Description

Climb Every Mountain

The path to success is never straight, and those one percenters, the marginal gains, all the small things, they add up to make the difference between suc​ceeding or not. ​Whether you're striving for success in your professional life, wanting to get out and do epic sh*t in your personal life or setting lofty goals for the bike, this event is a chance to get inspired for 2019!

Hosted by Olympian and commentator Katey Bates, join us for a hot breakfast and coffee to meet some like minded peers and hear from a panel of legends, ​including Chief Chick Jordana Blackman, Aussie cycling hero Loren Rowney and Media guru Jane Aubrey.

They'll share the ups and downs of their life and career, and share their strategies to tackle every challenge, embrace the stumbles, and come out on top.​.. or at least come out with a smile on their face and some good stories to tell!


Our host:

Katey Bates

An Olympian and world champion cyclist, Katey loves her cycling like Eskimos love their ice.

Fuelled by a passion for two wheels, she scaled the heights of international cycling. Her stacked results sheet is highlighted by winning a coveted rainbow jersey with world championship victory in the points race, Commonwealth Games GOLD at back to back games, and a green and gold National champions jersey on the road.

Katey is one of only two Australian women to represent Australia at the Olympics in both track and road cycling, and since retirement, works in broadcasting, commentating on major international cycling events such as the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, World Championships and the Tour Down Under.

Our panel:

Jordana Blackman

Chief Chick at Chicks Who Ride Bikes, Jordana was drawn to cycling after a shock cancer diagnosis in her 20s.

While in recovery, she saw a poster for a Ride To Conquer Cancer event at her local cafe, and decided to challenge the 200km in 2 day ride.... but there was just one problem.

After buying her first bike (and falling off it on more occasions that she’d like to remember), she rode her first charity bike event alongside her partner and 2,000 other fundraisers – each of which had been touched in some way or another by cancer.

She spent a lot of time training on her own or on an indoor wind trainer because she couldn’t find a group of girls to ride with at her pace, so when she moved interstate in 2013, she decided to create a Facebook group to make friends and meet other women who rode, and Chicks Who Ride Bikes was born.

Loren Rowney

Over half a decade, Loren Rowney was a highly sought after rouler in the international cycling scene. Riding for the world's best teams including Mitchelton-Scott and Canyon/SRAM, as well as wearing the green and gold for the Australian National Team, Loren was known for her tactical know how, resilience, and ability to make her team mates smile.

An avid blogger about mental health and the challenges she has faced while transitioning from a professional sportswoman to civilian, Loren remains a keen road and mtb cyclist, with a passion for seeing women achieve equal rights and equality in sport.

Jane Aubrey

Over the last two decades, Jane's career has spanned journalism and production working on the world's largest sporting events including Olympic & Commonwealth Games and has held media and operational roles in UCI teams, WorldTour events and the inaugural Indian Pacific Wheel Race.

A former Editor at Cyclingnews and Cyclist Australia & New Zealand, Jane has also worked in the Public Affairs Unit at the Department of Defence of Australia, and as Media Manager for Basketball Australia and Athletics Australia.

Now providing consulting advice in communications and public relations, Jane's spare time is spent preparing to take on some of the world's highest mountains and she's working on a plan to conquer the Seven Summits.
