“The Greens Bistro at the Bulahdelah Bowling Club was extremely welcoming also providing our riders and support crew with free dinner and soft drinks which was absolutely beautiful,” Bianca said.
“The Bulahdelah community was just incredible.” we had donations received from locals in the community,
“We had locals from the community come and donate money and ask what the cause was, which was so beautiful.”
“Overall, we had a fantastic trip and met fantastic and supportive people along the way,” Bianca said.
The 7 cyclist’s marathon was inspired by the i98FM Illawarra Convoy.

Bianca and her team were hoping to raise $25,000 from their marathon ride, but well and truly surpassed their own expectations, raising a total $43,089.75.
