‘Get on yer bike’ takes on a new meaning when it comes to raising money for the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.
Two Casino teenagers who were plucked from the Richmond River, and a pair of yachties stranded at sea this week, are just four of many people who owe their lives to the chopper.
The helicopter’s annual Hell on Wheels Cycle Tour is taking place again from 6 to 13 October and organiser Tony Keogh is scouting about for a new and challenging route.
Riders on the eight-day jaunt are accompanied by support staff and volunteers and accommodation in local hotels is included in the registration fee.
Registration forms are available online at www.helirescue.com.au or by phoning Krystal on 6627 4444.
