Day 4 brought with it some sore bodies after the enormous 220km effort from Chinchilla to Roma the previous day. Nothing but blue skies on Tuesday and a rest day with only 90kms traveled, from Roma to Mitchell, Queensland.The day started with one of our Ride West traditions, a barbecue breakfast supplied by our friends at Pumps n Solar. Pumps n Solar is an agri-business that has been operating in Roma for 25 years.
We then trekked on to Mitchell, having to really watch our tracks as there were many cattle crossing the road. We have decided that cycle-mustering will not be the next farmers fad.
The generosity and enthusiasm from the local communities we have visited, brings to light the value of Ridewest.
Day 5 – Anzac DayThe day started with an early ‘Gunfire’ milk and rum toast to remember the ANZAC’s, before hopping on the bikes to ride to Morven in time for the ANZAC Day Ceremony.
Looking forward to Day 6 where the journey from Augathella to Blackall begins.We are humbled and encouraged by the amazing support we receive in each town. This event is to help these amazing outback Queensland communities with mental health and suicide awareness.
We are proud to announce we are at $274,000 with only $26,000 to go! Click below to donate.
