Dr Joel's $10,000 ride to Redcliffe

Posted: 4pm 13 May 2021

Dr Joel Dulhunty is back at Redcliffe Hospital after completing a marathon 42-day fundraising Ride for Research.

With his wife Naoni, the Director of Research and Medical Education, rode 2621kms from Cairns to Brisbane, via Cooktown and the Atherton tablelands.

It raised $10,800 and Dr Dulhunty will continue donating towards the $120,000 needed for a senior university researcher at Redcliffe Hospital for three years.

The start - Dr Joel Dulhunty in Cairns.

Highlights

Dr Joel said one of the highlights of the ride was the final day leaving Woodford in mist before a “beautiful blue sunny day” for the ride to Caboolture and then Redcliffe Hospital.

“After cycling the many bumpy backroads and busy highways, the cycleways of the southeast were such a pleasant change,” said Dr Dulhunty.

“Arriving at Redcliffe Hospital was a highlight too, meeting up again with friends and colleagues.”

Keep riding

Dr Dulhunty said there were physical and mental challenges on the route, but also mixed feelings as they neared the end.

“There is something exciting about life on the road and being in a new place at the end of each day,” he said, “towards the end we couldn’t help but look forward to getting home.

“However, our last day of riding was so magical and the journey so rewarding there was a thought at the back of my mind saying wouldn’t it be nice to just keep riding!”
