September 19 would have been Sjaan’s 80th birthday. She did not quite make it. She loved music and flowers and visits to Australia. My rides will be punctuated with pictures of Australia and flowers. Make music the way you always did

My Story

27 Sep 2019

Every year I ride for kids cancer - 6 years and still going. My challenge this year is taking shape. I have one small section of the East Coast of Australia not yet ridden. This will complete a circumnavigation of Australia ridden in stages since 2002.

I did a little more planning and some bookings. I travel to Rockhampton on October 8 and will cycle south via an inland route to Gold Coast. That completes my circle of Australia as I did the Top End ride from Rockhampton to Darwin in 2009. All in all that trip will be a little over 1,000 kms.

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.

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.

  • 2019 Challenge
    2 Aug 2019

    Every year I ride for kids cancer - 6 years and still going.

    My challenge this year is taking shape. I have one small section of the East Coast of Australia not yet ridden. This will complete a circumnavigation of Australia ridden in stages since 2002.

    Broad idea is to ride that segment as part of the 2019 challenge - more likely ridden in part or in whole before October (before it gets hot).

    The words are Cooktown in Far North Queensland to Coolangatta (where Gold Coast Airport is). The numbers are roughly 2000 kms. That is as much planning as I have done.
