Great Ocean Road 2013


A week ago I was in the middle of the amazing experience of cycling the 25000Spins Great Ocean Road Challenge. The ride raised money for ADRACompassion andBotswana Orphan Project.

My chosen charity was Compassion and I’m extremely grateful for everyone who donated and helped me release children from poverty. We had about 60 riders who each cycled around 290 kilometres and battled some serious hills over three days.

It’s not too late to contribute. You can still donate online right now by going to my fundraising page. By sponsoring my efforts on the challenge you’ll be releasing children from poverty. You’ll be giving children a real chance at life.

Last Tuesday, once the three days of riding were over, I spoke by phone to Kieran Johnson who was hosting my radio program while I was away. Have a listen to our conversation by clicking the play button on the audio player below and find out more about the ride and difference it’ll make.
