Why am I taking part

I am riding Tour de Office 2017 to raise awareness about the dangers of prolonged sitting in our workplace and to raise funds for Youngcare. Right now, over 7,000 young Australians (under the age of 65) with 24/7 care needs are living in aged care facilities around the country. 70% of Australians sit for more than 8 hours a day. The human body was designed to move and this is a chance to get out of our chairs and reduce our risk of chronic diseases like Diabetes Type 2, some types of cancer, heart disease and obesity. Youngcare is committed to providing choice in care and housing options for young Australians with 24/7 care needs. Youngcare believes aged care is no place for a young person, and that every young person deserves a young life, regardless of their care needs.

Stopped at 30 minutes as planned but didn't select finished ride so the counter went for a few more minutes affecting my average speed. Avg speed was 24km+ and distance was 11.41km - i'm happy with that

Thanks supporters! I did pound it and collapsed on carpet to rest for 5 minutes after that. Felt like taking a break after 5-10 minutes into it but pushed on instead and picked up cadence. The gears weren't functioning well so I was limited to a few light gears that also slipped.
