The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

John Cooper

John Cooper is the Partner-in-Charge of the Brisbane Office of Jones Day. He is a lawyer with over 28 years experience in advising clients on major projects in the construction and infrastructure, energy and resources, property development, manufacturing and defence sectors.
John has been off his bike for almost two years and was recruited by his wife (and greatest supporter) to ride again. Starting training on 1 January 2017 unfit and two years older than when he last rode, he has a long road ahead if he is to be ready. This is not his first ride in support of sick children and he is inspired to ride in the Chain Reaction Challenge Queensland 2017 by no particular child or family but by his desire to do something for those little people that cannot help themselves. John needs your help to help them.
