    Default Conquer Cancer Bike Ride - Sydney Oct 13-14, 2012

    Hi Everyone,

    Is anyone else doing any of the Conquer Cancer rides this year? I just registered for the Sydney one - 200km in two days.

    My goal is to raise (at least) the minimum $2,500
    which will benefit the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse at RPA, a centre of excellence for early detection, better treatment and integrated cancer care with the best diagnostics, therapeutic applications and scientific research.

    It will be a busy time - in addition to greatly lifting my training, I will be sacrificing going to the Bathurst races the weekend prior to the ride, and somehow fitting in study for two Uni exams I have the day after the ride! Somehere, somehow, there may even be shed time between all of those.

    If any body would like to donate towards my ride, please let me know, and I will forward on the details - every bit counts, and I will peddle for you!

    Regards,
    Nathan.

    Good on you Nathan. My daughter runs for CanToo- marathons would you believe? Maybe I'll need to get my act together about this one.
    Thanks for the post.

    Hello Graham,

    I have fallen off the wagon big time - both shed and cycling time.

    I had to pull out of this (thankfully before anyone sponsored me) because a mate is getting married on the Saturday of the ride. Both uni and work have been crazy and up until two weeks ago I had only done 200km on the bike all year . I went on a 30km ride two weeks ago which nearly killed me!

    This Uni semester finishes up this week, and I'm taking the next semester off to spend quality time in the shed and on the bike. I'm not sure that I have enough time to lift my fitness to do the Sydney to Gong ride.

    Cheers,
    Nathan.

    You're missing out on a great ride Nathan. I did the Brisbane ride in August this year and it was a buzz. Ive already signed up for next years ride.
