The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

Wes Ballantine

Wes leads Transurban’s Queensland business. Having moved to Brisbane almost three years ago, Wes and his family have loved everything the river city has had to offer.

A novice rider leading into last year’s ride in Adelaide, Wes has enjoyed a more “realistic” training schedule this year. He finds the Chain Reaction process inspiring with great people, fitness and wonderful destinations - all for a worthwhile cause.

“As a father of four healthy kids, it means so much to me to make a small contribution to so many kids and families facing challenges in their lives. Your support is greatly appreciated so this year’s ride can make a meaningful difference at AEIOU and Ronald McDonald House.”
