Graham's Challenge

Bangers to Bluff

My Challenge

I am delighted to be supporting Multiple Sclerosis News Zealand and MS Taranaki by participating in Bangers to Bluff 2024, where teams are challenged to drive a ‘banger’ from Auckland to Bluff, on roads less travelled.

To spread awareness of MS, I will head out at the crack of dawn, ahead of the rally bangers, to cycle as far as possible before getting caught (weather permitting!). Last year this was between 20-40km per day.

Who will get furthest? The ‘banger’ or the bike?


In my early days of diagnosis of Primary Progressive MS, I was told the importance of exercise to take control of this condition. “Use it or lose it” the Neurological Physiotherapists said. So it really was a no-brainer, neurological condition and all, to pursue cycling as my exercise vehicle.

My reasons for attempting this are 3 fold; to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis, to raise money for the combined Bangers to Bluff charities and, lastly, quite simply, because exercise is medicine.

Thank you to my Sponsors
