Real Aussie Sheds is sponsoring another team for this year’s MS Sydney to Gong ride. Tackling the big hills between Sydney and Wollongong in Real Aussie style for the fourth year in a row, the group has now grown to a massive 25 members all committing their time and energy to the gruelling hills for a fantastic cause.
For 37 years, tens of thousands of cyclists have endured the course in this legendary ride to help raise funds for people living with multiple sclerosis, an incurable and devastating neurological condition which effects 25,000 people Australia wide. The ride will take place on the Sunday 4th November with participants travelling through the Royal National Park past Stanwell Tops, along the spectacular Sea Cliff Bridge, then along the coast through to a backdrop of sun, sand and surf in Wollongong, spanning a total distance of 82km.
The team train hard throughout the year to give it their best attempt, and every contribution makes a difference. John Saunig from Real Aussie Sheds began this journey as a way to pay tribute to his late brother who passed away at just 61 years of age from Motor Neuron Disease - a debilitating neuron degradation diagnosis which also has cure, and often affects people in similar ways to MS.
John, owner of Real Aussie Sheds, rallied friends and members of his local church group to support the cause.
"I want to make a difference, this is the most common neurological disease affecting young Australians and there is no cure."
