Shane Miller thankful for community support after riding to raise money for cancer research

Shane Miller says he is grateful for the community support after completing his 250-kilometre bicycle trek from Kingoonya to Wirrulla and raising more than $13,000 for cancer research.

Mr Miller took to the saddle in honour of the late Glen 'Sharky' Kelsh and Peter 'Frog' Holmes, while also raising money for the Cure Cancer Australia Foundation.

The five-day adventure ended when Mr Miller crossed the finish line at the Wirrulla Hotel on Saturday, which was followed by a celebration that night with live music and an auction to add to the fundraising effort.

Mr Miller was joined by local children on the final day of the journey and when he crossed the line he was greeted by cheering community members.

Mr Miller said he appreciated the support he received throughout the adventure.

"Crossing the line was a pretty good feeling and lots of local kids rode in with me which was good to see," he said.

"It was fantastic to receive such huge community support in Wirrulla.

"Everybody did their bit and when I came in the entire night was organised - thanks to those who helped out, played live music and donated items for the auction."

Mr Miller said they still needed to do a final count, but it was estimated that between $13,000 and $15,000 had been raised for cancer research.

Mr Miller said the plan was to do 50kms per day, but after pushing out to more than 80kms on each of the first two days it made the last three days easier.

He said he was feeling refreshed after taking a few days to recover, and could look back on a memorable week.

"I enjoyed the whole journey and enjoyed the company of Andrew Patterson, who rode the whole way with me," Mr Miller said.

"There were harder bits of terrain that we had to encounter, but overall it was a good ride."

Mr Miller's goal is to make this an annual event.

"I am happy to do it each year, and hopefully we can get more people on board next time and maybe even do a relay event," he said.

"I want to keep it going and perhaps we can do it earlier in the year, around April or May."
