Inside the Ride.
As we approach the big day of Escape The State on July 6th, we want to get to know our team of riders better. First up for this year is first time participant: Matthew Grear.
Matthew is one of three riders attempting to complete the full distance – 420 kilometres in 24 hours, going through 3 states of Australia – leaving at midnight near the base of Old Willunga Hill, in the middle of winter, and aiming for New South Wales.
Naturally, the preparation and training for this sort of event does not happen overnight. Each rider comes into this with different backgrounds in life and sport, or reasons behind signing up in the first place. So, here is just a small snapshot at Matthew’s.
