Cycling Brisbane to Sydney via Main Beach
Million Metres for MND
The MND community has taken to carbon and lycra from Brisbane to Sydney, no small feet! in fact it is 1,000,000 metres.
The MND Peloton rolled into Main Beach’s Tedder Avenue on Sunday morning and swamped the newly refurbished Crema Espresso.
First stop was Crema Espresso Tedder Ave Main Beach .. Waiting for the riders !! Thanks for the support !!

“A great article in the Brisbane Times about the ride. Thanks to everyone that contributed to make this happen.”
A bike ride from Brisbane to Sydney for motor neurone disease will not only raise awareness, but will also add to the memories of three young children whose parents have struggled with the fatal disease.
The Million Metres for MND, a 49-person bike ride that will set off from Brisbane on Sunday and arrive in Sydney next Sunday, was set up to pay tribute to two men diagnosed with MND, Scott Sullivan and Ian Davis, who challenged themselves to ride the same distance in 2013.
