There was an air of anticipation and excitement for the 43 riders due to commence the inaugural Geraldton to Perth route on Tuesday morning. This peloton included 14 first time riders, nine support staff and volunteers, many experienced campaigners and the Hawaiian Ride for Youth stalwart Graham Iddles who has ridden in every event since inception.
Day one of this year’s Hawaiian Ride for Youth went well for all on the coastal route.
The Hawaiian Ride for Youth journey has begun! In the early hours of this morning, riders, support crew, friends and family assembled at City Beach to load bikes and buses in preparation for the five days ahead. After farewells and photos, four Buswest buses, 16 Budget rentals and 4 Audi’s travelled down to Albany, and for the first time, up to Geraldton.
