ARMY aviators and former Royal
Marines are cycling more than
4500km across Australia to raise
money for injured Defence person-
nel.The 10-person team set off from
Perth on October
arrive in Sydney
in time for
the same route
with three mates
aviators are rid-
ing with Lt-Col
Royal Marine from the original ride.
"We're cycling roads some peo-
ple have never driven before," Lt-Col
The team is raising money from the
RSL-sponsored charity Mates4Mates
that provides welfare and treatment
programs to support physically or men-
tally injured Defence personnel and
"We have attracted huge support
for what we are doing from local com-
munities as we've made our way across
Australia," Lt-Col O'Donnell said.
"This has inspired the team to ride
harder and faster in order to match the
support expressed by everyone we've
met and talked to about Mates4Mates."
After crossing the Nullarbor, the
team will pass through Adelaide and
Melbourne before finishing in Sydney.
Lt-Col O'Donnell and his team
expect to average
150km a day to
finish the ride in
"The team feel
privileged to be
doing what they
are doing and
respect the fact
that they are fit
and able to com-
plete the 4500km
others, as a result
of their injuries or
illness, are unable
to do so," he said.
"This thought alone inspires
them further to overcome their per-
sonal physical and mental challenge of
cycling across Australia."
The original ride in 1982 was
dubbed Expedition Nutty Pom by the
Australian High Commission on hearing
the young marines were cycling across
Australia in the middle of summer.
