Adam Georgelin completes 120km journey
ALONG with his team of supporters – friends, family and people who had been touched by his story – Adam Georgelin recently finished his three day wheelchair journey along the Great Victorian Rail Trail (GVRT).
Arriving at 3.15pm, Adam rode in on his wheelchair and was relieved to have made it to his final destination for the Push On Wheelchair Challenge.
While he was tired, he and wife Tammy were greeted warmly by locals and received plenty of support for his journey.
Adam began his threeday journey in Tallarook, where he trekked along the GVRT to his first night of accommodation at the Yea Football Netball Club.
Early the next morning – what Adam describes as “the hardest” day of all – they began their ride towards Merton, where they would stay for their second night.
Waking up on the third and final morning of his journey, the group were ready to roll.
After arriving in Mansfield, he reflected on the trip and how hard some elements of it had been.
Adam said that while he enjoyed it, he wouldn’t do it again.
“It’s not a challenge if you can do it again,” he said.
