So what exactly is EMMETT?

As Emmett Therapists we get asked many, many questions.

The most asked would have to be: So what exactly is EMMETT?

Simply, EMMETT stands for “Easy Muscle Management Release Therapy”.

Where your muscles become tight and sore after hours on a bike, we do gentle non-invasive moves to get those stubborn bits to release and relax.

All cyclists, either road or off-road riders know they’re going to develop aches and pains in hands, arms, legs, feet, back, shoulders, neck and most definitely your butt after hours in the saddle.

This is where the Emmett Angels steps in to help.

We’ll use quick, effective moves to get you back on your bicycle to continue your C2K adventure to Karumba.

The beauty of this technique is we treat riders, sitting, standing or lying to work our magic on your tender bits and pieces.  During this year’s ride, look out for us.

You can’t miss us with our distinctive Emmett Technique shirts and our EMMETT Chameleon visors.

We are so excited to be part of this amazing ride, our third year volunteering our time and hands to help you, the riders make it to Karumba.

It’s a gruelling undertaking riding over 780km’s and we look forward to providing muscle release and pain relief to see every rider achieve their goal to ride into Karumba in one piece.

Over the next few months we will introduce our awesome team of therapists and let you know how we can help you reach your goal of riding all the way from Cairns to Karumba.

Councillor Richie Bates swaps the Cycledrome for C2K

It’s been quite a few years since I’ve challenged myself with a long road ride.  Being primarily a track cyclist I spend most of my time riding in circles. And while I do enjoy being on the velodrome, the lure of Cairns to Karumba has always been simmering on the back burner.

I’ve come close to making the commitment before: whimsical thoughts after a few beers and encouragement from friends, but each time finding an excuse to keep the bike in the rack.

Anyway I’ve finally signed up and I’m looking forward to the wide open road of the Gulf Savannah as opposed to the confines of Smith Park Cycledrome in Manunda.

Just as importantly, it will also be the camaraderie and the cause in helping bush kids that delivers satisfaction and a sense of achievement.

There is no better place to form new bonds and friendships that on two wheels in the outback!
