I'm Riding For

Wayne

This year, not only am I riding for my brother who is still not out of the woods with his cancer but also for myself. Back in February I was involved in a serious cycling accident, which saw me spend time in ICU due to my injuries. Therefore, for 2019 anyway, I will be doing the challenge using a trainer to chase down the kms I have set myself. So please help me raise funds to kick kids' cancer.

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.

    It felt like I was riding in a sauna, not a breath of air. I think I either need to invest in a fan or an air conditioner.

    A quick ride along the coast before heading to the hills. Cycling in the virtual world makes it seem all too easy but it's not always. Gotta love it though. And that's 250kms done & dusted in 5 days, wow.

    That's the thing about riding on a trainer, virtual riding can take you anywhere in the world and all for free. From the Nederlands to Vegas without leaving home.

    I'm sure that trainer rides are harder than riding outdoors. But then again, we are doing this for the kids' who are fighting cancer. So I shouldn't complain, their pain is most likely greater than mine even after my accident.
