Taking part in The Tour is the pinnacle for every cyclist.
They train for months to get into perfect physical and mental condition, spend dozens of hours ensuring their bicycle is a highly-tuned and well-oiled machine, and they research every centimetre of the route to work out a peak-performance strategy.
This is The Tour de Dave and the sixth staging of the event is about to take place.
The Tour de Dave features 27 cyclists covering approximately 400-kilometres, and it‘s all in the name of charity – raising money for Endeavour Foundation, one of Australia‘s largest service providers for people with a disability.
The brains behind it is none other than 'Dave‘ himself – Dave Clarke, the manager of the 'Bike Hub' shop in Brisbane.
"There was a group of people who wanted to do more than a one-day ride, nothing fancy but something which lasted for a few days," said Dave.
"It‘s now the highlight of the calendar for most of us, and places are highly sought-after.
"It‘s named after me because I started it, but it‘s all about enjoying four days of cycling, seeing some beautiful scenery, enjoying the camaraderie, and raising that all-important money for Endeavour Foundation which means a lot to us."
The fund-raising for Endeavour Foundation plays such an important part of The Tour that Dave has donated a top-of-the-range GPS bike computer for the rider who raises the most money.
The Tour starts on April 30th at 389 Honour Ave in Graceville (the 'Bike Hub‘ shop) and the group cycle to Beaudesert for the night.
They cycle to Casino on May 1st, Murwillumbah on May 2nd, and arrive in Gold Coast on May 3rd.
There will be three support vehicles including a large orange and purple Endeavour van which the local residents won‘t be able to miss when it rolls into town.
Donations from the Tour de Dave will go towards helping people with a disability to enjoy a normal life in the everyday community.
Endeavour Foundation is celebrating its 60th anniversary throughout 2011.
