As someone who lost 2 years bedridden to this condition and another 2 years regaining the best part of my health and fitness, I'm cycling a large chunk of Australia fundraising to give hope and help to the 250,000 people living with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and long covid across Australia.

The impact of ME/CFS can be devastating, leaving 25% of patients housebound or bedbound, with many people unable to work or participate in community life. People living with ME/CFS often feel invisible due to the unknown cause of the condition, lack of effective treatments and limited community awareness, leading many to 'go missing' from their own lives.

Funds raised go to Emerge Australia, the national body working to help people living with ME/CFS.

For this essential work to keep going, Emerge Australia relies on generous support from the community as they continue to lobby for increased public awareness and funding for biomedical research.

Please follow me on my journey as I plan to cycle 3000km around Australia in 6 weeks (but maybe 8 ;))
