Amber’s world rocked in September 2012 when she heard the words “you have breast cancer.” She was just 34 years old. She stared at her doctors and said ‘you’re joking’ and then laughed. Breast cancer is for women over 50, I’m 34 there must be some mistake – only older women get breast cancer.’ Little did she know just how very untrue that statement was. After 5 years, Amber discovered that her breast cancer had spread. She says, ‘it’s tough, you don’t just get over cancer once treatment is over, you continue to live it, every single day. If anything, finishing treatment is the scariest thing. You’re thrown back into the real world and the emotional and mental strength it takes to keep yourself out of a mentally dark place is exhausting.’ When Amber was asked why she is fundraising for BCNA she told them it’s because she doesn’t want anyone to have to go through this journey alone ever again and BCNA can help with that. There are two ways you can help support BCNA. It’s not too late to start fundraising and it’s also not too late to give a one off donation to support all Australians affected by breast cancer.

Following feedback from the 2017 ride, we had adjusted the 63km course slightly to remove the small gravel section following the aid station. When approaching Newstead-Guildford Road from Midland HWY, the course will now turn LEFT. However, the aid station will still be located at John Powell Reserve approx. 500m ahead. Signage will outline the turn or continuation to the aid station. Please take care when returning to course from the aid station. There will be signage to direct you. Here you will make a RIGHT hand turn back onto Newstead-Guildford Road.
