My Story

In March I will be participating the Indian Pacific Wheel Ride (IPWR) and I want this challenge to be more than just me and my goals, I want it to have a lasting impact. So I am choosing to use my participation in the IPWR to support Mates4Mates. Our 'Mates' are the wounded, injured or ill current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force personnel. Our Mates deserve support as they continue the journey of rebuilding their lives. So please if you want to show your support for this challenge please consider making a small donation to Mates4Mates.

About the ride:
On 17 MAR a band of intrepid riders will undertake a ride from Fremantle to Sydney, a total of 5500kms, it is totally unsupported, meaning riders carry everything they need (including water). For three weeks riders will do 300- 400k a day, starting long before the sun rises and well into night, grabbing a few hours’ sleep along the roadside before doing it all again the next day. Food is whatever you can buy from the local roadhouse and a shower is a luxury you might see every third or fourth day. It is a ride of extremes, it starts with the desolate flats of the Nullarbor where temperatures can reach 45 degrees and ends with the riders having to go up and over the Great Divide twice. This is truly a challenge in every sense, mentally, physically and logistically.

For those interested in following the ride, you can view my progress and that of the other riders at
