1000 k's for Kids

Gentlepeople & BG’s

Phil and Dan are committing themselves to start of season “Epic to end all Epic’s” ride by riding 1000 kilometers in 8 days. It’s all in the name of great cause Camp Quality for kids.

That’s 125km a day for the mathematically challenged. The longer stages the organisers have included  stage 5  Morgan to Jamestown and Stage 8 Clare to Adelaide at around 150km offset by short days.

They are looking for both riders to join their team and help reaching the sponsorship target of $4000 per rider. They are still short on riders so act now!! Like TODAY!

Let’s support Dan and Phil and may see if we can find someone to keep them company

If there are no takers for the ultimate sacrifice, please feel free to reach deep in your pockets and sponsor Dan and Phil  at it’s all tax deductible, just enter the name and donate (Daniel Guzej, Philip Pullinger).  

Its all for an amazing cause…and you can’t take it with you….and you won’t even miss it…and give a little to live a little….and so forth. 

They set off on a Sunday so I will suggest that the BG give them an Escort of the first leg.
