The ride will raise money for Camp Quality which supports children impacted by cancer.
The 10-day ride will start at Movie World in the Gold Coast on 6 September and finish in Warners Bay.
Craig began training in January trying to get 100ks a week of riding in, saying: “For an inexperienced rider it’s pretty much train, train, train.”
Before the ride in September he will need to complete some qualifying races:
- Loop the Lake in March (86 kms)
- The Mail Run in April (100 kms)
- The Century Challenge (120kms)
- Bingleburra ride in June (55kms against the clock)
These will be followed by a big qualifying ride in August where 65 riders work as a pack.
This is the first time Craig has attempted something like this.
“I just bought a bike and decided to try and make a difference to someone less fortunate than myself.
“There’s no bigger motivator than knowing children are struggling, and my short term pain will make someone’s life a little easier.”
