Crazy, having worked with big and little kids for most of my working life, I know how worthy a cause it is. In fact I still do quite a bit for the SIDS charity.
So let me wish everyone involved the very best. It's a long way, but I'm sure that you'll all have a great time...and sore derrieres :))))))))
Good luck.

Best wishes for your ride Crazy. Helping Bush Kids is a great cause and you'll have some fun along the way. I know all about the joys of bike riding as I ride a road pad up!! In October I'm doing Around The Bay in a Day (Melbourne) which raises money for the Smith Family Foundation. Going out to do some much needed training tomorrow.

Happy pedalling...wishing you tail winds all the way...

You guy's don't think I'd be riding a bike do ya!---nah! - I driver one of 2 drinks vehicles. 1st up in the morning - last to bed every nite and we set the stops for the whole ride...every 20ks....leap frogging each other for nearly 800ks.

Now don't go jumping to conclusions (although you would be partially correct) because we set up every 20ks and give the real heroes (the bike riders) their drinkies in the form of water and poweraide.

We also provide fresh fruit, nut, figs etc as well as lollies to give them energy.

It is busy 6 days on the road for us but a labour of love.

Like I said in the original post - check out the link and thanks to all.....

Speaking from experience the support crews on these rides do a marvellous good on ya!!! Just got back from struggling with the head winds ... I'm sure I'll feel good about it all in an hour or so...

Have a great time and congratulations to all those who take part in a ride for a worthy cause. Would love to do that ride one day.
