As many of you may know, outside of my family and work, my passion in life is road cycling…..for the physical/mental health benefits, the beautiful places I have seen on my bike and what it has taught me about myself….usually in those moments when I have wanted to give up riding a very tall mountain !!!

 

Since 2013, I have been combining this passion for cycling by participating in the Sydney2CAMberra bike ride to raise awareness and funds for Red Nose (Sudden Infant Death syndrome – SIDS) and Stillbirth Foundation charities.

 

This is a cause particularly close to me both as a Dad of 2 beautiful and healthy children and as a brother to a sister who unfortunately passed due to cot-death/SIDS when not a lot was known about this and rarely was ever talked about.  And whilst we have come a long way in research, understanding and support to reduce occurance of SIDS, unfortunately 6 babies in Australia are lost everyday to Stillbirth with still no clear answers why or reductions in this level.

 

Due to COVID restrictions, we will be unable to cycle from Sydney to Canberra next weekend so instead I will instead be cycling the same distance (310 km) over 2 days as well as setting out to win the King of the Mountain prize for the most metres climbed (approx. 3-4 km vertically over the 2 days)

 

If you would like to support me – you can make a donation on this fundraising page

 

Thanks for your support

 

Ben
