I'm riding in Around the Bay 2018 to help kids in need!

And it's my goal is to raise $2600 through my ride to help these kids break the cycle of disadvantage.

In Australia, 1 in 7 Children are growing up in disadvantaged homes, where even the basics in life are hard to come by.

But supporting their education is the key to breaking the cycle of disadvantage.

So I'm going to give my personal best on the bike, so these kids can achieve their personal best in life!

Please support my ride! Your donation will give children in need essentials like school books, bags, uniforms, shoes and the help they need to keep up at school.

Not only will your donation help the kids but it will give me great motivation to keep pedalling on the big day!

Thanks for your support (and wish me luck!)

One month to go

One month to go to the big ride, and here's what I've learnt so far:
* You can't bunny hop a road bike..
* If you do, you lose your water bottle and it gets run over
* A two hour ride without a water bottle is not ideal
* the bike paths in rich surburbs are much nicer than the bike paths in poor suburbs
* I still can't navigate anywhere without GPS

210km with no experience - What could go wrong?

So, the guys at work are supporting the Smith Foundation with a casual 210km bike ride around the bay in Melbourne.

It's a fantastic cause helping disadvantaged children access better learning opportunities, so I thought "Sounds Great, Lock me in".

Having committed myself to an event with no real understanding of the pain required, I was quickly appraised of the situation when calling friends to see if they had a bike I could use for the event.

Those who didn't cycle just looked at me strangely and said "No Sorry". Those that did cycle laughed, asked if I was joking, then laughed again and said it's crazy.

I like to think they just haven't had their cup of concrete yet.

In any case, a ride like this is nothing compared to the challenges many children live through each day, so I'd love your support with a small donation. 

Many thanks in advance. I'm off to find some lycra.
