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

6 May 2020

Every year I ride for kids cancer - 7 years and still going. My challenge this year is taking shape. In 2019, I completed my circumnavigation of Australia ridden in stages since 2002. People look at the map and tell me I have not done it right as there is a gap from Melbourne to Bermagui. I did Bermagui to Sydney in 2015.

So the plan for this October is to close that gap - Melbourne to Bermagui (maybe more). I will follow a route planned by my friends at Cycle Across Oz - they were to run a tour this year but it got postponed by Covid-19 stuff. I will be testing it out.

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.
