A long, long ride

Jill and Elly having a well-earned rest at Tallangatta

Many of us at MEFL ride bikes to work, but our Project Support Officer Elly Pattison outdid us all recently by pedalling from Melbourne to Canberra in the zoo2zoo ride. That’s 840km in six days, with some big hills along the way! Even better, Elly’s mum Jill rode with her.

Thirteen riders completed the Melbourne-Canberra ride, and 34 rode the second leg from Canberra to Dubbo. Altogether both groups raised almost $50,000 for the Black Dog Institute.

You can still make a general donation to the zoo2zoo ride, or support Elly and Jill’s personal fundraising effort.
