New Sponsors aboard!


Jans is sponsoring the OzRockInn fun(d)raiser for Friday night 27 July! Special thanks to Rolf for organising that, it means we will all certainly have a good time! Jans is a lightly spiced dutch herbal liqueur dubbed the Friendship Drink. I am sure it is good for Cystic Fibrosis!


And welcome aboard to VPS (a subsidary of the Australian Jacon Group), they are providing a support vehicle for Vietnam! It means we can concentrate on the traffic and the road and not carry heavy loads of gear! Awesome. This takes an enormous load of my mind! We just need to look after driver and petrol costs.

Yeah! Bikes arrived! Now we can start training and equipping...

Putting the bike together was easy, now I need to figure out the shoes and cleats! Rode it to work today and it was fun to ride too.

Keeping you posted!

Vietnamese and Chinese postcards


When riding in Europe for The Great COFE our humble team was often mistaken for a rich group of cyclists. In fact we were self funded and poor! Althought we did have a wonderful support vehicle  we still shared the fuel costs! Primarrily we are all out for a good time and to promote CF awareness.

This time we will have postcards and business cards in different languages to make sure we do not get treated like rich tourists!!

Let's hope it works!

Rising Dragon Palace Hotel

The Rising Dragon Palace Hotel in Hanoi for hosting us in Hanoi for a week at cost price! It is where we will meet before starting the ride. The patient and friendly staff there has dealt with DHL and Vietnamese Customs to help us clear parcels mailed to us - a next to impossible task!

KOOLIT - ALOE VERA


KOOLIT: The Ultimate Cooling Gel. Koolit is the ultimate Cooling gel for heat affected areas. Utilising the best Nature has to offer with a synergy of Four Pure Healing Essential Oils blended into healing and moisturising Aloe vera. This multi- purpose gel can be used for heat affected areas, insect bites, aftershave balm and waxing relief. OUR TEAM WILL BE ROAD TESTING THIS PRODUCT as we are sure to have heat affected areas

Be Parochial buy Local


Derrico Cycles is my preferred bicycle shop in Devonport Tasmania that has always given me great bicycle support. They have donated time and provided discounts on bicycle bits and pieces for the bikes not only for Viet2Sing but also on previous Cystic Fibrosis missions. They even put my propaganda, books and DVD on their shelves! They have looked at the Zoco Electric Bikes and helped me with essential advice, tools and fine tuning in preparation for this 5000km Vietnam to Singapore bicycle ride.

Devonport Hash House Harriers Support



DHASH has supported me with every adventure to date! Kinabalu, Sydney to Melbourne, Paris to Istanbul. OnOn! Running Hash is probably one of my favourite past time activities, keeping me fit and well in an entertaining way.

Pentax Geo-tagging Camera for Ride



C.R. Kennedy has supported us by sponsoring the team with a GPS enabled shockproof and waterproof rugged travel camera which can not only geotag photos, it can actually log  our ride each day!

Jans the Friendship Drink

Jans - the Friendship Drink - was the major sponsor for the OzRockInn fun(d)raiser which was held on Friday night 27 July!


Special thanks to Rolf the Australian importer for organising that, it means we will all certainly have a good time! Jans is a lightly spiced dutch herbal liqueur dubbed the Friendship Drink. I am sure it is good for Cystic Fibrosis! Jans has also arranged the support vehicle for Vietnam!!

To buy Jans in Australia check with your local bottle shop or order on-line [here].

300K Equipping the bikes


300K has come to the party by financing the Zoco Electrical Bike upgrades! That means high quality tires and bicycle computers for all bikes!


Innovation, creative thinking and technical know-how are just the beginning of what 300K Enterprises can provide you. It is in 300K's DNA to develop products and services which will assist your organisation to work SAFER, FASTER and SMARTER.

Kentish Funerals giving us a Rest



Kentish Funerals has funded 10 hotel nights for the ride, for a well deserved rest along the way!

WA Wishing Well Clinic Wishing us Well




Read all about it! The Wishing Well Clinics have sponsored us for 15 square team meals and helped with crucial translations!

Zoco Electric Bike

Zoco has sponsored Coughing4CF with brand new bicycles for the team to cycle the 5000kms through Asia!

www.zocoelectricbike.com.au


Zoco makes a very different electric bicycle to the usual electric bike. The Zoco Electric Bike uses a central drive system and which does not run from the hub! This means the electric motor utilises the gears and means you have standard wheels on the bike. Another innovation that makes this bicycle stand out is the NuVinci Continuously Variable gearing system. Having ridden three different electric bikes over the past year I believe this bicycle is an awesome choice for our Vietnam to Singapore 5000 km bike-ride. The bike averages about 20km/hr and will happily go for 50+ kms on one charge.

The previous adventure!
