Louise and Matthew Ginn are riding 2,300km on a tandem bike from Ballarat Victoria to Uluru Northern Territory to help CareFlight save lives!

We are very excited to say we are planning on riding over 2000km on a tandem bike in 17 days with a goal to raise $200,000 for CareFlight. Our journey will begin in Ballarat, Victoria and we will ride up the centre of Australia and finish at Uluru, NT. On average we will be riding 135km a day with our biggest day being 180kms! We have a passion for riding and being in the great outdoors, but more so a passion to help others in need, hence why we have decided to combine these 2 passions and fundraise for an amazing cause like CareFlight. We would love you to be part of this adventure either by joining us virtually on our ‘Race to the rock Challenge’ or donating and helping us reach our fundraising target of $200,000.
