Next march Brett Goldin will be taking part in the Murray to Moyne cycle ride. We’re pleased here at PBK to help where we think it’s deserved and on its way over there now is one of our Ti framesets with SRAMs 2010 Force groupset and various other bits and pieces. Here is the reason behind the ride:
“On the 26th of November 2003 I experienced something that no parent should ever have to and that was loosing a child. My precious little boy Gabriel was taken from us after spending almost 3 months in the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne Australia.
The Doctors and nurses were like angels to us. They made us feel so comfortable throughout our long days and nights sitting in the ward. Without them we would never have been able to fully understand the situation we were facing and the challenges that lay ahead.
The day that Gabriel died I made a promise to myself that I would do everything in my power to help the Royal Children’s Hospital. So I have taken the drive of my promise and my passion of cycling and put the two together to raise money for these incredible people.
On the 27th and 28th of March 2010 I will be riding 520km in 24hrs to raise money for the Children’s Cancer Centre at the Royal Children’s Hospital.
I have been sponsored by the amazing team at ProBikeKit and I will be training and completing the ride on a 2010 PBK Titanium frame. This incredible frame is equipped with 2010 Sram Force and is a truly amazing piece of machinery.
I am truly proud to be part to be part of the PBK team and thank them once again for the incredible support.
I will be blogging my training rides and progress up until the ride.
We wish you all the best from here in chilly England, and look forward to reading about your training efforts – where a lot of the fun happens (in a painful way!) Here is a link to Bretts twitter and sponsorship page:
