John Bell
About Me

Age: 63

Bike: Wilier Triestina

Motivation:  Something I can do. To be effective in helping others in need.

Inspiration: Andrew Johnston – Heard him speak of this ride a long time ago and now it’s a reality

Why Help MADCOW? To achieve its goal of helping those in need and less fortunate than most of us.


Most challenging aspect: The cold, especially during winter training rides

Funniest Moment: Laughed when Jake Lovell urged the group to greater speed along Red Tank Road, earlier in the year.

Interesting Training Partner: Lewis Gillett – Full of life, vitality and cheerfulness – ‘adds’ to every ride

Favourite bakery: Strathfieldsaye Bakery (nice and cosy)

The Ride

Distance Goal: Full distance from Streaky Bay

Biggest Fear: My body not coping with what it needs to do each day

Most Looking Forward to: Riding across SA where I spent my childhood. A tailwind (hopefully) to do the full distance each day.

After the Ride: Seeing my family and catching up with their news
