Harry's Experience on the 2022 Pipeline Challenge
"My name is Harry and I attended the 2022 Pipeline Challenge. When I heard about the Pipeline Challenge, I believed that it was something that would give me the opportunity to learn what it would be like riding a bike over a long distance. I did not know how much hard work I would have to put in, until the first day of the event, when I got on the bike.
I had been second guessing myself saying that this would be hard, which it was, I got used to it in no time. It was fun riding a bike for the first time in years and getting to experience riding with other people with the same goal. It was hard work but pushing a pedal for five days was worth every second. The experience of completing the Pipeline Challenge was fascinating and unbelievable. It made me want to ride day after day on the journey to Perth from Kalgoorlie, it was so fun, and I managed to ride 42 km in one day, which I could never do in my life, but I did and that gave me a sense of accomplishment.
The people I met on this trip were so kind and are people that I respect for doing their part to contribute and raise money towards Youth Futures Nest Program. I was also given an opportunity to speak to all the Pipeline Challenge participants, about the Anchor Point school program. After the whole challenge was finished, I felt an urge to do the Pipeline Challenge again in the future and that I felt like I was really relaxed from the trip. This is something in my life that I would do again or refer others to do it with Anchor Point or with my own group of friends.”
