Break the Boundary Talk

Andrew Liddawi founder of Break the Boundary will be speaking about his team’s 5th consecutive Cape to Cape Mountain Bike Handcycling.

Break the Boundary comprises of adventure enthusiasts who volunteer their time to help spread the message of adaptive mountain biking around Australia. Team members take different roles to help people with a physical disability accomplish and break different boundaries, such as the annual Cape to Cape MTB race in Western Australia. Constantly being at the forefront of Australian history, the team continues to expand, diversify and help each other were possible and accomplish more brazen feats each year!

Break the Boundary Founder, Andrew says: “I set out on a mission early 2011 to rediscover mountain biking on a handcycle after a bad MTB accident in 2008 which left me completely paralyzed from the waist down. After several events and many rides around Australia, I get a drive from bringing new riders into the slowly developing sport of Off Road Handcycling during my spare time while advocating for more inclusion around WA and other states in Australia.”

Come along to this free community talk to hear more about Andrew’s inspirational journey and the organisation that he has founded.
