Post retirement, former Australian cricketer Kirsten Pike has raised over $50,000 for charity, jumping on the bike for the Chain Reaction Challenge Foundation.

In March this year, Pike completed her sixth Chain Reaction Challenge across New Zealand's South Island over seven days.

Her group consisting of 58 riders raised over $1,500,000.

"I think it's always nice for me to be in a position where I can start to give back," Pike said.

"And it's also a fantastic substitute for not playing cricket anymore."

This October, Pike will take part in a three-day ride for the Women's Chain Reaction Challenge.

Forty women embarked upon the inaugural ride last year, raising over $400,000.

"It's phenomenal to see a bunch of women coming together and conquering something that they thought was not possible."

Pike raises money for children's charities Ronald McDonald House South East Queensland and AEIOU Foundation.

A fast-medium bowler, Pike played 37 games for Australia

Pike now works as a partner in the Real Estate and Construction Team at DibbsBarker.
