Go for Broke would not be possible without the great work of committed individuals, organisations and volunteers.
Ed is a bike riding tragic. His wife is always telling him he spends more time on his bike than with her. Likes to race crits & state handicaps occasional mixed up with some gran fondos. Often seen abusing taxi drivers and wayward drivers while commuting in and out of the city from home.
Worst Bike Accident
Fell into a passing HiLux doing 80. Finished up in the middle of the road with a bike in two pieces, a small graze and sore shoulder (from hitting the car’s wing mirror).

Jo’s first bike was a trusty mountain bike. Great mountain bike but Jo hated the thought of people overtaking her all the time. Competitive, never! Suddenly a new road bike made it’s way into the Christmas stocking and she never looked back. Her husband Richard (who’s also helping with this years ride) and Jo ride regularly together. AKA the Dynamic Duo. Jo and Richard now ride with a regular group that has formed organically after many bike tours and a mutual love of social riding.
Jo loves seeing the country from her bike. Her teenage boys think that mum and dad are mad, “Why do you get up so early on a Sunday”.
Worse Bike Accident
On a ride from Sydney to Bowral, Jo and a riding friend were trying to catch a peloton. While working hard to reach the bunch Jo clipped her friends’ rear wheel and came off, sliding across 2 lanes of traffic. Luckily there where no cars in her path. Jo walked away with a few bruises with the groups’ support car coming to her aid.
