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.

John

  • 4 weeks down and 3 days to go
    28 Oct 2018

    Reached the 500km target last week and with the help of my great cycling buddies, clocked up another 100 for my grandson Max, whose approach to tackling life’s difficulties is an inspiration to us all. Now I have 3 days left to knock over the extra 100 I claimed I’d ride, if Collingwood won the flag. We didn’t win but the team’s effort in 2018 inspired me 😁. Thank you again for all of your fantastic support.

  • Over halfway to 500km target and getting in ahead of the rain
    11 Oct 2018

    Reached the 280km mark today, just before the rain arrived. It's been great cycling weather this week and with my supporting cyclists, have enjoyed a glass of water at the West End Park Cafe, Lighthouse Restaurant at Cleveland Point and also at Pam's Cafe at Nudgee Beach. No ungainly dismounts, so far this week but I was forced to make a heading change when confronted by an oncoming jogger who was taking in the moment, with his eyes closed.

  • One week, 143km down and one rider downed
    7 Oct 2018

    Challenge is under way and all is going well. The weather held out and we enjoyed some great rides to Eight Mile Plains and to the Blackwood Cafe in Mitchelton. Most importantly, the coffee was great too. :)

    Special thanks to Pom, who has completed 50kms of her 100km Challenge and to Brian and Lyndon who dragged me across the kilometers this last week.

    Only incident was the hit run that I suffered on Friday when a cyclist passed and bumped me on the left side. Fortunately, I was able to drop my bike and land on my feet. Maybe the reason he targeted me and didn't stop or speak to me was the Collingwood sticker on my bike.

    Thank you all for your wonderful support and encouragement.

    Cheers, John & Pom

    30 Sep 2018

    Pom and I can’t wait to get started on the Challenge and will get underway tomorrow.

    Bikes have just undergone annual servicing. My chiropractor has fine tuned my body for the mission and Andy, my Physiologist has my support program squared away to ensure I see the distance.

    Thank you all for your overwhelming encouragement. We are very fortunate to have your support.

    We’ll keep you informed on our progress.

    Thank you all for your great support.

    Training is going well apart from a hint of saddle soreness, but that's NOT insurmountable.

    Managed to average 100km per week over the past 4 weeks.
