Hello everyone and a happy new year to those I haven't caught up with yet.
It's official.... I have signed up for the Pipeline Challenge in May for 2018 and now I need your support to help me cross that finish line!
the what ...
What's the Pipeline Challenge I hear you ask .... well quite simply it is a 625k mountain bike ride from Kalgoorlie to Mundaring in Western Australia, completed in 5 days. I am sure it will be tough and the organisers tell you to bring spare parts!! So it's going to be an awesome ride :) http://www.pipelinechallenge.com.au
Over the last few months I have been riding around my urban jungle (pavement and cycle paths around the city) buildng up a kilometre per day base. And for the next 3 weeks I will be stepping it up a notch into full cycle mode as I prepare myself as best I can to tackle the pipeline.
For me, this will be a huge physical and mental endurance test with long days of riding, the second day being the longest at 180k!!!
the why ...
This challenge I have set myself pales in comparison to issues that some of our youth face today. There are currently 6000 young people without a home in WA. And I am hoping to raise a few dollars to help Youth Futures continue their wonderful work. The Youth Futures' Nest program, provides accommodation and support to teen parents experiencing homelessness and domestic violence.

The Pipeline Challenge is a five day mountain bike adventure that takes riders on an epic journey from Kalgoorlie to Perth, all for a good cause of course!
Together we can raise much needed funds for Youth Futures' Nest program, which provide accommodation and support to teen parents experiencing homelessness and domestic violence.
