On behalf of your three beautiful daughters who, sadly, will grow up without knowing their wonderful father.

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.

My Challenge

  • Made it!
    28 Oct 2019

    I crossed the finish line today with an early morning ride around my neighbourhood along the coastal path to Brownlow and back home for breakfast (cooked of course). Gorgeous morning and a fine note to finish the challenge on. Looking forward to next year, and to maintaining the routine. Thanks to everyone who has supported me and bolstered my enthusiasm. I’m done!!

  • Less than 5 km to go!!
    28 Oct 2019

    Managed to add 6 more km today. Need to get out tomorrow and cycle 4 more to reach my 200 km target. It will be my last chance to ride before I go off-island.

    On impulse, buoyed by a recent flurry of donations from generous supporters, I have increased my fundraising target one last time to $1500.

    As this is probably my last blog, I will take this opportunity to thank every one of my wonderful, thoughtful sponsors for giving to the cause.

    On ya bike :)

    23 Oct 2019

    Only 10 ks to go till I reach my ride target. Good thing too as I have only 5 days left before I head off-island and travel up to Melrose for some BUG cycling. So glad I entered this challenge straight after coming home from my overseas bicycle tour. It has helped me keep pedaling :)

    So nice to be using the bike for short trips into Kingscote, riding along the coast and meandering around town in warm spring weather. So good to live on KI!

  • To the seaside
    17 Oct 2019

    Beautiful outing today to friends’ house overlooking the turquoise and blue waters of Emu Bay. They saw a whale there yesterday. The brisk headwind on the way out turned into delicious tailwind on the way home so we flew along at 20-25 km/hr, not much traffic, free as a bird, powered by coffee and cake. 28 km more to reach my target. Better start planning the next ride.

    I’m on the downhill run now, two-thirds of the way towards my ride target and once again able to increase my fundraising goal (to $1000) after some unexpectedly generous donations. Thank you to all my wonderful sponsors for making this possible.

    Have been off the bike for a couple of days but should add another 40 km to the ride tally on Thursday when I cycle out to Emu Bay and back for afternoon Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake) with friends. There are lots of benefits to this challenge!

    I got my cycling challenge off to a good start yesterday with a 44-kilometre KI BUG ride, all on unsealed roads (reckon that should count for double). Luckily, there was KI honey ice cream waiting at the end :)
