The countdown has begun. As you may have heard, it’s not long before Mark Alfred, myself and about twenty five plumbers and electricians head off on a lengthy journey to raise money for beyondblue.
The best part is you get to watch our progress along the way as we're tracked by simTRAC and as we post updates via Twitter and Instagram. All updates will appear on this one page.
Also appearing on the map will be three-time Bathurst winner, Steven Richards, son of seven-time bathurst winner Jim Richards. Richo is taking time out from competing in the Australian Carrera Cup Championship to join us on the not-so-bathurst journey.
We’ll be travelling two thousand kilometres from Melbourne to the Gold Coast on Postie Bikes. These Postie Bikes are all ex-Australia Post. They travel no faster than 80 km/h at best. It'll be both a load of fun and quite likely a test of endurance for some of us.

The tracking page will include weather conditions (we're preparing for the worst), live monitoring of our position on the map, Twitter updates and photos from the guys on the road via Instagram.
