Jess nominated for the 2016 Cycling Australia Subaru People’s Choice Award! Can you believe it?! I'm so thrilled to share that I have been nominated for the 2016 Cycling...
Honoured to have been nominated for @cyclingaustralia #Subaru #PeoplesChoice award in my first year on the #AussieCycling team (let's not forget my tandem pilot @maddiejanssen)! If you have a spare couple of minutes I would love your vote, it's super quick to do & pretty easy to spot me being on a bike made for 2! 😂 #tandem #paracycling #cycling @ausparalympics @cyclingvictoria 👉 Link in my bio
Yewwww so much fun doing an #obstaclecourse class at our friend Jas' new #gym in #Geelong! This was my favourite obstacle, it was big (& not even the biggest one)!!! 💪 They cater for all #fitness levels & have #boxing, #yoga & the obstacle set up was awesome! If you're in Gtown go try it out... I already want to go again! Thanks to the guys for having me! 👌 #health #GOBT #GeelongBoxing&ObstacleTraining
Here's a thought. How would you know seeing something that what you saw was with full vision? Launching #snapforsight this morning #Vision2020Australia alongside the Centre for Eye Research Australia released the ground breaking results on Australia's #eye health with some incredible statistics. Over 50% of participants had an eye condition without knowing it... when was the last time you had your eyes tested?! @snapforsight #WorldSightDay #eyehealth
