All done and dusted!
Arrived UWA, 11.30am Saturday 26th March to a tremendous and emotional welcome. Totally unexpected.
Inland peloton covered 645km averaging 25km/hr with around 26hrs in the saddle.
We started and finished at around sea level but still climbed 4.5km along the way.
Weather was generally very kind with little headwind.
No aches or pains at all, especially where you might expect!
It was physically and mentally challenging for everyone, especially the 200km first day out of Albany with a final 20km uphill to the overnight forest centre camp at Perup.
I burnt 18,500 calories but lost just 1kg thanks to a constant consumption of Snakes and Liquorice Allsorts.
We passed through several wine regions but all I drank was gallons of electrolyte.
The 3-vehicle radio-linked ride director and support crew were just top notch and protected us from the many huge triple-logging and sand trailers and several idiot drivers.
My fellow riders were an amazing, supportive and inspiring bunch.
It was great chatting to many of them along the way and in the evenings with many generous enough to share their own experiences with mental health issues.
The 2022 Hawaiian Ride For Youth has raised an amazing record $2.99M so far.
This will literally save many young lives and give others a much better future.
What can be better than that?
The earlier we can identify those in need and intervene, so much the better.
Don’t hesitate to contact Youth Focus if you know of anyone in need.

MANY THANKS TO HRFY, TO MY TEAM SPONSOR – THE SIMON LEE FOUNDATION, MY RIDE TEAM COMPRISING JAMES MCTIER, PETER HAROLD AND ALAN TATE, TO EVERYONE IN THE INLAND PELOTON AND ESPECIALLY OUR LEADER VIN GLEESON, TO ALL OF THOSE WHO HELPED TRAIN ME UP WITH A MAJOR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT TO PETER TRENCH, AND TO ALL OF THOSE WHO SO GENEROUSLY DONATED AND SUPPORTED ME.
