The ultimate corporate
bike challenge

My passion for cycling all started with social riding with friends, sprint triathlons, commuting to work and then realising that riding was most often the quickest way to get around Melbourne, all whilst getting fit!

I'm always up for a challenge and wanted to be involved in supporting a great charity, so combine the two and this event is the perfect combination. I completed my first half marathon earlier this year and all I could think of whilst training was "get me back on the bike!" So here I am now ready for a new challenge... and riding up Mt Buller will be a huge challenge.

I am a Health Information Manager and have been working at Epworth HealthCare for over ten years. My job enables me to review work processes with a variety of staff aiming to maximise efficiencies and improve patient care.
