Riding 1000km's to change lives

My Activity Tracking

kms

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 (T1D) research! This means I will be riding from 1st to 30th September 2021 to achieve my KM target while competing against other cyclists across Australia. I will be starting after the Paralympic Games so will have some catching up to do. However will clock up a few KM’s in quarantine!

This year is particularly significant for the T1D community as it marks 100 years since the discovery of insulin. Despite many advances in the past century, insulin remains the only treatment option for people living with type 1 diabetes. This means the needles, injections, finger pricks, bulky devices and constant monitoring remain a part of everyday life for anyone living with this condition. 

JDRF is the largest funder of T1D research in the world and believes we shouldn't have to wait another 100 years for the next major breakthrough.

DONATE NOW to support me so we can help change the lives of kids like Liam and more than 125,000 Australians living with T1D.

Let’s make type 1 diabetes a memory, not a milestone. Thank you!

Tokyo & Quarantine Ride

Friday 10th Sep
Hi, little update on how September is going so and my ride progress.  I started by being in Tokyo at the Paralympic Games. I managed to get a few rides in on our new Team Concept Bikes and now I am in Sydney Quarantine on a spin bike. So far getting in two sessions a day for about 90ish Km's.  Will keep you posted on progress.

Thank you to my Sponsors
