Riders will tackle a 14km, 40km or 100km track at the Act-Belong-Commit Dwellingup 100 on Saturday.

They will ride for someone living with muscular dystrophy to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy Western Australia and support people living with the condition, for research and for community services.

Virginia from Dawesville is usually a triathlete. However, she will try her hand at mountain biking.

She rides for Jordan (7) who lives with muscular dystrophy.

Matthew from Halls Head is in Year 12 and hopes to study medicine next year.

He will take a break from the textbooks to jump on his mountain bike and Ride For Someone Who Can’t.

He will ride for Luke, who has Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy.

‘I hope that one day conditions like muscular dystrophy can |become a thing of the past, |like polio, ceasing to disadvantage and cut short the lives of sufferers across the world,’ he said.
