A decade ago, I heard about these guys who wanted to ride around SA on a bike for a week doing 1000km. I thought that sound ok, so I bought a road bike and started training. Now I’m turning up for my 7th ride.
The cause is a great idea to help people who are dealing with cancer and have the additional issues of travel to Adelaide for treatment. We all have been touched in one way or another by someone with cancer so I can sympathise with anyone who is battling to get well.
While doing this ride I have made great friends and have discovered I really enjoy riding a bike. I get to catch up with comrades each year, ride my bike and feel good about helping others. Then to cap it off I get to have a holiday riding around the best place to live in the world being treated like royalty.
