Happy Friday Frienday! Today's shout out is a little different to what we'd usually feature on this blog. We love South Australian businesses and we like show our support for them in whatever way we can. But today's Friday Frienday is not a business, it's a cause.

"Cycling For Simone" is a fundraiser in honour of former record breaking jockey Simone Montgomerie, who sadly passed away in 2013 after falling from her horse. A group of family, close friends and other supporters will ride from Streaky Bay in South Australia all the way to Darwin, to raise money for the National Jockeys Trust. The odometer will hit over 3000km, with the team having already departed.

The National Jockeys Trust supports the families of the fallen and seriously injured riders around Australia and have supported the Montgomerie family, who now want to give something back. 

The trek will be done on bicycle - with one exception! Scott Leckey, pictured above, will be riding one of our EcoCaddies along the way. We're honoured to be involved in such a great cause and are proud to sponsor the team on their journey. 

We wish them the best of luck on their journey. To find out how you can support this great cause, visit their website listed above.
