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 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!

Slack riding week

Saturday 24th Oct
Been a bit slack on the riding front this week only knocked off 60 odd kms, but have had plenty of kitesurfing and motorsports activities to suck up all my energy. Looks like the last week will be a bit full on to make up the remaining  130 kms. Plenty of rain so might end up in the gym on the indoor bikes. Not as much fun but hopefully drier.

Just over half distance

Wednesday 14th Oct
Went past the halfway mark today. Pretty pleased about that. Days are starting to get hotter so early morning rides it is. Nice ride this morning heading to Church Point. Shame about the 10 knot southerly all the way back to DY. 

Off and riding

Thursday 1st Oct
Hit the road riding today just to get some kms on the board. It was hot, damn hot. Probably won’t do so many midday rides at this time of year. But good to get out there.
