I'm Riding For

Sjaan van de Kraan

Sjaan van de Kraan

September 19, 2019 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

30 Sep 2021

Every year I ride for kids cancer - 8 years and still going. My challenge this year is hard to decide with all this lockdown stuff. I am limited to riding 5 kms from home or within my local government area which does not quite stretch 10 kms in any direction. So far this lockdown I have been doing an orchid a day - more walking than cycling. Not sure the orchids will hang on that well into October.

Maybe there will be a chance to do a tour later. With that in mind I will use October as a training month - one hill a day for the first week four days a week, then stepping up to 2 hills then 3 hills then 4 hills. Maybe end with a gran fondo in the last week or at least 100 kms

Be warned I might not take a tape measure with me across the fluoro yellow line

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.
