Former world cycling champion and Olympic competitor Anna Millward has shared some tips with fellow lawyer cyclists as part of a PILCH fundraising event.

About 45 cycling enthusiasts trained with Ms Millward at the Botanic Gardens on 9 and 16 February, raising $700 towards PILCH’s Homeless Persons’ Legal Clinic.

Members across the legal profession, including a magistrate, QCs, solicitors and administrative staff, took part.

Ms Millward was the number one women’s cyclist in the world in 2001. She won gold and bronze at the Kuala Lumpur Commonwealth Games, silver at the Manchester Commonwealth Games and came fourth at the Sydney Olympics.

Ms Millward, a 33-year-old lawyer at Deacons who was on a three-month secondment to PILCH, took a five-year break from the law to pursue cycling but injury forced her to retire.

The Homeless Persons’ Legal Clinic has provided about $8 million of free legal advice to homeless people in Melbourne in the past three years.
