Liberty bangs the Gong…

Aussie contractor shows its caring side.

Gong RideA 10-strong team of cyclists from Liberty Industrial set off to conquer the Sydney to Wollongong ride, a 90 km trek through the southern suburbs of Sydney and eventually into “The Gong”. The crew was made up of employees from the Clyde Refinery decommissioning project in Sydney, New South Wales.

Starting in St Peter’s park on a Cool Spring morning the riders followed the picturesque Eastern coast line, through Botany Bay over the Captain cook bridge, through the Royal National park, around the sea cliff bridge, and into Wollongong.

With head winds gusting up to 35 km per hour the guy’s battled on being forced to lean into the wind to simply stop them from being blown of their bikes. The hilly terrain took its toll on the riders as the mid-morning sun hit 25 degrees. All 10 of the riders successfully completed the course and retired to the Towradgi Beach hotel for copious amounts of liquid antiseptic before the support crew assisted them in getting back to Sydney.

The annual event is organised by Multiple Sclerosis Australia and raises millions of dollars for the cause, Liberty finished up on the day with contribution of $2500.00.
