Plauts Eckart takes on the Simpson Desert Bike Challenge

Terri Reeves Tuesday, August 16, 2016 Plaut news

Eckart Altenkamp is our Finance Solution Lead, who you will normally find busy servicing our customers from the comfort of his office chair; however in September he will be trading this for 5 days in the saddle.

Eckart is embarking on the crossing of the Simpson Desert, a bike race where 25 riders cover 580 km, across 1,200 sand dunes, in 5 days from Burni Bore, SA (a tin shed) along the French Line to Birdsville (QLD).

Between those 2 locations he certainly won’t find an office chair, there will be no chairs at all, he will find absolutely nothing. No settlement, no house, no shower, no toilet, just an expanse of desert.

This race starts on 27 September. 

Plaut wish Eckart all the best for his challenge, where he will raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.  (RFDS) provides the finest care to more than 290,000 Australians each year – that’s one person every two minutes.


Plaut have pledged to match every dollar raised for this charity.
