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.

Sylvia

My Challenge

  • Mandurah-Perth City-Gosnells.
    31 Oct 2020

    WOOHOO!! 😀I completed my LAST ride and achieved many goals! 👍I rode 114.10 kms in 6 hrs 6 mins from Mandurah-Perth City-Gosnells. 1st time riding over 86 kms & also this Mandurah route. 😊

    Weather perfect 25C with minimal wind.

    Yesterday evening I had a BIG bowl of spaghetti & this morning too, after my cereal, to ‘carb up’ before my marathon ride today. Amazing how this lasted with me the entire day, apart from a quick coffee stop.☕️

    I didn’t need a sandwich or protein bar.

    I’ve successfully completed the Great Cycle Challenge 2020 riding every day in October, unscathed and no punctures!!! 🥰

    I caught the train at 0556 from Gosnells-Perth & 0630 train to Mandurah and commenced cycling at 0740.

    A snake 🐍slithered across my path, no time to photograph. A fly flew into my mouth, but I spat it out before swallowing.😲

    A poor bloke had a puncture, so I stopped to chat and tell him that my tyre liner is excellent.

    I stopped to admire cute cygnets & ducklings.🦆🦆

    Max speed 36.6 km/hr. Avg 18.6 km/hr. Calories 3,884

    I’ve ridden a total 1,804 kms in October. In WA I’m placed 7th / 648 cyclists. National 71st / 23,223 cyclists.

    I’ve raised $3,653.91 for the benefit of the Children’s Medical Research Institute. I could NEVER have done this without YOU. In WA placed 20th and National 194th.

    Altogether an incredible 2,888,636 kms have been pedalled and $6,644,158 raised so far, to end childhood cancer. WOOHOO!!!!👏👏👏👏

    (final figure on Friday the 27th November)...

    A HUGE THANK YOU to ALL my sponsors who have been OUTSTANDING in their GENEROSITY. I feel humbled and overwhelmed by your kindness in helping fight kids' cancer.

    Thank you again. Very much appreciated.

    Love and friendship, Sylvia xoxoxoxo

    Nice and easy 20.64 km ride in 1hr 10 mins in 39C.

    I'm conserving my energy for tomorrow's last ride and it will be quite an adventure !!!! 😜

    Yesterday I forgot to mention a magpie whispered in my ear, that he is attracted to my bright jersey!😂

    Today the kids in the play area all came running over to talk to me, when I cycled past. I've returned so many of their toys and they recognise me now. So cute.🥰

    Another GCC cyclist chatted along side me after he had noticed my jersey, congratulating me on my fundraising.

    On the return journey home there were 2 kookaburra’s laughing 😂😂at me as I passed. I don’t know what was so funny, as I’ve worn this colourful outfit every day and no-one else has laughed !🤣

    WOOHOO!!! My goal 2 years ago was to cycle to Midland, but never got there, due to no cycle path. Today I had to ride part way on the road, but very aware of traffic and I rode with great care.

    Wearing a bright red jersey helped me to be seen!

    On return journey I stopped beside the Canning River and ate my sandwich whilst looking at birds catching a meal of various bugs 🦋🐞🐜🐛and a beautiful blue dragonfly.

    I gave chocolates to the King Eddies staff to help them through a busy shift ! Fantastic to see you.🥰

    Great to see so many GCC cyclists out. Waved and chatted to them.

    On the ride I saw 2 blue tongue lizards. 2 beautiful dolphins 🐬🐬in the Swan River under the Mt Henry Bridge.

    Before I left home I enjoyed a chicken & lettuce multigrain sandwich & coffee, which filled me up until I got to Helena Valley cafe and I really enjoyed a choc hedgehog & coffee! Yummy.😋

    I saw 2 cute Pukeko chicks and when I got near to them with my camera, they took one look at my bright red jersey and disappeared into the bush!🤣

    I’m getting nearer to my goal of cycling to Midland.

    I met a long Dugite snake on the path! 🐍I feel very sad knowing that my friend Sammie's beautiful dog Hachi has recently passed away due to a snake bite.😢

    Saw cute cygnets in the swan River. (Makes a change from ducklings)!😅

    Met my beautiful friend Daphne🥰at Eliz Quay for outdoor lunch & she treated me to a delicious coffee. I continued to King Eddies to visit the friendly staff, before returning home.

    Currently $5,895,215 has been raised to FIGHT KIDS’ CANCER! 👏

    I stopped to take photos of amazing reflections.

    I threw 3 balls and a hat over the fence in to the children's play area, much to the teachers pleasure. I also noticed a child’s toy on the footpath and united it with the owner further along, much to their delight!

    This morning I was really lacking energy, but after I’d collected my new jersey and purchased a bacon & egg muffin meal + coffee, this energised me perfectly, to get going!

    On the track at 8 am, before it reached 29 C.

    Farrington Rd I stopped to chat with a cyclist and her great friend is the owner of Bobbi’s Pole Studio! 🥰(Small world).

    Just beyond Canning Bridge all cyclists had to cross over the overpass, as the cycle path into the city is having line and cement work done. I visited a musical toilet and only allowed 10 mins in there!!!! 🤣 A pity, because the music was most enjoyable!!! 😅

    My peanut butter sandwich so delicious. Elite cyclists passed by when I was standing eating it and asked if I was OK. Fantastic comradeship with cyclists, all eager to help each other.👍

When I stopped at Mt Henry Bridge Reserve a sweet little lady ❤️with her walking frame chatted to me and opened her purse to give me what she had, $2 to help “Fight Kids Cancer”. I was SO overwhelmed by her most generous and selfless act of kindness, this really made my day extra special. 🥰She asked my age and she said “you are 3 years younger than me”! I felt so fortunate being able to still ride a bike!

  • Gosnells-Roe-Tonkin Hwys-Dunreath Dr (Parkview Chase) overlooking Costco Warehouse Perth Airport. Return to Whaleback golf course Parkwood and home. Gosnells-Hester Park return.
    4 Oct 2020

    Beautiful sunny day 12C when I left at 0815. Gosnells-Roe-Tonkin Hwys-Dunreath Dr (Parkview Chase) overlooking Costco Warehouse Perth Airport. Return to Whaleback golf course Parkwood and home. Gosnells-Hester Park return.

    I felt very chuffed when an elite cyclist turned his bike around to cycle alongside me to say “Awesome job”👍 “Well done”, referring to my jersey (raising $500). I told him with great delight that my “Hero” jersey is in the post ❤️and with the help of my generous sponsors I raised $2,500, but I have now raised $2,800 ❤️and on my way to reaching my $3,000 goal.

    Waved to by another GCC cyclist. 🚴‍♀️Close encounter with a speeding motorbike on cycle path ! ☹️A man called out "motorbike" when he heard it, so I was able to keep close in to the edge.

    A morning ride, as I had a lunch date with my hubby! 🥰

    All refueled and ready for another 20 kms this afternoon.

    Total ridden 74 kms in 4 hrs 32 mins. Max speed 33.20 km/hr. Avg speed 16.20 km/hr. Calories burnt 2,519.

    Brilliant ride in glorious sunshine 12C –17.5C to King’s Park via Roe Highway - Kwinana Freeway and return via Hester Park Nicholson Rd. SO many cyclists out today and 4 GCC cyclist's waved at me.

    I couldn’t help stopping to capture these cute duckling along the Canning River. I ate my sandwich whilst admiring the spectacular scenery of the City and Swan River and all the beauty of pretty wild flowers.

    How lucky we are to live here. Headwind 20km/hr on return journey making hard work! Cycled 82 kms in 5hrs 15 mins. Max speed 36.8 km/hr. Avg 15 km/hr. Calories burnt 2,789.41.

  • Gosnells-Thomas Rd return via Mills Rd East return-Maddington-home
    2 Oct 2020

    Problem getting my bike to go out in wet weather!!!! I was super enthusiastic, but my bike refused! With much coaxing it agreed and off we went dressed in wet weather gear from Gosnells -Thomas Rd, we were both looking out for snakes, but too miserable a day them. My bike retaliated going out in the rain, by running over Millipedes and tiny snails, much to my annoyance!!

    I found shelter from a tree to enjoy my cheese sandwich & bar. Onward to Mills Rd East and up a VERY steep hill. On the way down I reached a speed of 45.3 km/hr. Cycled along the old railway cycle path to Maddington and returned to Gosnells. 57.21 kms which took 3hrs 52 mins. Max speed 45.3 km/hr. Avg 14.7 km/hr. Calories burnt 1,945.92. Nice hot drink and hot shower, to warm up.

    A very pleasant 84.20 km ride for Day 1 of the Great Cycle Challenge. Thankfully no showers as forecast. Followed Canning River on cycle path to Roe Hwy and onto the Freeway and took photo overlooking the Old Swan Brewery. Return journey and rode further along Roe Hwy to Orrong Rd and home. Many cyclists out and a friendly wave to fellow GCC cyclist. Cheese sandwich and protein bar raised my blood sugar nicely. Calories used 2,863.98. Time in the saddle 5 hrs 22 mins. Max speed 33 km/hr. Avg 15.6 km/hr. I'll need my wet weather gear for tomorrow!!
