The “Kalamunda Bushies” are now two days into the Gibb River Challenge and hopefully having a good rest this evening with a few hundred KM’s under the belt. While we won’t have mobile data signal with them again till the end of the ride, we are receiving daily GPS check-in updates from the team. 

The pictures below are from Sunday morning (at 5 am) on the start line and are of the Riding Team and the Support team and vehicles.

Again, If youd like to help us reach our fund raising goal by donating to these very worthwhile causes, please go to the below links.

Kalamunda Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade shared Department of Parks and Wildlife, Western Australia's video.

Department of Parks and Wildlife, Western Australia
The speaker here, Mike Pasotti, started his career as a volunteer with the Kalamunda Bushfire Brigade, before moving onto the Department of Parks and Wildlife. This burning in the Helena Valley is crucial to protecting surrounding property.

Prescribed burning is essential in protecting the community from the threat of intense summer bushfires. Parks and Wildlife has achieved 238,000 hectares of prescribed burning since July, our best outcome in 29 years.

The Kalamunda Bushies are ready to hit the road in the next 24 hours for the 660km long Gibb Challenge which is a socially competitive team relay event along the Gibb River road from Derby to El Questro in the Kimberley heartland of Western Australia. 

The ride is to raise funds for The Royal Flying Doctor Service Western Australia (RFDS) and for our nominated charity the Breast Cancer Research Centre-WA.

Were almost there but if you have a few spare dollars to give, please help us reach our goal by donating to these very worthwhile causes.
