BIKE FOR BIBLES RIDE


Bike for Bibles is under the banner of the Bible Society.

Fay and I are heading off on a Bike for Bibles ride (BFB) from Cairns to Melbourne. It's a bit over 3,000 km (nearly 2,000 miles).
After having been on about 15 rides since 1994 I've decided to go as a roadie this time. That means I'll drive behind a team and be ready to provide them with their daily needs such as water, pump, spare tube, sunscreen, fruit and lollies! Fay is going as a food roadie. That means she will be part of the team that organises the tucker - brekky, morning tea and lunch. Evening meals are usually looked after by local churches as we travel through the towns. Sometimes we go to an RSL or Leagues club for the evening meal.
There will be about 15 riders and 7 support crew. We even have a blind lady riding this trip (yes, she's on the back of a tandem!)
So, we're busy getting things organised because our house has been sold!!! Settlement is on 22 May. Wow! Yep, looks like we're gonna depart Dubbo.
I'll put the schedule on this blogsite shortly. Departs Cairns 5 April and arrives Melbourne 2 May.
