The Ultimate Cyclist Experience
"I’m excited to be an ambassador for the MS Red Ride. While representing Australia at the 2012 London Olympics I realised just how lucky I am to be doing what I love in riding my bike every day. There are so many people who don’t have the opportunity to do this so I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to help find a cause and cure for MS. I hope you can join me!”

"The 2013 MS Red Ride was a fantastic event, well organised in every detail. I thoroughly enjoyed riding with a terrific group of people for the purpose of raising awareness and funds for people living with multiple sclerosis. I recommend you taking on the 1000km challenge for an experience of a lifetime.
I look forward to riding with you."
