The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

Charles Gardiner

Charlie Gardiner is a senior associate at law firm, Arnold Bloch Leibler, practicing in the firms litigation department with particular focus on property and construction litigation.

Between 2002 and 2008, Charlie played 63 AFL games for the Geelong and St Kilda Football Clubs. Since then, Charlie has swapped the boots for the bike and developed a keen interest in cycling.

Chain Reaction 2017 will be Charlie's second Chain Reaction challenge. Having recently become a father for the second time (resulting in significantly less time spent on the bike), Charlie is keen to re-introduce himself to the bike by tackling the challenge of Chain Reaction and to make a significant contribution to raising vitally important funds for the various children's causes supported by Chain Reaction.
