Riding for Cystic Fibrosis

Posted by

We are excited about sponsoring Walter van Praag on his Coughing4CF ride to raise awareness about Cystic Fibrosis! It kicks off from Devonport (TAS) in March, but training on our Aseako Bikes has already begun.

We've set up a page for the event -- if you're a keen rider, why not ride with Wally in and out of your city?

Why are we doing this?

Wally of Coughing the Distance fame is a real inspiration. In the past, he has managed to:

  • get a team across from Vietnam to Singapore through monsoonal rains and military Thai zones
  • climbed Mount Kinabalu in Borneo
  • cycled from Melbourne to Sydney
  • walked the El Camino across Spain 

All this he has done while operating on 45% lung capacity. 

We have been so inspired by Wally that after sponsoring him with Zoco Electric Bikes for his Vietnam to Singapore trip, we're now doing it again. This time, Walter and team will be using the Aseako Tourney Electric Bike.
