When the 8 riders rolled out of 99 Bikes carpark in Southport at 5.30 on Sunday morning, they had no idea how good the next 230km was going to be! Dylan Rock, the ride organiser had put together the CHAPTER 10 ride to remember a good friend of his Ky, who was lost to suicide.
Ky was from Coolum so Dylan decided to ride to Coolum from the Gold Coast to present her family with a special jersey, signed by all the riders who took part in the ride.
It was an epic ride and we couldn’t have asked for more perfect riding conditions. Some guys had never ridden that far before and it was a huge achievement for them to make it. The ride was well supported by Dylan’s mum and dad who did an amazing job keeping everyone fuelled up with bananas (each had a special message engraved into the skin) and awesome power ANZAC biscuits!
Thanks to all the sponsors who supported Dylan on this ride. They included 99 Bikes, Endura Sports Nutrition, Jetts 24hr Finess, Beyond Blue, Fizz Cleaning, Scofield Designs and JAKAZNI for making the awesome jerseys.
Special thanks to Bike Bug Gold Coast for the loan of their vehicle to use as a support vehicle. Thanks Ian it was greatly appreciated.
What a fantastic day in the saddle with a top bunch of riders. Well done everyone involved. See you again next year!
