My name is Vicki Lee, and I am really looking forward to participating in this ride and raising some well needed money towards cancer research.

As a breast cancer survivor of 7 years, I fully understand the heartache of enduring cancer treatment.  I lost my beloved husband to leukemia in 2015 as well, so I can fully understand just what Claire and others are going through.

I consider myself lucky and am grateful that I managed pretty well through chemotherapy, surgery and radium.  I fronted up at oncology every week in a different fancy dress outfit (sometimes not feeling 100%).  The nurses were always eager to see what character I presented to them each week.

I am the Easter Bunny in the middle of my profile photo, along with my mum and friend Kim, who I met during chemo treatment.  We were both battling breast cancer, and Kim is still having treatment 8 years on from her initial diagnosis.

So, 7 years on and I am happily travelling around in my campervan with my trusty bike exploring rail trails in our beautiful country – especially the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

I initially met Peter when I was living in Rockhampton about 23 years ago, and used to run with Peter and Claire in the Rocky Road Runners.  I spent 7 fun filled years living in Rockhampton and Yeppoon where I spent many hours pounding the pavement in my running days – hence the transfer to a bike (much easier on the knees).

I am a very happily retired police officer and living in North Lakes, QLD.
