WHY ARE YOU DOING THE RIDE?
Truth be told, I cannot come up with a valid reason not to take part.
But, there is no single, specific reason driving my lunacy in agreeing to this endeavour! I am blessed to have a fabulous family and team of employees (my 2nd family) and live a comfortable but simple life. I would love to know more (a lot more) about the indigenous culture, the land and the connection between. I feel ignorant, and somewhat embarrassed, by my lack of knowledge of the people and places in our own back yard. It’s time I learned a little, and gave back something too. That would be a large part of my reasons for this commitment.
Of course, there is also the challenge of becoming the healthiest I can be. I embarked upon a personal transformation a few years ago now, mainly using cycling and a no carb diet. I feel so much more alive and focused! Not to mention being nearly 30kgs lighter…
Committing to a challenge such as this will further enhance my physical fitness and at the same time, provide a mental challenge that is unlike anything else I have ever attempted.
