Last month the determined Reef Rode RAFE (Ride Against Greenhouse Emissions) team arrived home from their successful 4,000km journey from Ballarat to Port Douglas. Along the way they raised funds and awareness of the need to protect Australia's Great Barrier Reef and broke the lap record at the RACQ Technology Challenge in Maryborough, Queensland.
Beginning this weekend the team from Reef Rode RAGE embark on a 3,996km, 10-day mission to pedal their energy efficient vehicle (EEV) from Ballarat to the Great Barrier Reef and Port Douglas. They're also taking on the RACV Energy Breakthrough's sister event in Maryborough, Queensland - the RACQ Technology Challenge on September 13 - 14. Why are they called 'R.A.G.E'? Ride Against Greenhouse Emissions. Last week, RACV Energy Breakthrough reporter Katie Harris, spoke with Team Manager, Tony Davidson, to find out about Reef Rode RAGE and their adventure.
