A Travellerspoint blog

Pre-departure update

Not long to go now!

It’s not long to go now and I’ll be in South America ready to begin my big adventure. Future blogs will share photos and stories from there, but I am posting this first blog to explain what I’m up to and why.
Why am I riding my mountain bike 11000 kilometers from Quito on the equator in Ecuador all the way to Ushuaia at the southern tip of South America?
Two reasons.
Firstly, because it’s been a dream of mine for many years to do this. That is to ride the length of South America along the Andes. I’ve just never been able to find someone else crazy enough to join me, so going with the organized group of Bike Dreams is perfect.
Secondly, it is to raise money for The Kids Cancer Project from The Oncology Children’s Foundation (OCF) is an Australian charity dedicated to finding cures for childhood cancers with the lowest survival rates. Almost half of children with these types of cancer lose their battle. This is an outcome that OCF is determined to improve by funding some of Australia’s best childhood cancer researchers.

They are committed to giving every child with cancer the opportunity to grow up and live their dreams.
I am grateful that I am able to attempt such a challenge. I would like to put this skill to some good by fundraising in order to give all children the opportunity to grow up and live their dreams.
Please help me to support kids suffering from cancer by donating today at http://www.everydayhero.com.au/malcolm_roberts
