CNE members took up the challenge from the Physiology Department of Otago University to “Test your team's heart and 'cycle' around
the South Island of New Zealand”
…and when they say ‘cycle’ they’re talking just 10 minutes on an exercise bike – easy!
The challenge was to simply register a team of up to 4 people, who can cycle a total of 10 minutes – that’s only 2.5 minutes each if you want to share the load! The distance each team travels in 10 minutes will be plotted on our map of the South Island. With the help of all the Dunedin businesses we’re hoping to cycle as far as possible around the South Island. For each milestone reached along the way the Department of Physiology will also donate to the appeal.
There was a great turnout, and much fun had by all. Along with the Cycle Challenge and donations on the support page (link below if you wish to donate) almost $2,500 has been raised so far.
