Rider

The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

After completing tours of Tasmania in 2014 and North Queensland in 2016 this will be Jon’s third Chain Reaction ride. After a misspent youth when the primary use of a bicycle was fleeing from the scene, Jon has returned to two wheels and regularly drags himself out of bed to join the great bunch of Chain Reaction riders - usually heading north to Bobbin Head, Akuna or the Gorges. Jon does not enjoy coach Phil Tanner’s training regime but he does belligerently accept that it probably works.
Chain Reaction’s contribution to the Victor Chang Research Institute has been and continues to be significant and it is this knowledge - that the efforts of all the CR riders will change lives - that helps to drive Jon. He is supported by and ever grateful to his long suffering wife, Val and son, Jake.
Jon is Head of Office Asset Management at AMP Capital and is based in Sydney. He is blessed with work colleagues and friends that he expects will be keen to support his fund raising efforts
