As someone who’s about to do one himself, I know cyclists love a charity challenge as much as anyone. But today, October 7, one such challenge is taking place with a difference at the Holden Driving Centre on the Gold Coast. It’s not so much how far is being ridden, as how. A chaplain by the name of Andrew Hellinga is attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest distance cycled backwards in 24 hours. Currently the record sits at 180km. He’s aiming for 300km. Sounds crazy, but it’s totally legit. And it’s all to rise awareness and funds for child poverty.
If you’d like to find out more or make a donation here’s the link. And a short film featuring the man himself.
