The Wine Peloton cyclists that conquered the 7 Peaks and toured Tasmania included winemakers, grapegrowers, winery suppliers, the CEO of wine storage business, a wine bar owner, wine business managers, a winemaking student, wine marketers and a wine consumer.
The Wine Peloton will once again cycle in support of the Teen Rescue Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to addressing the harmful use of alcohol among Australian teens through education and intervention.
This event provides the wine community the opportunity to become more pro-active in addressing this serious health and social issue. With an active and vocal anti-alcohol lobby which does not discriminate in its opposition to different forms of alcoholic beverages, the wine community needs to demonstrate that it is a responsible member of the broader community, is being active in helping to prevent the unintended abuse of alcohol and contributing to practical solutions to alcohol abuse.
The Australian wine community is invited to support this important cause through being a participant cyclists in one of the designated Grand Fondo events or supporting those who are cyclists by making a financial contribution.
We would love to push through the $100,000 mark and we need your support. If you would like to be a Wine Peloton cyclist please contact Drew Tuckwell. If you would like to financially support our cyclists you can do so via the www.mycause.com.au fundraising site.
