OUR COMPLETED JOURNEY ... WE DID IT!!!

 

>ACTUAL SUPER RIDE MAP WITH MILEAGE ... measured from the School Accommodation Site

 

Through this experience we encourage everyone within every Special School community across Victoria - students, staff, parents, siblings, grandparents, school councillors, EVERYONE - to get outside, get active and participate in our Aussie Super Ride.  Along with School Communities we will be joined by Victoria Police, Rotarians and Friends of Blackwood who will also help us explore and discover Australia. 

So turn off the screens, go outside & start adding up your kilometres to help us travel around Australia.

How is the Mileage of your ride/roll/run/walk calculated?

10 X students + 3 X staff enjoy a 10km ride = TOTAL DISTANCE 130km

10 X students + 5 X staff enjoy a 1km walk - TOTAL DISTANCE 15km

If you use stationary bikes OR wind/bike trainers, please send through an estimated TOTAL distance for your group if accurate distances cannot be measured.

If participation is through rolling and a student is being assisted by someone else, please include the distance X 2. If the student is rolling themselves, the distance is individual.

Where do we submit our number of participants, total mileage, images & footage?
