Tour of New Zealand - Charity ride for Tearfund

With just a week to go to the Tour of New Zealand cycle ride, I would like to highlight the charity that we are riding for being, Tearfund. 

Tearfund is an amazing charity that works to prevent human trafficking, migrant smuggling and exploitation. I encourage you to read more about Tearfund at:

The Tour of New Zealand is a 505 km cycle ride through the South Island over eight days starting on 10th April.  

As you can appreciate as an overweight, balding, middle aged ex-rower, riding for eight days over some of New Zealand’s largest mountain passes will be challenge but it will be made easier by supporting an amazing charity and cause.

Any support/donation you can make to this worthy cause would be appreciated and I promise to provide photos of myself after riding up the Crown Range !

Thank you to my Sponsors
