Jen(39) plans to be the first blind cyclist to ride a
tandem bike 18,000 km’s around Australia, leaving Hobart in April 2013.
She is looking for volunteers through the week and weekends
to get her out on the road and off the dining room trainer!
As she is not working at present, Jen is able to ride
during the day and would be very keen to clock up the training km’s with the
wind in her face, rather than just a fan!
Jen is aiming to raise $300,000, for a Lions Sight First
project, to help prevent and cure unnecessary blindness, particularly in
“To be able to raise enough money to help give the “Gift of
Sight” to children and adults, so they too can treasure the beautiful world we
live in, brings a smile to my face, and is a gift which can never be described
She is currently capable of riding 60 – 80 km’s, daily, but
is keen to build back up to last summer’s distances of 500 - 600 km’s per week
by the end of the year.
