I am loving pushing myself and seeing how far I can ride and really want to achieve something quite difficult.
I have to be careful though as having a young family it also has to be something quite achievable and not too costly.
Anyone have any suggestions on events or charity events that I should put on my bucket list??
Lots of options!

Steve these look very cool :-)
Just something I came across some time ago and thought it was just that little different!
Don't say that Tri... word, you know its been said that if you swim or run either side of using a bicycle then your not cycling LOL Seriously, you have the tripple ability so it sounds just right for you!
Audax is a very worthy consideration. It's not just an SA or Australian thing. It's worldwide and if you complete these challenges you are eligible to enter the 'Olympics of Audax events' the Paris-Breast-Paris randoneur event held every four years (in France of course).
There are Audax members on AC (there is even a group).
The funny thing with Australia, compared to the UK, is we don't have nearly as many sportif events as they do. Looking through the pages of Cycling Plus there are hundreds listed every season for all levels of rider. I guess it is something about the size of the country as well
JDRF Ride to cure diabetes.
It has fundraising requirements though, but a very worthwhile cause.
Thanks Juz very good cause but I was hoping for something longer lol I know I am mad!
THat looks awesome DD!!!!
Yeah profile looks a bit flat between km 160 and km 230 ;-)
Its slightly longer and a bit more climbing than 3Peaks and you are never more than 25km from the CBD so can pull bail pretty easily.
Just need a bit more daylight and some calm sunny weather and I'm going to give it a burl. The biggest issue is finding bakeries/food shops along the route.
$50 on bakery treats and coffee! That's a lot of dough for some dough.
It is 280km and several gazillion kilojoules, so you'd need to be stuffing ya gob with bakery goodness just to keep going :-)
Think you would need more than $50 :-)
