Cycle Against the Beast – just over half a day to go!

Tomorrow (the 20th of May), I start my bicycle ride, from Sydney to Melbourne, in support of the Cure for MND Foundation. Roughly 1250km of fantastic cycling, for a charity that means a lot to me. The aim is to raise AUD$2000 (and hopefully a lot more!). MND (Motor Neurone Disease, or ALS), has no cure. Once diagnosed, life span is usually no more than 5 years. It is generally a death sentence.

I plan to give myself three weeks to cover the distance. This includes about 6 to 7 rest days. I’ve put together a little route, which is below, and I’ve also included a (planned) itinerary.

I plan to arrive, at the MCG, on the afternoon of the 10th of June, two days before, Big Freeze 3 – the big Cure for MND Foundation fundraiser.

I will be posting regular updates to Twitter, Instagram, and my Facebook page, and the links can be found at the top right of this page. I would really appreciate it if you could all throw in a bit of money, on the above donation page. Let’s all band together and help fight this beast, and one day hopefully it will be given a knock-out punch!

Proudly supporting Fight MND

A Thousand Miles proudly supports Fight MND. MND stands for Motor Neurone Disease. It is also known as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

It is a progressive disease which attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal chord. This ultimately leads to signals not reaching your muscles (which will eventually waste away). It can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink, breathe, and so on. It is a silent killer. THERE IS NO CURE.
