Mitch Anderson breaks 12 hour distance World Record!
On Monday the 13th of March in Melbourne, Dr. Mitch Anderson set off around a street circuit in near perfect weather conditions in order to break the 12 hour distance World Record on his Trinity Advanced Pro. The day wasn't just about the record attempt but for Mitch it was about raising funds for the Craig Percival Memorial Trust to help raise awareness for the large number of Australians silently suffering from depression. The funds raised will also help to provide for the late Craig Percival's bereaved family.
Mitch set off right on schedule at 7am and held a sensational average of over 40kmph for the entire 12 hour effort. As well as his two Trinity Advanced Pro bicycles Mitch also wore the new Pursuit helmet for the duration of the ride.
Friends and family gathered throughout the course of the day and especially in the last hour where he was cheered loudly each time as he crossed the finishing straight on Boundary St.
The total distance Mitch covered according to his GPS computer was 501.6kms in 12 hours and the effort raised thousands for the Craig Percival Memorial Trust and his family. There's still time to donate at: http://craigpercivalmemorialtrust.com/
