Riding to support True Colours Children's Health Trust

Waikato

Dave Clay has been enjoying cycling for 25 years.

Next year he embarks on his most important ride to date, covering nearly 900km through the wider Waikato area, helping to raise money for True Colours.

Dave and wife Louise, are the grandparents of Hadleigh Clay, and the ride is their way of giving something back to True Colours, for the support they have shown their grandson and extended family.

Dave will do a ‘warm-up’ ride (160km) around Lake Taupo in November, competing in the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge, an event he has participated in 13 times previously.

Come March 2nd 2018, Dave will set off from Cambridge and visit a total of 23 towns around the Waikato and Coromandel (the same area that True Colours covers). Daves route will take him to Cambridge, Te Awamutu, Otorohanga, Te Kuiti, Taumaranui, Mangakino, Tokoroa, Putaruru, Tirau, Matamata, Morrinsville, Te Aroha, Paeroa, Waihi, Whangamata, Tairua, Whitianga, Coromandel, Thames, Ngatea, Huntly, Ngarurawahia, Raglan and Hamilton.

He will be helped out along the way by local Lions Clubs who will meet him and help him to raise funds on the day in the local towns. Dave will be easy to spot in his specially designed cycle-shirt, which has been kindly sponsored by Craigs Investment Partners and Cleland Hancox Ltd. This generous sponsorship has enabled the Clays to offer more of these shirts to others whose donations will benefit True Colours
