LYCRA is not a popular fashion statement, but that will not stop Hilton resident Luke Sizer donning his favourite cycling gear to compete in the Ride for Sick Kids WA.

Kicking off tomorrow, Mr Sizer will join other cyclists in a 450km, four-day bike ride through the South-West, all while raising money for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Funds raised during the event will go towards the new $27 million Ronald McDonald House in Perth, which can care for 47 regional families a night.

Mr Sizer said he was looking forward to joining the other cyclists in support of the charity.

““I know many families from the South-West call Ronald McDonald House their home away from home, so it’s nice to be able to cycle through their region in support of them and all WA regional families going through a difficult time,” he said.

“RMHC plays an integral part in supporting regional families who travel from all over the State to seek treatment for their kids in Perth.

“A few of us have been in training to help make the distance and it will definitely be a great challenge,”
