Welcome to the website of Cycling Across Borders; devoted to the cycling exploits of the Greenham family, supporting Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) through our bike rides.
To finish 2013 off with a bang the family will be cycling from the north to the south of Tasmania, again with the official support of Médecins Sans Frontières. The ride is expected to be just over two weeks and will see us pedal 750km; check out our itinerary and route here.
Earlier in 2013 was another successful instalment of the annual Mount Gambier to Melbourne fund-raising ride – read about it here and see why you should join in 2014! Thanks to those who joined the Greenhams for this ride.
2012 saw another European journey; from Ankara to Athens. Again, a Mount Gambier to Melbourne ride was done to raise money (and train the legs!). Thanks to Human Powered Cycles in Northcote for preparing our bikes for this European trip.
2007 saw the premier ‘Mount Gambier to Melbourne’ ride of 500km, plus a European trip from ‘Rotterdam to Rome’. Nearly 3000kms were covered, and plenty of stories created, during the two rides.
2008 repeated the trip from Mount Gambier to Melbourne. Now an annual journey, the 2010 and 2011 rides were fully endorsed fundraisers for Médecins Sans Frontières Australia. In 2009, due to involvement in the Black Saturday fires the ride had to be cancelled.
Thank you for all the support on our rides and for donations to Médecins Sans Frontières, in 2011 we have passed AUD$10,000 raised! To keep the total rising, please donate in Australia via the Everyday Hero website (renewed prior to each event) or the Australian Médecins Sans Frontières office. For people overseas please donate through the Médecins Sans Frontières International link.
