Mike is cycling over 500kms across the South Island in support of kiwis who are affected by neuroendocrine (NET) cancer.


Mike is cycling the Tour of New Zealand from April 10 - 17th. This epic adventure is a ride of over 500kms from Glenorchy to Wellington, in support of kiwis who are affected by neuroendocrine (NET) cancer.

"I am a land surveyor by trade, but I spend a lot more time in a coordination role at Lysaght Consultants, a land development consultancy I am a director of. A weekend warrior at best, I have been competing in triathlons for years and spend a lot of time mountain biking so I enjoy being out and about on a bike.

My neighbour James introduced me to the Tour of NZ over a few beers at the annual street Christmas function. He talked about the Unicorn Foundation and the great work the foundation does raising awareness and funds for Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET’s). I love a challenge, so the idea of biking some iconic roads in the South Island whilst fundraising for a good cause ticks a bunch of boxes in the challenge space."
