Ed Birt, Chief Operating Officer of The Disability Trust, is a keen cyclist and will be participating in the Indian Pacific Wheel Ride in March to raise funds to purchase equipment to support our new CycleAbility Program and other existing programs such as Vacation Care and Getaway Saturday. The Indian Pacific Wheel Ride is a solo unsupported, 5,500km ride ocean-to-ocean across Australia starting in Fremantle WA on Saturday 20 March 2020.

The CycleAbility program will be supporting independence, fitness and social inclusion through the use of bicycles as active transport. The program will provide skills, knowledge and safety in using bicycles and Wollongongs cycling infrastructure.

The empowering CycleAbility program will be facilitated through The Disability Trust's Sport and Recreation team and will run on the last Saturday of every month commencing 29 May 2021. The program will be run from The Disability Trust's head office car park in Wollongong (5 Edney Lane Spring Hill) with a focus on


Skills development,

Safety while riding,

Bicycle maintenance and repair and

Getting to know the Wollongong Cycle network.

100% of funds raised will go towards purchase of equipment for the CycleAbility and other Programs of The Disability Trust.

Eds ride will start at Freemantle Lighthouse at 6.22am on Saturday 20 March 2021 and you can watch Ed's journey on the link below.
