Hey, it's flattering that people are liking out pics. But it's not about us, it's about Rob.

So, while are liking what you are seeing, how about adding to it with your own pics.

I don't see anything in qeaou's original post that stops us from reporting from any number of places we ride.

Totally agree!
Thanks for the post.

My original photo post was from Chum Creek Ride, Victoria,
Some of the other I took of other riders,
The Kazakhstan team was epic (on facebook)
The one with the car rack was in Sydney,
Will have some in the Around the Bay in a Day - Melbourne, VIC

Will do a ride in Queensland (early Nov) will take plenty of photos there.
The clip was incredibly touching as reported by the family of Rob.

Keep on supporting the cause, it makes a difference and is a great sign of support for the most important thing we can have - health and Life.

This one was directed to me for inclusion from Jo Bolton.

Jo is the son of the legendary Reg Bolton, grand daddy of "community circus" the world over - such as you see in schools and on the street.

Jo himself is prominent as the principal of "Suitcase Circus" (total troupe of two, fits in a suitcase, get it?) for many years. If you ever saw the shows in the Masters Milk tent at the Royal Show then you will have seen Jo. For Jo a unicycle is just like a second skin.

Here's Jo on his 36" uni.

Cyclists are cyclists so what the hell - Some strangers I just asked, out for a Sunday ride and coffee and happy to oblige at Sassys in Perth.

So Hi to you Rob from some kindred riders.

Fantastic!

You guys are amazing, and it is truly appreciated.

(PS. Did a 113km test ride fro Around the Bay, watch out for the guy with "Rob Be Strong! Marker written on calfs )

cheers qeaou, will keep an eye out for you, and say g'day if I get the chance. Great thing you're doing, I know from the comments of some family members in the past that any kind of moral support is a huge help.
Keep up the great work.

I know the feeling. No Worries, maybe on the next ride, where is O'Reillys?

I had my sign laminated in the office and when keeping in my back jersey pocket it opened up and started rubbing against my back, had several scratches after the ride... but hey sometimes you have to suffer a bit to do something good. :)

Down on the border between Qld and NSW, it's at the top of an almost constant 35km climb. Unbelievable place.
