The Pioneer Mountain Bike Race is a brutal challenge. So is living with M.E.

  Nationwide

M.E. (Myalgic Encaphalomyelitis) is a debilitating chronic multi-system disease that affects an estimated 20,000 New Zealanders. Severely. For more information visit www.m.e.awareness.nz.

Richard Medlicott is a mountain bike ultra event-er who will be riding his second Pioneer race on the 1st - 6th December 2019. This grueling ride climbs 13,000 m in the southern alps of NZ, is 441 kms long and takes 6 days to ride. People travel from all around the world to push themselves to their absolute limits on The Pioneer MTB Race. www.thepioneer.co.nz

As a GP, Richard has recognised the lack of evidence based information readily available for doctors to support them in their care of patients with M.E. (also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Tapanui Flu and ME/CFS).

Richard is asking his GP colleagues and other contacts to sponsor his bike ride to raise funds for M.E. Awareness NZ.

Funds raised will go to the development and promotion of evidence based educational opportunities for health practitioners. These education opportunities will enhance understanding of the emerging research evidence around diagnosis and management of M.E., as well as helping health professionals to connect their patients with support networks.
