Help me support those doing it tough and through the work of Hope Street, to make their daily struggles that little bit easier.
Who are you in your professional life?
I am a Property Asset Manager with Baptist Care NSW/ACT. I help maintain our facilities so our residents and staff benefit from a facility that provides safe and loving care. Seeing smiles on the faces of our residents is what it is all about.
Who are you in your personal life?
I am a husband, father, musician, hiker and bike rider. I've always ridden a bike but it wasn't till about 8 years ago I decided my health needed to be a priority and riding has provided that. Cycling and Hiking has allowed my wife and I to see some amazing flora, fauna and scenery.
How/why are you involved in Chain Reaction?
I was introduced to Chain Reaction by the CEO of Baptist Care to help raise important funds for our Hope Street program.
BaptistCare Hope Street is committed to awareness and education that domestic violence is More than Skin Deep.

My Activity Tracking
My target 3500kms
Ticked over $6000 in sponsorship - A HUGE THANK YOUWith three days to go my sponsorship total has gone past $6,000 today (21st April 21) I was concerned my fundraising would be less than my goal of $5000. I would like to thank all those who have trusted me to ride the 1000kms raising funds for kids in need and especially BaptistCare HopeStreet. You all have given me a responsibility to do you and your sponsorship proud. Thank you again.
Last week begins Week beginning 19th April.
Week Beginning 12th April 2021
Week starting 6th AprilWell we are in April and training saw nearly 1000km's for the month of March. I have lost 6kgs and i have been seeing improvements in my fitness each ride. We are nearly at the starting line for this years challenge and i feel i am ready. A BIG THANK YOU to all my sponsors. The HopeStreet team are so happy you are supporting them and myself in the crazy endeavour. Share
Week beginning 22nd MarchThe weekend saw rain and flooding in the Sydney Basin not seen since the 60's and 70's. The indoor trainer got a good workout. I am constantly under 80kgs now which helps with any climbing. I have nearly reach 700 kms so far in March. I hope to get close to 1000 for the month. Hope the sun comes out and dries everything out.

Week Starting 15th March 2021Training continues - Weather was a lot better last week. I rode 222km's with a great ride to Bowral on Saturday. My weigh in yesterday showed i have lost 5.1kgs since December and i am finally under 80kgs - (79.6) Rain is predicted this week which means i am going to get wet again. Ah well. with over 450kms so far this month the KMS are building up nicely. Share
Week starting 8th MarchSince last update i have increased my training and have included some long walks to burn of some of that lactic acid build up in those legs. I am stable around the 80.5kg mark. Feeling really strong now in my fitness. 725km's ridden in February and 264km's so far in March. Share
Slow rest week - 15th February 2021Only 138km's this week. Will again build up this coming week. A couple of good long walks and some basketball down the park loosened up some sore joints. Feel good. Weight is still around 80.6kgs. Hopefully still would like to lose another 1 kg and get into the 79's. Here's hoping. Share
