Hassan, Jens & Gerd & Jenny Busse and Leni Kubitza

Dedicating all our rides to everyone currently fighting cancer, and all who’ve gained their wings: You are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. This October, we’ll be riding for you!

My Story

26 Sep 2020

This will be my 8th year of riding in the Great Cycle Challenge and of course, my daughter Mariam is on board with me once again.

This is Mariam’s 6th year of participating, but this time, she’s dedicating all her rides to Hassan who has passed away from cancer earlier this year to honour his life lost and legacy.

CANCER is STILL the LARGEST SINGLE KILLER OF CHILDREN from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and 3 die EVERY WEEK.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

We’re passionate to continue riding to keep hope alive by supporting the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their incredible work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and ultimately finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support our challenge by DONATING ON THIS fundraising page to give these kids, their families and friends, the brighter futures they all deserve.

TOGETHER, we can save little lives.

    18 Sep 2020

    to venture back out into nature and ride off road again. Not much fun riding the same inner-suburb trails all the time but at least, it’s spring time, so Mother Nature puts on a colour show for us while passing by.

    8 Aug 2020

    Finally dusted off my bike after 2.5 weeks of home quarantine.

    Paused the app in between and forgot to put it back on, so it was actually about 20k’s today.

    A good start and within my 1 hour of allowed exercise 👍🏻.
