Family spends a year on the bike

by Australian Road Research Board on January 16, 2019

Imagine spending a full year on your bike – riding around the entire country – alongside your immediate family!

Well that’s what Jozef and Diana Wolters, and their children Jack and Cloe, have been doing. They’ve been cycling around Australia on a fundraiser for Motor Neurone Disease research, and have been able to take a forensic look at road and cycling conditions around Australia as a result.

The Wolters visited ARRB recently on their travels.

Everything from the benefits of tubeless bike tyres to the perils of rumble strips on rural highways was covered in the Wolters' recent 30-minute presentation to ARRB staff in Melbourne.

They have spent the past 11 months cycling around Australia, starting in their home town of Bundaberg in Queensland, and taking in far north Queensland, the Northern Territory, WA, SA and Tasmania so far. They are scheduled to return home in late January 2019.

Already they have raised nearly $30,000. You can find out more about the family's fundraising efforts for MND here.
