As a fast-bowler, Pike represented her country 37 times and played in the Queensland Fire's memorable 2014 Women's T20 Final triumph over the ACT, showing skill and determination in mastering her craft over a storied 13-year career in maroon. 

Now a Queensland Cricket Director and Partner at law firm Dentons, the avid cyclist has traded her cricket whites and new Kookaburra ball for a helmet and road bike. 

Pike is once again set to take on the Chain Reaction Challenge, a daunting 7-day 1000km ride through the Snowy Mountains from Canberra to Melbourne starting on March 23, raising money for children's charities Ronald McDonald House and AEIOU Foundation.  

Joining her on the journey, Pike's eight, will be 57 other like-minded and ambitious directors and business people from Brisbane, with the cause and outcomes of assisting children in need one worthy of the physical challenge. 

"Being able to give back and be in the position to do so for such a great cause is great and I think all companies should get behind it," Pike told the Courier Mail. 

Chain Reaction runs a variety of cycling challenges across the country, all raising money for children's charities, with Pike having also recently completed the Sunshine Coast Women's 300.
