Jack Thompson, Ultra Cyclist – The Munda Biddi Dreaming Project

WestCycle is proud to be supporting “Munda Biddi Dreaming” – a truly inspirational project presented by digital wellbeing & mental health platform Oqea in partnership with multiple-world record holder, Guinness World Records recipient & extreme athlete, Jack Ultra Cyclist.

Jack is a global advocate for mental health and through is high profile his vision is to create a greater awareness, so we as a community can make a significant difference.

 Munda Biddi Dreaming is Jack’s ultimate DREAM – a 1,067km Ultra Cycling World Record Attempt along the world’s longest continual bike route – the Munda Biddi Trail where Jack will embark upon a perpetual ride against “a clock that never stops”.

Jack will commence his ride in the early hours of Friday 24 November and conclude his world record attempt in the seaside hamlet of Albany, to a welcome of celebrations, on Sunday 26 November.

 Jack and the Munda Biddi Dreaming Team will embark upon a road-trip headed northbound visiting schools with the intention of changing the lives over 5,000 school kids and communities throughout WA’s Southwest. 

As someone who has learnt to manage his own battles with depression, Jack will share his invaluable toolkit of bringing purposeful DREAMS into reality, raise awareness of mental health issues – particularly among adolescents – and promote his message – that, given the right support network and headspace, anything is possible!
