"Arguably Australia's toughest and most rewarding single day cycling event"
On November 19th 2011, sisters Laura and Emily will take part in the Sea 2 Summit cycling challenge to raise money for Redkite, who provide support to children with cancer and their families. They will ride their bikes from Merimbula Beach to the top of Mt Kosciusko. The ride is a total of 248kms and climbs 5500m of vertical. This ride has been described as "Australia's toughest and most rewarding single day cycling event".

Over the next 3 and a half months, they will be training and building up to the event. Laura has been cycling for a few years now and will help bring Emily up to speed as until 2 weeks ago, she had not ridden 1km on a road bike, let alone 248kms! But, in Emily's words "if you are going to do something insane, you might as well do something COMPLETELY insane!"

You can stay up to date on their training progress by clicking on the tab above. To be able to participate on the day, the girls must raise $2500 each. If you would like to make a donation, please click the button below. Every donation helps, no matter how big or small, and don't forget that every donation over $2 is tax deductable.
