My target 1000 kms

I am raising money to support the ongoing work of Hands Across the Water because every child deserves to live a life of choice!

What an amazing opportunity for you to be part of our journey by donating generously to help over 350 children have better choices for their future. I invite you to follow along the journey as we train ready for April.

This is the third time I have done the ride - it is both exhausting physically as well as mentally. It is not an easy task, and by your support it encourages me to put the extra energy I have to making each turn of the pedal happen. 

We will be having a number of fundraisers along the way and happy to tell you about what and why we are doing. 

This time with the ride in April , yea re fortunate enough to be able to train over the summer months with heat as well as the daylight savings light. This means that riding after work is possible.

There will also be a lot of me trying to learn to love mountains, apparently the south ride , which is what we are doing - is a bit more of a hilly ride. So if you hear someone swearing in English or Thai- it is most likely me!

Not long to go now ... So we have one more training ride tomorrow in Australia before Graeme and I fly out Wednesday morning to head for Thailand. We are so grateful for all of the support shown for the fundraising ( PLEASE NOTE - IT'S NOT OVER ! ). We have had some events well attended and generosity shown by not just attending but also donations. We know it is not possible to attend everything, so we have also had many donations to the cause directly. 

So the plan is to keep you updated through our Facebook page - please search and join if you haven't already. 
Kate and Graeme's Thailand Charity Ride 2023

With the adventures along the way, there will be some stories to share. 
We are going a few days early to get used to the temperature and catch up with other riders.  

Ready to ride

amazing how  the days can go so fast, have so many plans to get out on the bike and work gets in the way. The recent mains in the area I have also contributed but now is the time no excuses has to happen. Yesterday we picked up our new bikes and took them for their maiden ride this morning before work. smooth run now and next ride is already planned. Realistically, we only have five months before we write again. So in the next week we need to make it well-known so that any donations over the Christmas period can be added to the tally for the charity.
