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 and plan to ride 1286 km - the distance from Adelaide to Wollongong - during the month. You will be able to see my progress here on my page and support me along the way!
Why am I fundraising?
It’s quite staggering to think that multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition. It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely.
For instance, can you imagine waking up one day unable to do the everyday things you would usually take for granted? Like not being able to see properly (or at all), you physically can’t get out of bed, can’t walk to the phone to call someone – anyone – or live a life without pain?
All of a sudden, your world has changed.
Thanks to your generous support, the funds we raise will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to access vital MS support services. Support to keep Aussies living with multiple sclerosis connected to others and connected to the information and services they need to live their best life.
Thank you again for your support!

Day 6 half centuryTuesday 6th Oct Did 50km today which if I was actually in Australia would see me riding from Monash to Lindsay Point or in the middle of nowhere on the Sturt Highway! I actually had a much easier ride out to the north of Singapore island and completed a Mandai Loop
Day 5 Still on trackTuesday 6th Oct Managed another 48 km today split over 2 rides - 31 km loop this morning and another 17 km this evening staying pretty close to home. With 238 km under my belt, if this was a real, instead of a virtual ride, from Adelaide I would be in Monash instead of back home in Singapore!
Day 4 Rest daySunday 4th Oct A hike, some reading and a couple of glasses of red later will wrap week one up nicely
Day 3Saturday 3rd Oct

Day 2Friday 2nd Oct
Day 2 Adelaide to WollongongFriday 2nd Oct A fantastic day for riding ... warm, dry, breeze and in spite the weather forecast saying humidity was 91% it didn’t feel like it. It is one of those days you feel you could just keep going!
Day 1Friday 2nd Oct
Day One Adelaide to WollongongThursday 1st Oct So my ride started with a gentle 42km loop around the Western part of Singapore. Mostly dry and surprisingly cool this morning although I did get drenched in a downpour during the last 30 mins of the ride.
