One of our Captain’s Riders has received a special acknowledgement in the NSW Parliament! This year Ryan completed his fourth Captain’s Ride – completing an astounding 744 kilometres of the Queensland route. Ryan has raised an incredible $11, 000 for the Steve Waugh Foundation in this year’s campaign, attributing to the over one million dollars raised by The Captain’s Ride Team. A huge congratulations to Ryan on his hard work over the past 4 years, and well done to all our riders who helped us put Rare Diseases on the map! #/docid/HANSARD-1323879322-109340/HANSARD-1323879322-109340 #stevewaughfoundation #thecaptainsride #puttingrarediseasesonthemap

Over 2,700 riders participated in this year’s L’Etape Australia. Amongst the thousands our very own Captain’s Riders Steve Waugh, Drew, Elaine and Marty. “We all finished together. Wow that was hard. They put us on the front of the start line with the pro riders like Esteban Chaves and Amanda Spratt.” - Marty “It was a bit nerve-tacking being on the start line. It’s an honour to do it for the Foundation” - Elaine #letapeaustralia #stevewaughfoundation

With temperatures hitting over 40 degrees during #thecaptainsride it was so important that our riders stayed hydrated. This was made possible by #kodanutrition and #camelbakaus providing hydration and keeping our riders fuelled for the challenge of The Captain’s Ride. @kodanutrition @camelbak @camelbakau @thurstonphoto #behindtheride #strengthofcharacter #spiritoftheride #puttingrarediseasesonthemap

Our riders have had just over a week to rest the legs, aloe-vera the sunburn and look back on the huge achievement they’ve completed. With scorching temperatures, fires and drought this was one of our most difficult Captain’s Rides. “The comradery definitely develops over the week. At the start of the week a lot of people don’t know each other, by the end of the week they become great mates. There are 4 fathers (Grant Recipient dads) today wearing the Captain’s Choice Jerseys, and we’ll find a way today to get there.” - Steve Waugh The Captain’s Ride 2019 is done! Congratulations to everyone on Tour and involved behind the scenes. #strengthofcharacter #thecaptainsride #puttingrarediseasesonthemap #thatsawrap #loanscomau #avjennings #toscafund #bloomsthechemist #canonaustralia #untitledfilmworks #toyota #linfox #havasred #entoure #cuore #koda #acme #duet

WiFi in & out, smoke & fires, we’re a little late with Day 5 and 6 Highlight reels! Day 5 – the shortest day of The Ride, a Boonah loop 75Km in and around Boonah with still plenty of hills and climbing to challenge weary legs and bodies. The Ride is about comradery & teamwork, we saw it in spades, needed now more than ever to get through the last 2 days. #thecaptainsride #untitledfilmworks #canonaustralia #loanscomau #avjennings #toscafund #bloomsthechemist
