2023 Melbourne 7 Day Challenge

My Updates

Kinglake, 140km in the rain

Tough gig today with 2000m elevation to Kinglake and a very wet start of the day!

Albert Park Lake - 6am

Beautiful morning on Albert Park Lake this morning! A few hot laps to ease into the day...

Back to serious training today

The hills of Mt Eliza were on the menu for my come back to the Chain Reaction training today - 102km with Matt, Rob, Damian and Simon. Thanks guys, such a nice day for it!

Help me support kids in need!

Ageing legs, a new bike and a big challenge! In March 2023 I will be riding 1000km on the beautiful South Island of New Zealand to raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation of the Monash Hospital in Melbourne. For over 30 years, Starlight has worked in partnership with health professionals to bring fun, joy and laughter that help sick kids be kids. I would really appreciate your generosity in supporting this cause. Every contribution will give me energy to face this challenge on the year I will turn 50! 

Thank You To My Donors
