Well, the timing is not great at all – having fractured my knee in two places on the 10th May, seven weeks out from the ride.
I am not going to let that dampen my enthusiasm. My son (Boyd) has agreed to ride with me to help me along. How is that, his first fundraising ride and he chooses a 750k ride – what a champion !
My wife (Wendy) and daughter (Marley) will be our support crew over the 750k ride, driving the camper trailer, setting up camp and providing Boyd and I with massages upon arrival each night (yeah right !!!).
In reality, my knee injury may mean that I have to take it very easy or miss some sections – but I am going to give it my best shot!
We need to raise $1,200 as a family entry – all money raised is going towards distance education costs for children in remote Australia.
Thanks very much,
John, Wendy, Boyd and Marley
