“This was my first year participating in Mercer SuperCycle. I have never completed a multi-day event before and as a new cyclist I was encouraged and supported throughout the ride by all participants.
The ride was exceptionally well organised, with rider safety paramount at all times. The opportunity to ride long distances, through regional towns with support cars and volunteers ensuring your safety and managing the logistics is a highlight for me.
The best thing about Mercer SuperCycle is the cause. A visit to the Under Our Roof homes a day before the ride commenced and talk from a couple who have utilised the services, put everything in perspective. It is a privilege to be involved in some small part of this.
If I could say anything to someone considering doing the ride in 2018, I would tell them the training and fundraising obligations do require commitment, however are totally worth it. The Mercer SuperCycle experience was truly amazing! We forged lifelong memories and friendships and I would definitely recommend it.”
