I’m extremely proud and honoured to be a part of next week’s Soldier On Remembrance Ride 2014.
Over 22 April to 24 April 2014, I will participating in a fundraising/awareness raising ride to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Remembrance Driveway.
The Remembrance Driveway was created as a living memorial to those who served the nation from WWII and beyond and links Sydney and Canberra via the Hume and Federal Highways with a series of rest areas dedicated to the Victoria Cross recipients.
On 22 April, we will depart Sydney and arrive at the Australian War Memorial on the morning of 24 April in commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the Remembrance Driveway.
We will be riding over 230km in 3 days with an emphasis of fundraising and awareness raising for Soldier On along the way.
Donations to Soldier On can be made via the link below.
GoFundraise Remembrance Ride 2014 – Supporting Soldier On
Thank you for your support!
It’s been a fairly hectic month since my last Battle Of The Beasts update. I have spent plenty of time in the saddle training, managed a short trip to the snow at Perisher and managed to squeeze in a few cross-country races in and out of Canberra.
.:CORC XC Round 4 at Mt Stromlo (if you look closely you can see my mullet):.
The highlight for this past month has been the opportunity to travel to Dargle Farm for the JetBlack WSMTB 12 Hour with some of The Berm riders and Pedal4Pierce co-founder Nigel Jeffreys.
.:Soldier On at the JetBlack WSMTB Dargle Farm 12 Hour:.
Even though I DNF’d during my first 12 hour mountain bike race due to illness, I had the honour of representing Soldier On at a huge mountain biking event. There were a lot of questions from other riders, the event organisers and the Flow Magazine guys about Soldier On and why I ride for and fund-raise for them.
I’m also very excited to announce that the guys from Beast-Worx, the organisers of the Battle Of The Beasts; have invited me to compete in their next venture: The Call Of The Beast. The Call Of The Beast is Canberra’s/ACT’s first adventure obstacle race. I’m very excited to be a part of this and incredibly grateful that they are willing to support me in my fundraising for Soldier On. The Beast-Worx crew are staunch supporters of all Australian Veterans and Soldier On.
My training for the Battle Of The Beasts has been going well despite a bout of illness and a week of nil motivation to train. In the lead up to my Wedding I’ve decreased the amount of riding I have been doing but will increase the tempo dramatically in the weeks after and leading up to The Beast.
I’m very excited to announce that the crew from BEAST-WORX, the organisers of the Battle Of The Beasts, have invited me to compete in their next venture: THE CALL OF THE BEAST.
BEAST-WORX are unbelievable supporters of SOLDIER ON & all Australian veterans, which is why they run their adventure races. They have partnered with SOLDIER ON to bring you the best mountain biking/obstacle course/adventure races in Australia to raise money and awareness for SOLDIER ON.
The CALL OF THE BEAST is an obstacle course like no other. It is not for shirtless posers taking selfies covered in mud at the end of leisurely stroll with 4’000 other wannabes! This is an event that will test you physically, mentally and make you earn crossing that finish line!!
I’m extremely proud to announce that not only am I competing in the Battle Of The Beasts mountain bike festival in October I will be competing in the Call Of The Beast on November 30; racing for and raising money for SOLDIER ON!
PLEASE SUPPORT THOSE THAT SUPPORT YOU
