I am riding in memory of my dear Mum. In addition to all the little kids who are currently battling cancer, I will be thinking of my lovely neighbour, Barbara, my friend's brother Bill, and my cousin, Robert. They are currently in the fight of their life, and hopefully kicking cancer's butt. I am also riding for all our loved ones who have battled and won, and also those who have sadly lost the fight - Mum, Aunty Joyce, and my sister-in-law, Evelyn. Due to research, cancer treatments are improving all the time. This is why I ride.

My Story

28 Jul 2021

I am taking part in my 7th Great Cycle Challenge, to fight kids' 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 little kids die every week. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it. So, I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their awesome work. Your donation will support life-saving research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of childhood cancer. Please support my challenge by making a donation, to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Together, we can save little lives. Let's kick cancer's butt!!!

    That's definitely now a wrap! I did do an additional 2 rides after meeting my goal. I have a tradition of riding out to the big roundabout, for a selfie with Pablo the penguin, while wearing my Super Hero jersey. I couldn't disappoint him!

    Thank you!!! See you again in 2022!!!

    Well, the weather has turned sour, so I am calling an end to my challenge.

    With 3 days still to go of the official challenge, GCC riders have pedalled 2,604,180 kilometres and raised an astounding $6,542,888!!! Thanks to your awesome support, I have pedalled 601k of my 600k target, and raised $3,576.66!!!

    Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me, and pushed me past the $18,000 total fundraising mark for my 7 GCCs! That's got to make a butt kicking difference! Woohoo!!! If you know someone who would still like to support the Childrens’ Medical Research Institute, it is not too late to donate. Thank you on behalf of all the kids, and all the bigger kids who are facing challenges and undergoing treatment.

    That's a wrap!!!

    Today was perfect weather for a long ride, so off to Devonport I took myself. I rode from Splash to Latrobe, via Spreyton, then along the bike path and streets to East Devonport. I then followed the bike path to Pardoe Beach, and rode to the end. Then it was back to East Devonport via the road, then the bike path back to Splash. 50.7k in perfect conditions - just a bit of headwind between Spreyton and Latrobe, then again on the beach. So relieved to finally get a big ride in, as the weather has not been ideal pretty much all month.
