Riding 1000km's to change lives

My Activity Tracking


My target 1000 kms

I'm fundraising for a great cause!

I’m doing the JDRF One Ride to raise funds for type 1 diabetes! This means I will be riding from 29th Aug to 20th September alongside the world’s biggest cycling event in France. While I am challenging myself and competing against other cyclists, I am also raising funds to support research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 7 Australians are diagnosed every day. Diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy. JDRF is the largest funder of type 1 diabetes research in the world.

DONATE NOW to help change the lives of more than 120,000 Australians living with T1D. Thank you!

Hi everyone, what a great cause to ride for. Honestly, I couldn’t think of  any better way to utilise my cycling to something so important. 
My both parents and few mates battling with this disease.

I am keep sweating on my bike to help to raise funds to find cure for this disease.

Ride safe, ride life!
