Ride: Melbourne to Cairns
Hi family & friends!
You’ve found my Steer North donation page, so you’re already in the right place.
In December of this year, I will be embarking on the longest annual charity bike ride in the Southern Hemisphere: a 4,000 km cycling journey from Melbourne to Cairns with Steer North.
Steer North is an amazing not-for-profit organisation. It’s goal is to advance public health by engaging with communities across Australia through cycling based events. Throughout the ride we’ll be engaging with people from different backgrounds, through a range of fun and educational activities, with the aim of inspiring and empowering healthy and purposeful living.
Since arriving in Australia in 2013, cycling has become a real passion (read: obsession). Through cycling, I’ve met amazing people and explored parts of the country I never knew existed. I’m extremely excited about sharing my passion. If I can convince just one person to give cycling a go – and experience the benefits that come with it – I’ll be stoked.
I would love your support as I take on this challenge! As a group, we will be riding 100km+ a day (no mean feat) for 45 days. I am hoping to blog / vlog about my journey (mainly so that my UK-based friends can see what they’re missing out on). You will also be able to follow the ride on Facebook and Instagram. If you have any questions, or just want to talk about life, love and bikes, reach out!
All funds raised from the Steer North Melbourne to Cairns Ride will benefit the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC). The world-leading doctors, researchers, scientists, clinicians and nurses at the VCCC will use our funds to support cancer research, education and patient care. It really is a great cause, and contributing to their work is a huge part of why I wanted to get involved in the first place.
Thank you in advance for your generous gift!
