Having never trained on a mountain bike, I've set myself the challenge of completing what's known as 'the toughest mountain biking race in the world'. A 100km race around the Swiss/French alps - MB Race . With less than a three weeks to practice the skills required to complete the race, I've definitely set myself an unreasonable challenge.
Youth Off The Streets is a non-denominational community organisation working for disadvantaged young people who may be homeless, drug dependent and/or recovering from abuse. I hope to be volunteering with the outreach program for the remainder of my time in Sydney and providing cycling skill lessons when possible. Cycling is a big part of Youth Off The Streets, thanks to the Cycle of courage program, it’s a great way to offer students new opportunities. It uses physical activity to empower students to overcome challenges, develop supportive relationships being part of a team, practice self-discipline and perform acts of generosity.
