Bondy Road Raise

Road Raise 2021

Multiple 100km training rides

Late Feb and early March has developed into multiple 100km hit outs in preparation for end of month big week of cycling... the training has been consistent with struggles on the inclines!!! ? however, the other RR team riders have been amazing in their encouragement and how it’s about team and not the individual. Likewise the purpose is about team/village around you to help you through the tough times and the ongoing support that comes with it.. amazing privilege to be a part of this journey... 

Target reached

Hi goes out to all my sponsors!!!

Big thank you for helping me achieve my goal of $5k...

I think we can work on getting more in for this cause and I now go out to you to publish this out in social media in amongst your contacts to raise awareness of this amazing charity and it’s work in supporting kids and  their families affected by cancer... 

Your help thus far in sponsoring me has been amazing! Seriously amazing, and I am so appreciative of it..  help me that one bit more and get it out there amongst your contacts to achieve financial support in enabling hope for the those that are doing it tough with this disease...

In the words of the indomitable Jeff Fennech ...... “luv use all”.... 

Thanks
Serge

Well on the way to target

Just an update on the fundraising!! To all of you who have already contributed!! Thank you thank You!!!

50%, 60%, 70% 80% target achieved over the last few days. Thanks to all who attended the Ruski rider dinner fundraise. I hope the taste of Russian food has introduced you to a “different” perception of blah blah bland Russian food consisting of more than just potatoes!!!! Now you have beets, pickled herring, carrots and lots of meat mixed in with a smattering of Plov (Russian rice dish)... ?

 Your contributions have pushed towards achieving my goal. More  cash donations are making their way to this total.  

Thanks to all who attended and partnered with me in achieving the funds donated thus far. 

You guys are awesome and my sincere thanks to out to you...

Stay tuned for more updates!! 4 weeks to go before the ride starts.. 4 weeks of tough training in prep still to go!! 

40% target achieved

A big thanks to the guys who kindly donated today. You have pushed the donations target over the 40% achievement. Sincerely thankful ?

We are not done yet, any support financially will benefit this great cause. I am aiming to exceed my commitment and with your help we can do so!!  Thanks and sincere appreciation..

Woolly weather means indoor training

Let me put it out there!! I really dislike workouts on an indoor bike trainer. Nothing can bore me more than staring at a screen of cycling avatars on Zwift. But, perspective is if you are hit by effects of chemo which I have seen first hand, boring Zwift is nothing... anyway only 15km at 202m climb mostly at 7% gradient doing Box Hill in London virtually is now fun!! ?

This month is climbing, climbing climbing... need to concentrate on leg strength and burn to feel the fatigue and get used to it... 

Update on training

January end is fast approaching.. just did a training ride this morning...and (a) Was late to start with my other ride raise cyclists due to puncture (10-15 mins late). By the time I set out for outer harbour they were long gone ?..... got on the back of the wheel of an awesome cyclist who “nurtured” me all the way to bower road round about (from glenelg) at 35-40km/hr.. with a tail wind .... (b) saw my group approaching me opposite side, quick u turn and I was already 150m behind.. pushing 30km/Hr into head wind solo... tough tough tough... got dropped... ?... made my way back to glenelg and caught up with them after their photo shoot finished.. ?... coffee, met the rest of my fellow riders and then left for home.. point is, check ur bike the night before, be prepared and stick in the group and all will be fine.... got it now!! 

10% target achieved in 5 hours

You guys who donated are amazing.. Ralphie... thanks for tipping the 10%. Sincerely appreciate it.. 

Guys, great cause and would be awesome if you partner with me to achieve the $5k goal. Let’s all aim to  exceed it!!  

Thanks muchly

Serge

Training Ride

First training ride with some of my new ride raise colleagues up to bollards... pain... tiredness but will aim to get up at least twice a week mixing it with climbing and flats during the week!! Thanks guys

Help me to support young people living with cancer!

Hi There,

In March 2021 I am committed to make a difference in supporting young people when cancer crashes into their world.

CanTeen is the game changer - They help young people cope with cancer in their family, rebuild their foundations and connect with their peers in similar situations.

I'll be saddling up with 35 like minded cyclists on an epic journey around SA - over 7 days travellling more than 1000kms AND reaching a total elevation of over 11800 Metres ! I do not have this in the bag - many hours ahead of me pushing my limits and experience to date.... but, I know my pain and “burn” is insignificant in comparison to those fighting this disease and fight for their life.

My goal is to raise $5k - I’ll do the physical work but i need your help to sponsor and donate, partnering with me to impact and influence the lives of humans in desperate need of hope and support. 

Please help me to reach my goal and together we can be the difference in their lives.

Thank you so much for your support!

Serge

The cancer road is like a secret society you fear getting an invitation to but once you’re in you know you want to help anyone else whose been “invited”! You also find that God meets you - even there - in most amazing unexpected ways. If you lean in you find He is all He said He would be in scripture ..and even with that it’s a difficult journey.

You have done it ...you hit the financial goal 👏🏻👏🏻 So many people cheering you on ... what an incredible honour to ride the upcoming kilometers for strangers who desperately need someone to fill in some of the tiny gaps as they carry their children through one of life’s toughest grief journey... you’ve got this, it will be life changing and we will be waiting at the finish line hearts bursting with pride and gratitude that you got to make a difference ... so so so proud even before it’s done ... x
