My Goal

Did you know that 65,000 Australians attempt to take their life each year? We believe that gives us 65,000 reasons to run for a great cause!

Every year over 65,000 Australians attempt to take their lives – that gives me 65,000 reasons to Tread As One.

R U OK?'s vision is a world where we're all connected and protected from suicide. 

Their mission is to inspire and empower people to meaningfully connect and lend support to the people in their world who may be struggling with life.

I believe in their mission and will be running as far as I can and raising as much money and awareness as possible for this cause that’s close to my heart.

I’d really appreciate your support – every donation helps.

Your donation will help inspire people to take the time to ask "are you OK?" and listen, which can help people struggling with life feel connected long before they even think about suicide.

Thank you for your support, together we will make a difference as we Tread As One.

Final update!

Saturday 22nd May
Good morning all..
 
I exceeded my revised goal of $1000 BOOM!
 
The total raised is now $1071 which has blown me away and gave me the encouragement to finish this challenge.
A really big thanks to everyone that has donated so far! Don’t worry, there is still time to kick in a few bucks if you missed out.
 
Final update:
 
On Thursday, Zwift released a new ‘world’ called Yumezi, so  last night I checked it out and completed two routes; Two Village Loop and Countryside Tour and they look amazing. Meant to get more pics, but there are a couple below.
 
This morning I joined the TBR 101 endurance team @ 7:00am for three laps of the R.G.V. route in France. The pace was solid, but eventually, I dropped off the back coming into my third 25km lap. Thanks to one of the TBR guys – Mike who helped me around the last lap.
 
So challenge completed.. I cycled 500km in 6 days and raised an amazing amount of money for a really great cause which is personal to me and lots of other people.
Thanks again to everyone for your support comments, kind words and generous donations.
 
Distance: 501km

Day 5 - The home stretch

Friday 21st May
Good morning all..
 
The total raised is now $895 so, fingers crossed, I will be able to meet my new $1000 goal by tomorrow, which is amazing. Thanks to everyone that donated yesterday.
 
Day 5 update:
 
Last night I joined Dan Diesel, a Zwift pacing bot, for 30km of hot laps around Watopia.
 
Up at 5:30am this morning to join Team Italy to ride around the “Sand and Sequoias” route totalling 35km before hoping across to London for a 25km ride with training buddy Andrew.

As of this morning, the bucket has 391km in it and its getting close to full. I’ll be riding again tonight and hopefully knock out the remaining 70km tomorrow morning.

Day 4 update

Thursday 20th May
The total raised is now $738 so I have re-adjusted my target to be $1000, which is pretty fantastic.
Thanks to everyone that donated yesterday.

Day 4 update:

Last night was spent resting and recovering, so no riding, which was really, really nice.

This morning, after sleep in, I was up at 5:40am and on the trainer for the first of 2 rides starting at 6:10am.
I joined in REVO’s social ride around Watopia’s Tempus Fugit route, which is mercifully pretty flat. After completing 30km there, I then hoped across to France to join my two training buddies, Steve and Andrew for another 30km ride around the R.G.V. route (see the pics below) at 7:00am. Arguably, it’s one of the most beautiful virtual routes in Zwift.

Bonus points: I’m past the half way mark at 300km with 2.5 days to go. Another 30km ride tonight should set me up for the last two days.

Day 3 update

Wednesday 19th May

Thanks again to everyone who has donated so far. I’ve raised an amazing $691, which has blown me away. I had set a target of $250 and didn’t expect to even reach that, so thanks!

Day 3 update:

I got home last night and joined in with the CyclingTips group for their Tuesday ride. I was surprised that I felt pretty good and even competed in their sprint challenge coming 6th overall. That ride added another 30km to the bucket.

This morning I was up at 5:20am again (very slowly I might add) and back on the trainer, this time riding with the AHDR group around Watopia. Unfortunately, last night’s sleep did little to replenish my legs and the feeling of lead quickly returned by the end of lap 1 (of 3 laps). Regardless I pressed on and completed the 37km ride and then jumped straight into a 2nd ride with the DIRT crew (Dads Inside Riding Trainers) and finished our 50min ride feeling pretty exhausted.

All up, I ticked over 240km this morning which keeps me on track to meet my 500km target this Saturday.

2nd Day..

Tuesday 18th May
Day 2 and this morning started slightly later @ 5:20am. On my bike by 5:40am ready to ride with the AHDR team around the Douce France route. After yesterday's 80km ride, my butt was feeling just a little tender (i can only image what day 3 will be like). I stayed with the C grade riders averaging around 3w/kg until over the first KOM. I was losing power in my legs, which isn't surprising as I haven't been doing long rides for a little while (mostly 20/30km rides). I opted to drop off the back and managed to form a gruppetto with a handful of other riders to help tick over the remaining minutes left.

After that, I then joined good friends Steve and Joe (thanks for the donations boys) for a 20km cycle around Watopia's Volcano Flat route. Normally, this would be a quick ride, but after the 40km AHDR ride, my legs were feeling like lead, so I greatly appreciated sitting in behind the other 2 while they dragged me around. All up, another 60kms ticked off!
