The Ride to Conquer Cancer Brisbane 2013

Over the weekend my brother Lachlan and 1235 passionate riders took up the challenge to ride over 200kms over two days in the fight to Conquer Cancer. They set off  early Saturday morning riding from UQ at St Lucia to Wivenhoe Dam, stayed the night there and then rode back to UQ on Sunday morning. Their  early start Sunday morning was delayed by heavy fog but that didn't seem to dampen the spirits of any of the riders.
This was Lachlan's 3rd year fundraising for The Ride to Conquer Cancer

I would like to Thank the following people and companies who sponsored Lachlan, on behalf of our sister Megan and our family. Your generosity helped Lachlan raise $5480.00 for QIMR
Brad and Shona Tully
Tracey Newman
Leanne McAlpine
McAlpine Family Trust
Lyn and Trevor Kidd
Bill Krause
Fricke Family

We are so thankful for your support and you have all contributed to the 4.2 million dollars raised which goes towards cancer research at the QIMR

Here are some photos of Lachlan from the weekend.

 Buckingham Palace

I just had to have a photo with the London Bobbies outside the Tower of London

you can't go to Paris without stopping by this little tower

Hall of Mirrors in the Palace in Versailles


French Alps, and what the reason for our holiday. Wayne and friends cycling some of the Tour de France routes, us ladies were so exhausted driving up that mountain :)

Cadel Evens just about to throw us his cap on his warm up ride before the start of the Tour de France in Annecy, It was fantastic of him to acknowledge us Aussies, (even though the Canadian with us caught his cap) it made our day.

and they are off ...the start of the Tour de France in Annecy, I didn't get very good photos as they were gone in the blink of an eye.

I am going to scrap my holiday photos using Project Life, yes I am taking the plunge into PL as I took over 3000 photos, I won't scrap them all but I want to scrap alot, so this will be the quickest way to get them all in an album. I will scrapbook my very favourites traditional.
