In July 2010, a group of postie bike riders are riding from Adelaide to Darwin along the Birdsville track to raise money for the Royal Flying Doctors Service.
It is a challenge, an adventure and a very good cause. Our postie bike group is busy preparing bikes, getting donations, planning our food selling event at the Flerieau Motorbike Fest March 19-20 and dreaming of the outback night sky. We are excited about our journey and hope to get heaps of sponsors to support the work of the Royal Flying Doctors Service.
Here's what RFDS has to say: "Every day in many ways the Royal Flying Doctor Service takes the finest care to Australia's furthest corners so that anyone who lives, works or travels in remote and rural Australia can enjoy the best of health. Using the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology, delivered by a dedicated team of professionals, ... we deliver both 24-hour emergency services and everyday essential health care. The service employs a range of health, aviation, marketing, communications, administration and HR professionals. Find out what it's like to work for the RFDS and seek career opportunities with us. We are a not-for-profit organisation. Supported by the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments, we also receive generous donations from the community and corporations, find out more about our partners and how you can support us."
