I'm taking the Challenge to fight MS!
I am taking part in the MS Gong Ride Virtual, the Ride to Fight MS.
I start my challenge on 1 October. You will be able to see my progress here on my page and support me along the way!
Why am I doing this?
Well, I'm 65 years old and want to keep challenging myself. The last time I rode the Sydney to Gong ride was, I think, 1993 Twenty-seven (27) years later I reckon I'm still up for the challenge I have chosen - to ride the Gong distance (82 km) three (3) times during the month of October. Your support will spur me on for those 51.2 kms each week, for sure (total distance 234 km)
Why am I fundraising?
My daughter has been supporting this cause for several years now. Charlene has a personal connection with MS as a very good friend of hers has MS. So I guess I'm supporting my daughter in her cause, her friend (Lee) whom she cares for deeply, and all others like her who have to deal with MS ... every single moment of every single day.
Thank you for your support!

5th MS Gong Ride - the BIG oneSunday 25th Oct Wanting the challenge of emulating the usual one-day Sydney to Gong ride Colin and I opted to ride to Goulburn from Canberra in a single day. This we did on Sun 18 October, making pretty good time (5 hours). We stayed a night and then returned via a different route over a 2 day period (pretty smart, eh!).
4th MS Gong RideSunday 18th Oct Today Colin and I emulated the 90 km Sydney to Gong ride by riding from Canberra to Goulburn. 99.6 km were captured in Strava - though we actually rode a couple of kms more whilst we found our AirBnB for the night. We're pretty tired but stoked to have made the distance in 5 hours' riding time (actually 4 hrs 59 mins). Not a bad effort for two 60-somethings eh! 😊
