Alastair Kleyn takes on Ride for Change to raise funds and awareness Pindari Mens Restoration House.

Ride for Change 2019!

Thanks for taking the time to read about the upcoming bike ride; Ride for Change 2019! https://www.mycause.com.au/page/200706/ride-for-change-2019.

In September (30/09/2019 – 04/10/2019) myself and 17 others will be riding for 5 days…over 700kms and 9000m elevation from Bunbury through Busselton, Nannup, Ferguson Valley, Waroona and finishing at Pindari to raise funds and awareness for Pindari Mens Restoration House. Pindari helps men who themselves are ready and determined to end their endless cycles of addiction, homelessness, poverty, chronic anxiety and other dysfunctional behaviours. Read more about Pindari here.

Pindari is very close to my heart as I am passionate about being another spoke in the wheel in helping restore men’s lives who are caught up in destructive life choices that keep them in a cycle of hardship.

Over the past years, I have seen how much positive change one person can make, not only to himself but to all the lives of the people he is connected too.

As an amateur bike rider, this bike ride (including all the early morning training in the dark) will really push my mental and physical boundaries, and this, in turn, helps me understand only a small amount of the mental, emotional and physical journey a person living in addiction needs to go through to be fully restored back into fullness of life.

Pindari is 100% privately funded and is open to anybody in the community who needs help, and more importantly wants help.

This bike ride fundraiser is very important to Pindari in raising vital funds to meet budgets and to provide the service needed to support men in reconnecting them with positive and fulfilling relationships.

It has been two years since I participated in the last Pindari bike ride fundraiser and it certainly pushed my limits. As this years ride is going to be even harder, I aim to double what I raised in the 2017 ride and I have set my 2019 target at $10,000.

The Route

This year is a 5-day event… but don’t let that fool you. This ride is over 700kms and 9000m elevation, similar in length and elevation to the last ride, with one less day.

The route provides a great mix of flats and climbs, undulations and some epic scenic routes.
