Biloela Business owners smiling for adam smiddy

DON and Di Morris are well known for their love of bike riding so it's no surprise they are helping out the annual Smiling for Smiddy Challenge on Monday.

Grevells Homemakers and Anderssons Fruit Market have teamed up to refuel 50 hungry cyclists plus 10 road crew who will arrive at the stores around 2pm after travelling 634km from Brisbane over three days.

They will finish their day's ride at Jambin where they will stay overnight.

A further 966km will be cycled, arriving in Home Hill on Saturday September 12.

The two local stores will not only provide refreshments when the cyclists roll into Biloela - food and fuel are supplied for another two days out to Clermont.

Owner of Grevells Homemakers , Don Morris, said he was proud to support the dedicated cyclists who are making a real contribution in the fight against cancer.

“Being able to give is important, especially for a disease that affects us or family and friends at some stage of our lives,” Mr Morris said.

The fourth annual challenge is held in memory of Adam Smiddy, a 26-year-old Brisbane physiotherapist and triathlete who passed away from an aggressive cancer in 2006.
