This March a unique bikepacking event is taking place, the Hunt 1000. Postponed last year due to Covid, this event has been greatly anticipated by bikepacking adventure aficionados. It’s no easy feat; approximately 1000km in distance, departing Melbourne, traversing the Australian alps, to finish in Canberra. Good Cycle’s Head of Operations, Mark Liddle, was one of the people who had dreams of a 2021 start, only to be foiled by the ongoing pandemic. Fortunately, this year provides another opportunity, as Mark discussed his preparation and approach ahead of his upcoming departure.
As supporters of Good Cycles, we want to share with you the difference you help make and why it matters in the current environment.
The way we respond to hard times defines our community. With the help of all our supporters, Good Cycles has increased access to entry-level jobs for young people.
Flexible and inclusive workplaces make it possible for young employees to engage in both work and further study. For people such as Omer, employment at Good Cycles serves to be an incubator rather than an obstacle in a young person’s pursuit of their career ambitions and aspirations.
Bikes impact our lives positively in so many ways. They’re great for our health, they reduce congestion on our roads, they’re an affordable mode of transport and they have minimal impact on the environment. They’re also the foundation of our mission to help young people facing barriers to work.
