Tour De Cure comes to town
MYRTLEFORD’S Adam Cartwright was among a 74-strong peloton on the Tour De Cure who rode into town on Friday afternoon pedalling the message about healthy lifestyles and raising money for cancer research.
The High Country Charity Ride enjoyed a lunch stop at St Mary’s Primary School to promote their cause.
“We left from Wangaratta this morning and will spend tonight in Bright, over the four days we travel across to Omeo and then back through Falls Creek, it’s about 460km.
“It started four years ago with just 30 riders and last year the Tour de Cure got on board as well.”
When the tour returned to Wangaratta on Monday the total raised was in excess of $40,000.
REST STOP: Myrtleford’s Adam Cartwright was among the Tour De Cure riders who visited St Mary’s Primary School where he was able to catch up with his daughter Laura.
