Postie pilgrimage to make tracks

A pilgrimage of old iconic Australian ‘postie bikes’ led by locals will make tracks this September to raise funds and awareness for ‘low survival’ cancers.
The Postie Bike Pilgrimage of 12 new and experienced riders will travel about 500kms from Mount Wallace, Victoria, to the Homebush Hotel in Penarie, outback NSW.
One of the ride’s organisers, Callum Leemon of Kyneton, said the group had exceeded expectations in fundraising nearly $8000 for the cause.
“Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer. We want to make a difference while having a little fun,” he said.
The Postie Bike Pilgrimage will have six support people making the journey too, including Callum’s father who battled bowel cancer and has been part of the ride’s inspiration.
Fellow organiser Dean Beattie’s mother-in-law also survived breast cancer.
Together Callum and Dean took part in the 2013 and 2015 Mystery Box Rally to raise about $9000 for Cancer Council Victoria. The Postie Bike Pilgrimage is their own initiative raising funds for the same cause.
The groups has had support from several local businesses including Woodend Building Design, Sign Obsession and Lachlan Fleming Constructions.
