The cold of winter is really starting to settle in, but instead of rugging up and hibernating like the rest of us, Kohen Grogan plans to ride a floating bike from Cottesloe Beach to Rottnest Island. With the help of Ocean Guardian, powered by Shark Shield Technology, Grogan will be taking on the icy 23km ride in waters well known for shark attacks. Grogan plans to tackle his ride between 1 – 14 June.
Although he’s previously described himself as “incredibly unfit”, Grogan aims to train hard in an effort to raise $10,000 to help build a school in remote Cambodia.
“Currently, most children have to travel 2.5 hours each way to get to school. There are also approximately 121 million primary and secondary age children that don’t have any access to education. To help this crisis we will also be building clean water drinking facilities, toilets and a solar station”, says Grogan.
To aid Grogan in his risky but courageous ride, Ocean Guardian will be loaning him a FREEDOM+ Surf to attach to his catamaran-bike hybrid. Ocean Guardian’s Shark Shield Technology has been protecting ocean adventurers for 20 years and has again recently been scientifically proven to significantly reduce risk and deter white sharks, with new research led by Flinders University and commissioned by the NSW Department of Primary Industries.
Lindsay Lyon, CEO of Ocean Guardian says, “We are honoured to be helping Kohen complete his ride by offering him a little extra protection to ensure he accomplishes the journey safely. We wish him all the best and sincerely hope he reaches his goal.”
