My target 0kms

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

And it's my goal is to raise $1500 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!)


My Activity Tracking

The activity relates to downhill downhill skiing kms this year.  Superb ski season.  

I haven't been on my road bike this year.

Plan B ... C .... D .... E

Well in "all walks of life" we need a Plan A but have up our sleeve alternatives.....  Hope you enjoy the funny side of the following:

My Plan A was to not leave Australia pre the ride. 

Next Plan B was put in place, since I wanted to support my good wife and daughter in Thailand pre the ride, however my Plan B had a scheduling error.

Next Plan C was then developed to join my wife on her return trip to Oz in time for the ride. However, Plan C had an engineering problem and the aircraft was delayed.

Next Plan D became a lifeline to arrive at at Melbourne Airport at 8AM Sunday and then get to the start line as early as practical with event organisers knowledge.

Well Plan E came into place after discussion with the event organisers at 10:45AM Sunday and there concerns about my very late start. I then decided since I was now some four hours behind all other riders, I would now ride home (9km), pick up Miki Card, ride to Ormond Station (3KM, Frankston via train and then tackle 50km return leg ride. 

Enjoy      coolcoolcool
