Mark is no stranger to charity rides, having completed his first in honour of his wife Mary shortly after graduating from university in 1989.
“I was working in Charleville while my now wife, Mary was nursing there. She had entered the nurse of the year quest and asked if we could complete a cycle ride to raise money for her fundraising.”
“My mates and I were stoked to have raised $2000 by riding from Charleville to Morven, Morven to Augathella and back to Charleville. We rode close to 100km each day with no helmets! $2000 was a lot of money back then, especially for small country towns. It was after this experience that I was inspired to take up cycling and triathlons."
