Robbie McEwen to be the special guest, says Mr Muir

Matt Muir, the owner of Yamba Shores Tavern, might be all smiles, but he told that there is a hard, long path ahead of his upcoming challenge.

He is taking in charge of a ride from Adelaide to Uluru later in June as part of Smiling for Smiddy challenge that raises money for cancer research.

The drive is named in honor of Adam Smiddy (triathlete), who passed away from melanoma. And, Mr Muir stated that he is targeting to raise $ 8000 for the cause. Previous year, he collected $ 4000 for Careflight in a 1 day ride between the Toowoomba and the Gold Coast and this year set him to go more than this.

Mr Muir told that he is very passionate when it comes to riding and he was looking for a challenge this year and then he heard about this Smiddy ride. This is the very first time when he tackled anything like this, to ride two-hundred kilometers a day for 9 days - to do it would be a very tough challenge.

But before he goes through the 1800 kilometers of cycling over 9 days, he is turning in an event to begin the fundraising. On 30th April, Saturday, the Tavern will play host to a fundraising dinner, along with the $80 ticket including drinks, dinner, as well as great raffle prizes along with a well known guest speaker from the cycling world.

He told that he is really very proud that his good buddy Robbie McEwen would be their special guest of the evening.
