My Story

20 Aug 2020

My name is Ian Snare and my wife and I live in a great over 50's village called Halcyon Glades in Caboolture in Queensland. I cycle most days for enjoyment and for my physical and mental health.

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.

Ian Snare

My Challenge

  • Job Done ..... but can I do more in the next 3 days??
    28 Oct 2020

    A pleasant ride to Elimbah and back has got me over the 1,000 km mark. Very satisfying. Body feels good ....slight ache in lower back ....but who cares!! That sludgy exhausted feeling that one gets when I don't exercise is a distant memory. Ones life is so much better in quality when we don'y have that sedentary exhaustion.

  • Wed 14th October....151 kms in one day.
    14 Oct 2020

    Today I rode more kms than I have ever ridden before. My last record was 137 kms in Tasmania about 7 years ago. I was surprisingly good when I finished. Backside and wrists are quite sore. I have been overwhelmed by the donations that have come from the incredibly generous residents of Halcyon Glades which is the lifestyle Village in which I live. All of those donations went in today and so are matched equally for this Wednesday

  • Today was a very big one!!!!
    7 Oct 2020

    I set out this morning with a desire to get over 100kms. When I had done 100kms I thought I could do a few more. But for the fact we had organised a street party at 4-30pm. I reckon I could have done over 150 kms. Not bad for a Geriatric cyclist!!!

  • October 4th ..... Ride to Wamuran and then North on some back roads
    4 Oct 2020

    Started riding with my cycling shoes and clips today after I got the drill to my cycling shoes to let in more air. Haven;t used clips since Tassie.

    Curash medicated talcum powder sprinkled liberally in my nether regions before riding is solving the sore bum problem together with Sudocreme rubbed in overnight. A few sharp hills today......made the old bloke grunt!!!
