This was a charity ride to raise money for White Lion. This organisation aims to help disadvantaged youth in the 10-24 year age bracket and you can read about While Lion HERE. It is a very worthwhile cause.
The ride began at 5.30 am on Saturday at the Port Douglas Surf Life Saving Club and all cyclists had to be back at the Surf Club by 3.00 pm. Any cyclists that were still on the road would be picked up after this time. Philip's pack was back by 2.00 pm so he had plenty of time to spare. He said that he averaged a speed of 26km/hour and considering that this included some very steep climbs it was a great effort.
