Join me on the Ride for Hope 2014


Looking for a cycling challenge that will help a great cause?

In 2009, seven Perth cyclists pedalled on a fund raising journey from Perth to Albany in Western Australia, a distance of over 500 kilometres.

After the success of the event, plans were made for a ride from Albany to Perth in 2010. That year eleven cyclists took to the roads.

So far five rides have taken place with the 2013 ride involving 21 cyclists and a support crew of 8.

In 2014 the Ride for Hope is on again, running from the 18th to the 25th of October. This year participants will be able to choose to support either SIMaid’s Girls off the Streets or Compassion Australia.

I’ll be riding for Compassion as I seek to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

We’re currently looking for cyclists and support crew. If you’re interested just head to the website for more details. Registrations close soon so …. get to it.
