WHY ARE YOU DOING THE RIDE?
I have been involved in cycling for many years having competed in my first race way back in 1978 as a Schoolboy in Scotland. My passion for cycling, for many years was focused on competition however now that have many grey hairs; my focus is cycling for fun; and to keep fit. Cycling is a great way to meet people; travel and have adventure. I became aware of the foundation through my children; who competed for the Veris team; I thought; what a way to support a local community while enjoying my passion; ride for a cause.
This is now my 4th year supporting the event; from sponsorship through to personal involvement building bikes for the kids in Laverton. This year I intend to complete the full ride; and continue to build the relationship and support for the Laverton community.
