I'm challenging myself to cycle 500km between September 19 and October 9 including 210km on the gravel roads and trails of the northern Flinders Ranges.

I am so proud to be Sam's dad. Sam taught us so much in his short life, most importantly the importance of family and friends and supporting one another during challenging times.

Sam is always in my heart. I'll never forget his bravery, courage and beautiful smile. I miss him so much. 

We honour Sam through Cycle 4 Sam and Challenge 21. All donations to my page support Team Cycle 4 Sam and kids in SA battling rare life-limiting illnesses like Sam did.

Thank you so much for your support. Together you we hope to achieve our goal of raising $1,000,000 since 2006.

So far I have raised enough funds for*

1,023km's

of transport for vulnerable families to get to and from hospital

256 meals

for families experiencing financial hardship

75 sessions

with a Play Therapist to reduce stress and anxiety during their hospital stay

19 pumps

My Updates

Week 3 update Day 19

Friday 7th Oct
Thankfully a cool, cloudier day today for our 60km Mawson Trail adventure to Rawnsley Park and back. The trail was challenging in parts with a few dismounts required at times. For the most part the trail was smooth and incredibly scenic as it hugged the eastern edge of Wilpena Pound. Emus were plentiful and purple and white flowers flanked the trail for its majority. Stunning! 125km ridden on gravel now, 85km to go. Bunyeroo Gorge tomorrow. 💪🏼👊🚵‍♀️

Mawson Trail to Wilcolo Creek

Thursday 6th Oct

Week 3 update- Day 18

Thursday 6th Oct
Arrived Wilpena this afternoon, a warm 28 degrees. Set up camp and then did a Mawson Trail preview- a 10km loop out to Wilcolo Creek. Saw lots of emus and fields of purple Salvation Jane flowers amongst the rugged Flinders Ranges backdrop. Tomorrow our plan is to do a 70km loop south from Wilpena. To Rawnsley Park Station and Morlana Scenic Drive. Cannot wait 

Week 3 update- Day 17

Thursday 6th Oct
Arrived in Melrose on Tuesday afternoon in pouring rain. Fortunately the rain cleared and on Wednesday we rode the magnificent Melrose to Booleroo Centre Rail Trail (40km) followed by 15km of the Mawson Trail heading towards Laura. 355km completed, 145km to go to reach 500km in 3 weeks. Heading to Wilpena Pound today. Forecast is a warm 27 degrees. Cannot wait!
