Riding for a Cause

While not everyone can turn riding into a full-time job, you can still harness the power of cycling for good.  Ammon Mackie has high ambitions in life, strong family values, work aspirations, and is the forefront in his community.

He is certainly no stranger to the cycle paths, Ammon has more reasons to be apart of this year’s Ride for a Reason raising cancer research funds in the Tour Down Under.

“I’m really excited each year to be able to make a difference and ‘Ride for a Reason’, says Ammon.

In his fourth year to ride in the event, Ammon has seen over the year’s family and friends whose lives have been touched by cancer and this is his way of making a difference.

The Bupa Challenge Tour will be held on Friday 23 January 2015 as part of the Tour Down Under.  Thanks to the efforts in cancer research over the last 20 years in Australia.

Ammon joins hundreds of passionate cyclists who will ride to beat cancer. Starting in Glenelg and finishing in Mount Barker, Ammon will tackle the full distance of 151.7km. Other cyclist may opt-in for a shorter challenge that is right for them: Willunga 118.7km, Mt Compass 77.5km or Macclesfield 27km.

It is a great cause, and a great way to raise funds for research. With your help you can help raise money in the fight against cancer.

Keep those pedals turning Ammon, and good luck!
