Well today's ride started so well - brilliant weather, everyone positive and excited and NASHS wonderfully organised with their two head prefects starring with wonderful speeches. Not to be outdone we had our director of Youth Focus and chairman of Atlas Iron, David Flanagan, who also responded and was succinct and to the point before his Atlas team assisted in the Q and A session with the students.
The Albany dinner is always one of the highlights of the Hawaiian Ride for Youth and last night was no different. MC extraordinaire Micky G was in career best form holding court at the Rustlers Steakhouse. Australian cycling great Henk Vogels Jnr gave everyone an insight about what it takes to have a successful 15 year career on the pro-circuit.
The excitement is building as our riders and support crew prepare to head to Albany for the 2013 Hawaiian Ride for Youth. Just as the buses were leaving the City Beach car park our fundraising total hit the $900,000 mark! You can donate by going to www.rideforyouth.com.au
