What I am asking for and why

Farmers are facing ruin across New South Wales in what some are calling the worst drought in living memory, with costs of stock feed and transport spiralling.

Large swathes of eastern Australia have been in drought for periods ranging from a year to seven years, with the record dry conditions prompting calls for further federal and state measures.

On Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th Of November I will be riding over 350km in and around the Molong & Grenfell area.

I hope you can support me and get behind the real heroes, who are our farmers

What the charity is asking for and why

In 2019 cyclists will unite to rise through Cabone country in Central West NSW, where towns and communities have been struck by the worst drought on record in over a decade. Through corporate partnering, individual fundraising efforts and by collectively spending within communities throughout the ride, we aim to bring not only financial relief but demonstrate the Australian spirit of bringing together different communities at a time of need.

Not only will we be riding through the direct path of drought stricken land we will be stopping in affected towns suffering from the hardship of their current situation.

By employing the services of small businesses such as pubs, cafes and restaurants we will ensure that every cent raised through both partnerships, registrations and fundraising goes directly into these communities and provides some relief.

Event is being held from 8th-10th of November 2019.
