I'm riding 250 km to be a champion for children

The J Team

Thousands of Australian children are living at risk of abuse and violence in their homes.They deserve a champion. 

That’s why my family, Marty, Simmo, Kai and Paige aka The J Team are taking on The Champions Ride, so that Barnardos Australia can replace fear and danger with freedom and safety.

We will be putting pedal to the metal and cycling during October, to raise money to help protect kids at risk.

Please support us by making a tax-deductible donation to Barnardos Australia. Together we can be champions for a safe childhood.

My Updates

Yay we did it! Last ride done and dusted!

Saturday 30th Oct
Today has been a big day of riding. Kai and I did a quick ride just before lunch (as we still had a few kms to go) and then after lunch the four of us set of for our last ride for this challenge. A big thank you to those who have supported us. It's been really fun as a family taking on this challenge and the best part is that we are making a difference in the lives of vulnerable children.

Friday doughnuts and milkshakes

Friday 22nd Oct
We have been a bit distracted with family and friend catchups and have not done a lot of riding over the last week and a bit so this afternoon bribed the kids with a ride for doughnuts and milkshakes.

Weekend fam ride

Saturday 9th Oct
The kids are loving being able to ride more. 

Long weekend Monday

Tuesday 5th Oct
The kids are really enjoying this challenge and wanted to do another long ride. So we decided to ride from our house in Springwood down to Glenbrook. Whilst all down hill this was still a long ride for Paige who just turned 7. This is the most they have ever ridden over the last few days and I'm very proud of them for getting out there and doing this challenge with me.

Sunday Ride

Sunday 3rd Oct
Today it was just Kai and Paige who were riding while I did my Sunday run. A nice easy ride that starts with a 1.5k up hill and then all downhill from there. Springwood to Warrimoo oval.

Saturday Short ride

Saturday 2nd Oct
Today was expected to rain all afternoon so we thought just a short ride today to our local oval with some friends to kick a ball and then ride home again. The four of us rode a total of 32.92km (8.23km x 4). not a bad start for the challenge :)
