It’s 2,500km from Wollongong to Cairns. It’s a long drive, let alone ride – but that’s exactly what one University of Wollongong student is about to attempt. EJ Macdonald plans to pedal the distance in October and along the way raise money for the Children’s Medical Research Institute. Macdonald, a triathlete, has been training for months, three-times a day, and she says she’s ready for the challenge.
