My Story

27 Jul 2018

This October, I am again 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.

  • Cadence Continues
    13 Oct 2019

    Got back from 14hr bread run. Bathurst race didnt start for another 90 minutes so treadley out and did a few laps around the area in the truck yellows.

    And the peanut felon knocked off my Herald Sun again. Only steals the Sunday edition so obviously after the TV guide. The ones at the nearby Maccas have probably already been stolen. Next week should wrap an old paper with a free gift - thank you woof.

  • Just kept going
    12 Oct 2019

    Got up at sparrows today to get in a few kms on the treadley with the aim of getting back before the felon knocks off my paper again then rest in front of Bathurst before heading off on the bread run.

    Well the 5-10km sort of got extended going around all the new estates here that I have never been into before, some of which I had no idea existed. Not many kms compared to the more seasoned riders in this challenge but a mega burst for an old dinosaur on a bike originally designed as a futuristic vehicle for a terradactor - yep I am getting that old according to the legs.

  • Achieving the Days for cadencing but only small kms
    11 Oct 2019

    Since getting out of hospital for the camera shoot up the bum and down the gullet I have managed to put rectum on saddle every day as targeted. Hopefully after the bread run this Saturday night and before the magazine run starting on Monday I will get to knock off a lot of kms towards the 500km target. Question is - how far can the cadence be maintained after 14 hours on the road. Time will tell the story of success or failure due to very red cheeks from the saddle.

  • First ride done
    2 Oct 2019

    Managed to put in at least one ride late this afternoon to do the post box run. Had to cheat using the e-bike given I had just got out of hospital after a tad bit of knockout gas and cameras run up the rectumus cavitus and down the gob. No hope of doing a ride on day one given the likely effects of that wonderful juice I had to drink before today. Would have been motion but definitely not poetry.
