LAST MONTH Michael joined some Queensland Rugby legends to "throw a leg over" and cycle from Brisbane to Noosa for charity.

The group left the Reds' home ground of Ballymore at 6am to ride the 165km to Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, arriving before 2pm, ahead of schedule.

"Some of those guys aren't built to be cyclists and there were some really interesting riding styles. The view from behind wasn't great at times but they sure do block the wind!" said Michael laughing. "It was a long ride with a few tough climbs and you have to admire the guys for sticking at it until the end."

The group included Olympic swimmer Duncan Armstrong, champion triathlete Troy Fidler and champion cyclist Lorian Graham along with "Vintage Reds" Dan and Anthony Herbert, Andrew Heath and Dan Crowley as well as Reds Head Coach Phil Mooney.

The ride was timed to coincide with the "Country vs Country" Gala Dinner that night at which Michael was guest speaker, and the Qld Country vs NSW Country "Battle of the Borders" match in Noosa the following day.

Charities of choice for this year's ride were the Noosa-based 'Frangipani Dreams' and their special project the construction of a new library and childcare facility for the Aboriginal community of Yarrabah, just north of Cairns.
