The MS Brissie to the Bay bike ride is back and with it came an unlikely participant. Find out who’s riding 100km for a great cause.
For over twenty years, the MS Brissie to the Bay bike ride has been a fixture in the Brisbane cycling scene, drawing thousands of expert and amateur cyclists each year who put pedal to the metal for a good cause: to raise money for the thousands of Aussies living with multiple sclerosis.
This year, the Brissie to the Bay bike ride event gained an unlikely participant: Q Paint’s own Tas Moulis.
Tas, who hasn’t ridden a bike since it had training wheels – okay, not quite, but it’s been twenty years, so close enough!—and doesn’t even own a bike (without training wheels), will be joining the Neo Pizza team of riders (helmed by Mr Neo Pizza, himself, Anthony Conias) on June 23rd to raise much needed funds for the fight against MS.
But wait, there’s more! Though Brissie to the Bay famously offers four different courses – the training wheel-friendly 10km trail around the Brisbane Riverside, the esy-peasy 25km ride to Balmoral and back, the burn-inducing 50km slog to Wynnum and back, or the Tour de France of bike rides: the 100km to Wellington Point and back-we thought Tas would opt for the ten-kayer; he’s probably forgotten what a bicycle looks like, after all.
To our surprise, however, Tas decided to go the whole nine yards – or 100km, rather – and take on the Wellington Point course! If he doesn’t know how to ride a bike before he starts, we’re guessing he’ll surely know how after 100km!
Tas also inspired another Q Painter to take on the Wellington Point course for a good cause – James Gooley has also signed up to join the Neo Pizza team on Brissie to the Bay bike ride day.
To show our support of Tas and James, and their very ambitious goal to ride 100km, we donated $5,000 to the kitty and we’re also pledging to donate 5% from every residential job (up to a maximum of $250) to help Tas, James and the Neo Pizza team reach their goal to raise $50,000 for MS.
