  • Last Day Off GCC 2020!
    31 Oct 2020

    Firstly well done to all of you on the amazing effort you have put this October. The Mackay Phat Spokes have done an incredible job but I am sure you are all aware of that. If not have a look at the team leaderboards and you will see!

    Last ride for a few of you was the Corry Bunch Ride this morning and good to see plenty of GCC jerseys. Big shout out to Evan Corry for shouting the bar at the end. The coffee was great and much appreciated.

    Hope to see you all next year.

    Give your legs a break you have earnt it.

    28 Oct 2020

    Don't forget we are finishing the challenge with a bang this Saturday. Heading out with the Corry Bunch Ride...5:30am from the shop. Stop for a coffee and a chat afterwards.

    Don't forget your GCC jersey.

    Well done to all with the amazing job we have done. Check out the Chapters link and sort by state. The Mackay chapter is punching well above our weight. This includes all riders from Mackay!

  • Heading into the last week!
    24 Oct 2020

    Hi all the last week is upon us so don’t take your foot off the pedal unless you are stopping.

    Send out reminders to everyone as some people may have just forgotten, let them know you need donations by the end of the month. Seeing as we had achieved our goals I have given them a bump up to challenge us. Apparently this is called the Great Cycle Challenge!

    Great ride today from Mackay Cycles and next Saturday is Corrys.

    So come along in your GCC kit if you have a jersey.

    Johnny Schonney is so close to getting another Hero Jersey so give him a hand if you can. He tells me all the girls love his spider man jersey he can only imagine how they will react to his Wonder Woman jersey.

    Heading into the last week!

    Great work with the fundraising. I see a lot of you made use of the kick cancers butt day and got some great donations and when combined with the corporates bonus $’s our team total. Don’t let up though. There will be people out there wanting to donate but have forgotten, so keep reminding them.

    Get onto the great cycle challenge Facebook page and share the posts so your friends can see why you are riding.

    We are doing some serious km’s so keep it up. Push yourself and see what you can achieve.

    Good to see a few GCC jersies getting around so give each other the thumbs up for a job well done.

  • Phat Spokes Update
    10 Oct 2020

    Wow big effort today people, we rode a total of 881km between us. The donations are hard work but keep up the effort. Send emails, post on facebook, pass the hat around at work annoy your neighbours.

    This Wednesday (14/10/20) is kick cancer's butt day and any donations made on that day will be matched by the charity's corporate sponsor. So try and get people to donate ON THAT DAY to get the best bang for your buck. If you were going to make a donation yourself than that is the day to do it!

    Keep up the good work!

  • River To Reef Ride 2020
    10 Sep 2020

    If you aren't wearing a River to Reef Jersey this Saturday and you have a GCC jersey it would be good to see a few getting around on Saturday. If you see one say g'day.

    Well done to all of you who have already received donations. Nearly time to ramp up the fundraising and the Km's.

    If you are riding this Saturday enjoy yourself and stay upright!

  • Welcome New and Old Riders
    25 Aug 2020

    Hi all just a quick thank you to everyone who has signed up this year hopefully we can raise some serious dollars for kids cancer research.

    Just a little tip when it comes to fundraising....every year the GCC corporate sponsor matches all donations received but it is for one day only so hang back and wait for that day. It makes your hard earned funds go so much further!

    We will try and organise some social rides this year (Covid permitting) and have some fun whilst riding for such a worthy cause.

    This October, Mackay Old Spokes is 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 we are 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 our challenge by making a donation through our fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Together, we can save little lives.

    Thanks for your support.
