Riley's Big Ride from Melbourne to Adelaide

Hi my name is Riley and I am 7 years old. (8 years old as of August 2019) My Pop and I LOVE to Ride our bikes together and I want to share with you our plans for our big adventure.

In 2017 I was lucky enough to meet one of my hero’s Ed Pratt on his journey riding his unicycle around the world. I was 5 years old at the time and had the chance to ride my bike beside him for a few km’s in the pouring rain.

Pop and I were inspired to start planning our own adventure so here we are now. In March 2020 Pop and I plan to ride from Melbourne Victoria to our home town Adelaide South Australia.

In September, Pop, Mum and I had a meeting at the Little Heroes Foundation to discuss how we could work together to raise funds for them. We got to meet Anna Meares and Chris McDermott and the team to tell them our plans. They were very helpful and encouraging and it was fantastic to meet them and hear the ideas that they had.


Riley, with the help of his Nan, has created a blog to keep you up to date with his training progress and planning in the lead up to his big adventure in March 2020! Be sure to follow him on his journey.
