break the poverty cycle by educating kids in poverty

For the third year in a row (after months of training last year's Tasmanian challenge became a victim of COVID with 5 days to go!) I am challenging myself to ride 1000 KMs in 7 days to raise much needed funds for the great work of So They Can empowering children living in poverty n Africa through education.

In 2019 I rode from Melbourne to Sydney via the Snowy's and it was an inspiring experience. This year to minimize the risk of another COVID cancellation, we are staying in NSW and riding from Coffs Harbour to Sydney via the hinterland searching out climbs with a view to testing ourselves with 15000 vertical meters of climbing in the 7 days. 

Your support would be much appreciated 

Best wishes, 


Thank You To My Donors
