MS Ocean Ride 2016

My name is Claire and I work in the insurance team.

I started cycling just over a year ago with friends at the weekend.

I jumped at the opportunity when I was asked to take place in the ‘MSWA Ocean Ride‘ raising funds for those who suffer from neurological conditions. Our team ‘Going Beyond’ consisted of six riders including Michelle Coelho – WA State Manager.

In preparation for the 70 kms ride I felt I needed to up my game so I joined a group fitness team to improve my core strength. I also increased the number of cycle rides and distance per week.

On the day we had perfect riding conditions and the team raised over $2,500.

The best part of the day was crossing the finishing line and knowing that I had raised vital funds for this worthy cause.

I felt a great sense of personal achievement – if you focus on the end goal you can achieve great things!
