‘Glass half-full’ rider ready to go

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth -

SOUTH Perth’s Simon Everett will be push­ing the ped­als this month as he gears up for the 2015 Hawai­ian Ride for Youth.

It will be the 51year-old’s third ride and he said he had done thou­sands of kilo­me­tres in train­ing.

“I’ve al­ways been a rider,” he said. “And this is a great char­ity so it is worth it.”

The event be­gan in 2003 and has since raised more than $10,000,000 to sup­port Youth Fo­cus to as­sist young West Aus­tralians.

The ride will be held from March 24-28 and the rid­ers will cover more than 700km on their way from Al­bany to Perth.

Everett said he was a “glass half-full” type of per­son and he was look­ing for­ward to the ride.

“It is al­ways fun and you get a lot of en­cour­age­ment from the group,” he said.
