For the 7th year the Greenham family, and friends, will be cycling almost 500km in 4 days this March Labor Day long-weekend. The annual ride is to raise money for the international, emergency medical-aid organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). This year promises to be the biggest and best yet, with steady growth in the number of people joining our ride, whether for a short section or the whole trip!
The ride is officially sanctioned by MSF as a fundraising event and we sincerely thank them for their support. The inspiration for these rides comes from the ethos that MSF display in providing much-needed aid to those most desperate, regardless of race, religion, creed or status. Please visit the MSF website for more information on their amazing work.
The itinerary is:
Friday 7 March – Depart Mount Gambier 5pm to Dartmoor 7pm, 50km
Saturday 8 March – Depart Dartmoor 8am via Port Fairy to Warrnambool 4pm, 150km
Sunday 9 March – Depart Warrnambool 8 am via Camperdown to Inverleigh 5pm, 160km
Monday 10 March – Depart Inverleigh 9am to Melbourne 2pm, 90km
We really encourage anyone to join us over whatever distance suits. Please comment below or contact Michael Greenham if you are interested. The ride will pass through Port Fairy while the Folk Festival is in swing, and as usual there will be food stops at Camperdown and Werribee, so don’t be shy.
