Saturday 24th to Monday 26 November  2012 will see Fit-Ability tandem cyclists riding as the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets Team in the 2012 Hartley Life Care Ability Cycle Challenge.

The Challenge will see the tandem cyclists ride from Canberra to Cooma on day 1, with  day 2 crunching gears up Mount Kosciuszko and riding home to Canberra on day 3.   The Ability Cycle Challenge covers 450 kilometres of hills, mountains and highways.

As one of fifteen cycle teams involved in the event,  the Fit-Ability Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets team is made up of dedicated pilots and stokers with disabilities who participate in the event each year to raise awareness and funds for Hartley Life Care.

If you would like more information, volunteer to ride to help stokers with their training,  or would like to support the team, contact info@fitability.org.au
