With the Perth Bike Week and Bike Ed taking place at St Bennies, here's a story that may inspire us to get outside and go for a ride.

St. Benedict's Year Five student, Alexander, has just completed Tour de Gracetown on 3/11/18 raising money for the Ladybird Cancer Foundation. Alex was the youngest rider to ever take part, giving up his weekends to train really hard in the lead up to the 60km hilly terrain ride. He rode alongside Australian and Italian professionals who were also supporting this great charity.

Thanks for this little bio on Alexander - I imagine he will be inspiring lots of others. If it hasn't already happened, his story combined with the Bike Week activities at St Bennie's could make a good story in the local press. It's a great way to inspire others to increase their active travel and a great way to earn more points too!
