Tour de OROC supporting Macquarie Home Stay 2024

Cycling is something I really love to do. It makes me feel alive, and it is a way to celebrate the fact that I am fit and healthy. I have been given the opportunity to take on the challenge of Tour de OROC 2024, a 750km cycling challenge around the Orana region, taking in the towns of Coonamble,
Walgett, Lightening Ridge, Brewarrina, Bourke, and Cobar, with the goal to raise as much money as possible for Macquarie Homestay, Dubbo. I have not visited most of these towns and I can’t think of a better way to do it than with a bunch of adventurous, like-minded people.
Funds raised by this adventure will contribute to the construction of and fit-out of Macquarie Homestay’s planned extension to ensure that families of the Orana region, especially those receiving treatment at the newly opened Western Cancer Centre in Dubbo and Dubbo Hospital have access to affordable and accessible accommodation when they are receiving treatment.
Please help me to support the cause by making a tax-deductible donation through the link on this page or by sharing this link with your friends and family. It will be very much appreciated by the people of the Orana Region, and Macquarie Homestay.

Thanks so much!

I had a rumour that the peloton increases by 2 km/h when you are on the front.
