Please help us Fundraise

This Blog will keep you all up to date with our biking activities to fundraise for young people with cancer. Many of you, just like we, have had some experience with cancer that leaves us often traumatised and feeling helpless. So, Patrick and I decided to dedicate our hobby of riding the mountain bikes to make a change for those in need. Together with Life Cycle WA, we will ride four days on the Munda Biddi, please find more info in my posts.

Please help us to raise as much as possible. Dig deep, but don’t forget even the smallest amount will make a change in the big picture.

Please donate here via EverydayHeros or directly to Life Cycle WA or contact me for more options (a Tax receipt will be issued).

Thank you so much

Patrick & Sabine

Thank you everyone supporting us with kind and encouraging words, donations in any form including eating our chocolates and sausage sizzles and of course a huge thank you to everyone supporting Patrick – I really appreciate your help over the past months in every form it has come.

We have raised with you kind help $1044.00 – Thank you, you are amazing ☺ Together with all 56 participants and supporters, Life Cycle WA has raised over $42,000.00 in this event to hand to CanTeen ‘supporting young people with cancer’.

Thank you

 

 

 

Final Training Rides

Here is the plan!

Today and tomorrow will be only minor rides due to weather and Patrick’s cold, but from Wednesday we are back getting our final training rides in before we head off on Saturday morning before sunrise 😳.

On Wednesday we will take advantage of the weather and ride up to Perth. Come and meet us at Elizabeth Quai for some coffees or lunch before we take the train back home in the afternoon.

Planned arrival at Elizabeth Quai 11:30 am Wednesday 27/9

On Thursday we will be riding a smooth circle from Singleton along the freeway to Baldivis, from there to Safety Bay/Warnbro and back home again.

Planned arrival in Baldivis 10:00 am Thursday 28/9

Let me know if you are up to meeting us somewhere along the way, we can always stop and have nice break.

Last week’s training rides, 128 Km

Some impressions from our later afternoon rides, enjoying the sun set and hot chocolates and coffees at San Churros 😉. We made a total of 128 km over seven days 👋👋

Watch this place for our next rides. Last school week and first holiday week will hold some intense training for us 😂😂

Father’s Day Ride

With only a little breakfast, we left for a good 50 km ride to Rockingham foreshore. We took the scenic route where possible and had our first stop after 24 km for some coffees and Patrick’s favourite Tuna Panini at The Three Fat Ducks in Safety Bay.

From here we followed Safety Bay Road straight to the foreshore where Thomas and I had some lovely lunch – Patrick was still stuffed from his Panini 😂 The way back home seemed twice as long. From early lunch time some strong winds worked of course against us and our avarage speed dropped straight away from nearly 16 km/h down to just 13 km/h.

After 4:25 hours riding time and 3/4 of a day out, we arrived back home and had one happy chapper here crawling onto the couch with his iPad and enjoying the rest.

 

Here some statistics taken on my phone Cyclemeter

Weekend rides

After a good weekend with lots of casual bike riding, Saturday to Halls Head and back (31.8 km) to visit friends and Sunday to Mandurah and back for a breakfast get together at Dome Café (23.4 km), we are now off to train for the 70 km trainings ride on the Kep Track next Sunday.

The Kep Track is aligned to the Golden Pipeline Drive Trail and continues from Mundaring Weir to Kalgoorlie. http://trailswa.com.au/trails/kep-track/about#

The track is classified as a Grade 1 track so we shouldn’t have any problems other than the hours we will sit on the bikes. If we are lucky it might only be around 5 hours,😂 let’s see and hope.

Next week I will post some photos and share our experience 😉
