Riding the Tour de Cure

Tour de Cure

Tour de Cure

In a fit of insanity I have signed up for the challenge of the Tour de Cure in Australia. This involves cycling 425km in three days over a course that has 5km of climbs. That height change equates to over 1500 flights of stairs!

I know cycling is a classic MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra) activity but when it’s for a good cause how can you say no. I will be riding for the CAN4CANCER team which raised nearly 2 million dollars last year.

The main reason for doing this is to raise money to help those affected by cancer and to sponsor research to help cure this awful disease. Cancer has taken my Auntie Janie, two of my grandparents and is currently affecting an extended family member so it is all too personal.
