On Saturday 10th March, a team of 21 cyclists and 4 support crew left Canberra in little black tutus bound for Melbourne.

Federal Member for Fraser Andrew Leigh MP joined the team for an honorary lap around Parliament House and at 10.30am Chief Minister Katy Gallagher cut the ribbon and officially sent them on their way.

The team covered over 1,000km and travelled through some of the most spectacular and challenging terrain across New South Wales and Victoria. The route tackled The Snowies and included a full day on Mt Buller.

Raising $205,128, the team helped us increase community awareness about bowel cancer and the importance of regular screening; and promote our corporate bowel screening program to encourage the screening of employees from age 40.

The team included: Nick Lee, Justin Stewart-Rattray, Matty Hopkinson, Sam Fischer, Stephen Tilley, Robbie Dolan, Richard Turner, Peter McLucas, Lincoln Harris, Justin Hotton, Andrew Poole and Aaron Mayes.

A huge thanks to the support crew – Paul Hotton, Wayne Harding, Rob Jones

We were lucky enough to have the support of 50 Kaliber. Take a look at this beautiful short film they put together about Nick, Ride for the Little Black Dress and Jodi’s story … here.
