Ventyx Ride for Research (Wesley Hospital)

Postby BrisVegas » Tue Sep 03, 2013 11:40 am

Hi all,

I'm off on a 7-day 700km charity ride this Friday 6th Sept. My employer (Ventyx, fromerly Mincom) sponsors the Wesley Research Institute and this year's major fundraiser is a bike ride. There are 16 of us going and we've raised just over $30k so far, half of which has come from individual sponsors. The rest has come from raffles, brekky's and Bunnings sausage sizzles, silent auctions and garage sales etc. Corporate sponsorship has been almost non-existant. :( Sign of the times I guess.

I've been back on the bike for nearly two years on and off and i've done a couple of 100km mass participation rides. I've been trying to be consistent with my riding this year to get ready and have done 4,500km so far. I haven't done anything like a 7-dayer since I was 16 though! :shock: I'm still a big unit, so it'll be hard work. There's a couple of really fit guys in the team, a few of us who are mediocre riders and a couple of newbies. We're aiming to avg 25km/h.

The route is Brisbane-Laidley-Toowoomba-Dalby-Kingaroy-Kilcoy-Bribie-Brisbane, so there's a few decent climbing days.

Feel free to check out progress and pics as we go and of course all donations are greatly appreciated!

Wish me luck! 8)
