As a former anti-lycraist, I was hesitant to be joining the ride, but wearing the Jersey was an incredible feeling! being a part of a big team representing different charities all moving in the same direction had an epic feel about it. What a beautiful way to see one of Australia's greatest stretches of coastline!
I'm so glad that I went on the ride, and that you persisted with me, as it was an amazing experience that I will never forget. What surprised me the most is how mentally refreshed I feel from being forced to switch off, being completely in the moment (surrounded by breath-taking views) and having to make new friends along the way. I can't speak more highly of it. Thank you so much Craig - you're doing really amazing things!! :)
The 25000Spins adventure was life changing. It was a great ride with amazing people who shared everyone's pain and joy. There were gorgeous views and stunning locales, it had a good mix of challenging climbs and adrenalin filled straights. The support crew were always there when you needed and we're always good for a laugh. A true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
This is a great way to bond with others while achieving a big challenge for yourself. I got to be part of a
great charity, and link the friends who sponsored me to a nonprofit that's doing good in the world. And then
the challenge of doing this ride helped me stretch myself and learn to depend on others. When I was going
through difficult sections of the ride, I remembered what we were doing it for, the kids who lacked basic
needs, and the many people who sacrificed financially to help with this project. My job was to do the hard
ride, so it motivated me to live up to my part of the combined effort.
