From the 1st – 8th April, Pete (Director Pacific Environments NZ Ltd) will be riding in the Hynds Heart Racer Team on the Tour of NZ. This is a multi-day road race effectively the length of the South Island. A team will be doing the North Island in tandem, with both teams finishing in Wellington. For more details check out their website.
Its a great event and the second time that Pete has entered, but this time having to avoid Kaikoura and hit the inland road instead! Last time they had every weather condition thrown at them, with torrential rain over the Crown Range, snow and blizzards over Lyndis Pass, zero degree frosts in many other places and stunning stunning conditions too!
This is a fundraiser, with the team supporting the Heart Foundation.
Heart Disease is largely preventable but one in nine adults will die from it. More research and education is needed. You family WILL be affected. This is a brilliant cause to get behind and back before during and after Tour of NZ 2017!
The Hynds Heart Racer fundraising page has been set up and is looking for your kind donations. So if this sounds like something you’d like to support then follow this link.
