A huge thank you to all who have supported me in achieving my goal to ride 160 km in the Barossa Valley and raise much needed funds for Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes.



  • 164.5 km at 24.6 km/h
  • 6:41:17 moving time
  • 1776 metres elevation gain

Temperature on the day got to 28C. Faster time and average than last year so I’m pleased with the work effort.


More importantly thanks to the generosity of all, I have been able to raise just under $3600.
