Phil's Ride for Mitey

Phil's Ride for Mitey

Following the classic Tour Aotearoa Route, starting November 17, 2022, Phil is cycling 3,000 kms from Cape Reinga to Bluff.

This is Phil's Ride 4 Mitey. He's taken time off work to prepare and execute this big challenge. Of course he also had to buy a another bike for it :-)

Mitey is a Program by the John Kirwan Foundation which is currently being rolled out in schools around New Zealand. It is an evidence based mental health and wellness curriculum that is having a radical impact on those schools. Hear from Sir John Kirwan below. And find out more about Mitey here.

Please get involved by:
  1. Joining for parts of the ride. There are some mountain bike single tracks, gravel roads and road stages.
  2. Or try one of these sponsorship options;
This ride will be a huge challenge for Phil. Lots of training and preparation is going into it. And the cause means a lot to him personally.

About Blue Fitness: Believe it or not this ride is a warm-up for a bigger challenge. In June 2023 I will join three friends in a non-stop relay race across America. More about that on this website. We are seeking sponsors support for that undertaking if you are feeling more adventurous.
