Garry Downs

We're fundraising for Tearfund

This year I am riding the Tour of New Zealand with a team representing Tearfund.

The ride covers a total distance of over 500kms across 8 days April 10-17th:




Day 1

Glenorchy to Queenstown

37 km

Day 2

Arrowtown to Wanaka

53 km

Day 3

Lake Hawea to Haast

121 km

Day 4

Knights Point Lookout to Fox Glacier

93 km

Day 5

Ross to Greymouth

61 km

Day 6

Mouse Point to Kaikoura

100 km

Day 7

Blenheim to Picton

61 km

Day 8



I would really appreciate your support to help raise money for Tearfund, a very worthy cause.

Tearfund is focused on preventing human trafficking of women and children in Nepal, South East Asia and the Pacific who are being forced into the sex industry.

A small donation can make a big difference to vulnerable people at risk.

With thanks,


Thank you to my Sponsors
