Tour de Freedom Tasmania

This Saturday around 100 cyclists will depart Devonport for a 774km ride to Hobart to raise awareness of the work of ONE80TC - one of Australia's most recognised and effective drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs.

The Bicycling Australia Challenge, now in its sixth year, is an annual charity ride to raise support and funds for ONE80TC in its effort to restore the broken lives of young people overcoming drug and alcohol addictions.

"We have made a commitment to raise $1 million dollars for ONE80TC," said Phil Latz from Bicycling Australia. "With little government funding, it is the support of events such as the Bicycling Australia Challenge that enables ONE80TC to keep its doors open."

The Bicycling Australia Challenge commences in Devonport and visits Launceston, St Helens, Swansea and Richmond before arriving in Hobart on Tuesday.
