challenge

    Please support me in raising money for this great cause and I’ll see you out on the tracks!

    100km in a day! That’s one hell of a Canberra ride
