A GREAT RIDE FOR A GREAT CAUSE...

I'm riding in Around the Bay 2019 to help kids in need!

Because 1 in 6 Australian kids are growing up in disadvantaged homes, where even the basics in life are hard to come by. But by supporting their education, they can break this cycle of disadvantage.

Your donation will give these kids the essentials they might otherwise miss out on like school books, bags, uniforms, shoes and the help they need to keep up at school. Its a great cause!

Plus, your support will give me great motivation to keep pedaling in training and on the big day!

Thanks for your help and don't forget to leave your message of 'encouragement' when you donate :)

A week of mixed emotions

What a week of mixed emotions (although Marie might argue that I don’t have any to get mixed up ?);

  • On the one hand – AWESOME support provided for The Smith Family from my AWESOME sponsors;
  • On the other hand – a HORRID Amy’s Gran Fondo ride yesterday.

 

Thanks to all my sponsors so far; Rob & Bea, AB, Emily, Michel, Fed, Di, Claire, Calvin, John, a couple of anonymous peeps and of course Mum & Dad!

Your generous support has put $1138 in the hands of The Smith family to support disadvantaged kids around Australia.

 

I try and do two ‘event’ rides each Spring – Around the Bay for The Smith Family, and a few weeks beforehand – the Amy Gillet Gran Fondo for my own enjoyment.

 

Well, while yesterday started out nicely enough, the weather turned a lot earlier than forecast and it rained for the majority of the ride.. What a pooper Zeus is!

The rain made the ride cold and slippery – taking all the fun out of the decent to Skenes Creek.

With cold induced cramps looking like they might force an early withdrawal, the sun came out and saved me for the last 30km and we finished the ride in 4hrs 54min of rolling time ?

Supporting the Smith Family - because they're awesome!

I'm saddling-up for Around The Bay again this year. Its a great excuse to get up early on cold and windy wintery Sunday mornings and spend 3-4 hours out in the elements instead of being curled-up under a warm, fluffy doona - NOT.

But seriously - I'm doing it again because its an opportunity for me to make a small contribution to the awesome work of The Smith Family. 

Every year, The Smith Family uses Around The Bay to raise funds used in support disadvantaged kids across Australia - providing book packs, uniforms, sports equipment, reading buddies and education sponsorships to break the cycle of disadvantage.

So help me help them - dig deep and sponsor me for another year of riding 200km Around The Bay.

It will make you feel good, it will motivate me AND it will help disadvantaged kids! Awesome!
