Although Peter has now jumped back on his bike in 2015, he will be raising awareness and much needed funds for Australians living with blood cancer – by sitting in a car this year.
The Ride for Recovery is an 880km long ride through Tasmania’s spectacularly diverse scenery, visiting the historic towns of Hobart, Port Arthur, Tarraleah, Strahan, Davenport and Launceston. Due to leg and knee surgery late last year, the required training was not possible and hence Peter will be volunteering his time as driver of an escort vehicle. Given the hilly terrain, this will be somewhat of a blessing although keeping the peloton safe is not without its challenges.
The charity is close to Peter’s heart having had family and friends suffer from various forms of blood cancer. Peter proudly raised $5,770 in 2014 and invites one and all to dip into their pockets again this year. All money raised assists the Leukaemia Foundation and Myeloma Foundation in improving blood cancer patient services.
Congratulations Peter on your cycling efforts! For pictures of Peter’s 2014 cycling journey, hop over to our Facebook page here.
