    I'm currently again riding the Great Cycle Challenge Australia to raise money for finding a cure for cancer in children.
    The challenge consists of nominating a distance to ride in October and then riding it over the duration of the month. Sponsors can donate to the cause. After 8 days I'm 206km into the 500 goal that I set as a target. Prior to day 1 of the challenge I hadn't ridden 20km in a day since January. Other than this time last year I haven't ridden 500km in a month since I was about 18. I hit 50 a few months back so that much regular riding is something my body isn't used to.
    I don't get anything from the challenge unless I am 1 of the 1st 2500 to reach $500 in donations and at that point I could receive a riding jersey.

    If anyone on ACL would like to support me and the childhood cancer cause the link is below. For anyone who donates $AU50 or more if you'd like to send me a message and I will hook them up with a 10% discount voucher for my site to be used during October. http://www.hansonelectronics.com.au
    This Thursday (11th October 2018) there's a donation matching day from 4 corporations so that every dollar donated adds two dollars to the fundraising. I'll do a deal on that day too. Any donation on that day that adds $AU50 or more to the GCC cause I'll give out a 10% voucher for.


    Currently I'm 198th by distance of the few thousand Victorian riders who have registered to ride and raise money. I'm hoping to finish the month in the top 100 and would love to make the top 100 fundraisers.

    Thanks from myself and Children's Medical Research Institute and eventually children saved from cancer to anyone who donates.

    I forgot to say that the discount doesn't apply to a few items.
    These are Raspberry Pi's, BeagleBone Black and power supplies. It also only applies to in stock items.
    Tomorrow is GCC double donation day or as it's known there Kick Cancers Butt Day.

    I've now passed the halfway mark for my nominated distance and fundraising goal.
    271km and $289.80.
    Thanks go to several ACL members who've been among my sponsors.
    Tomorrow is my last chance to get some more km under the belt as there's 4 days of wet to very wet weather on the way.
