Day 6 Wrap Up | Ride West 2018

Day 6

Another huge day  for day 6 with over 220kms peddled in the hot sun from Augathella to Blackall, Queensland. We started at the Ellengowen Hotel for breakfast aka ‘Smileys’. We were happy to learn that all of the leftover food from the crew gets donated to the men’s shed in Augathella.

The last 40kms of the day flew by and we were greeted with another fabulous welcoming committee in Blackall. Kath, one of the Royal Flying Doctor Service nurses, is a part of the mental health and suicide awareness team in Outback Queensland. Kath took the day out of her holiday, to follow us and cheer the team on at different points of the ride throughout the week. It was a pleasure to have her support on this journey.

The final day of cycling today! Robbie McEwen is joining us to give the team that extra push to make it through the last leg of the ride into Longreach, Queensland.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 $292,000 with only $8,000 to go!
