Introducing The Kaurna Kit: an Attaquer X CyclingTips collaboration supporting Red Dust

As cyclists, we have the good fortune to create enduring memories of the landscapes and countries we ride through, as well as a connection to these places. Because of the bike, we are able to visit pristine areas that would otherwise be inaccessible to us, such as back roads and gravel paths that are just one lane wide. We are keenly aware of every change in the road’s grade, every gust of wind that hits us in the face, and every degree that the temperature changes. Cycling is one of the few activities in the world that may deliver the same sense of freedom and closeness to nature as other types of athletic activity. The terrain and area that is covered in the Tour Down Under make up a particularly remarkable portion of Australia. Some of the greatest ridings can be found in Australia because of its sun-baked terrain, undulating hills, and thick vegetation. But we were by no means the first individuals to appreciate the beauty of this location and the surrounding landscape. Miyurna, yarta, ngadlu tampinthi. The translation into Kaurna reads as follows: “We recognize the people and their country.”

However, the purpose of this partnership goes well beyond just producing a great kit design and paying tribute to the surrounding environment. Our mission is to educate people about the challenges that Indigenous Australians are up against, a topic that many contemporary Australians don’t give much thought to in their day-to-day lives. The life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is typically ten years lower than that of non-Indigenous Australians, and a considerably larger percentage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are affected by long-term sickness or disability. That is a statistic that a good many of us find difficult to get our heads around. It is essential to put an end to this vicious cycle of ill health. When you buy a set of this collaborative kit, 15% of your purchase is a direct donation to Red Dust, a fantastic charity focused on health promotion and development in remote Indigenous communities. Through the purchase of this kit, we will be providing assistance to Red Dust’s main programs in the hopes that they will be able to have a more significant influence on the future health of Indigenous Australian youth. Red Dust establishes connections with Indigenous adolescents via several mediums, including athletics, the arts, music, and dance. The goal of the organization is to encourage younger generations of Indigenous Australians to lead healthier lifestyles by exposing them to good role models in the community. The work they do is highly important and we hope you will join us in supporting Red Dust and sharing their message.
