Three disabled Japanese volunteers, two males and one female with an artificial leg or knee joint or hemiparesis, started Perth on 28th August for Sydney 5,000 km away. Two of them by turn ride ca. 100 km a day and Mr. Kazama or a Japanese orthopaedic surgeon escorts them (Fig 3, 4). On the way, they have visited hospitals such as trauma centers in Perth and Adelaide and are scheduled, by way of Melbourne,to arrive at Sydney on 17th October. Their endeavor to accomplish the journey, while making up each one's handicaps, should be a matchless opportunity to appeal the importance of musculoskeletal functions and to promote the public awareness toward it (Fig 5).
