Australian cyclist Phil Anderson will lead a six-day ride promoting road safety that leaves from Wodonga on Sunday morning.
The 2018 Amy’s Share the Road Tour involves 24 cyclists riding almost 800 kilometres to Melbourne via Falls Creek, Mount Buller and the Yarra Valley.
Aiming to raise more than $100,000 for the Amy Gillett Foundation, the tour will visit five schools including on Tuesday St Mary’s Primary School, Myrtleford.
Anderson, the first Australian to wear the Tour de France yellow jersey, will be joined by Belgium pro-cyclist Rudy Rogiers and Australia’s Grace Brown, the 2018 Amy Gillett cycling scholar.
The annual ride spreads cyclist safety messages such as a metre matters and the importance of mutual respect and responsibility between cyclists and drivers.
