Get on your bike... to Vietnam

Hi all,

Received this today - might be of interest to some members - in support of a NSW charity.

Northcott Disability Services, an organisation that supports children and adults with disabilities across NSW has officially announced its Vietnam Cycling Challenge for 2007.

The Vietnam Cycle Challenge is the adventure of a lifetime starting in Ho Chi Minh City and finishing in Hanoi. In just two weeks participants will experience remote rural villages, stunning coastlines and the ancient tombs of the Nguyen dynasty all by mountain bike.

The challenge allows participants to experience Vietnam over two weeks for around $70 a day says Northcott Fundraising Manager Judy Lewis.

"I'm certain Northcott will be overwhelmed with registrations, an adventure like this would normally cost thousands of dollars but in this case you only pay a small registration fee and raise funds for Northcott between now and March 2007," Mrs Lewis said.

"The fundraising component shouldn't worry anyone, Northcott has been raising funds for the community since 1929 and we'll provide support from start to finish."

The inaugural Northcott Cycling challenge will be from 19 March to 30 March 2007. Places are limited. For more information contact Adam Drinan on (02) 9890 0150, via email on or visit
