Pushing pedals to fight diabetes

Guy Barnett,Liberal Member for Lyons

We are ready to ride once again for the annual Diabetes Tasmania Tasmanian Pollie Pedal – the 16th edition of the important charity ride.

The unique event raises awareness and funds to support the important work of Diabetes Tasmania.

I have been proud to take part in the ride since its inception in 2006 and am pleased to announce that to date, it has raised over $740,000 to support Tasmanians with diabetes and their families.

As someone with type 1 diabetes and as a Diabetes Australia Ambassador, I am thrilled to continue supporting the Pollie Pedal.

Starting in St Helens and finishing in Richmond, cyclists on this year’s ride will cover more than 250 kilometres and experience some of the stunning scenery and community spirit that Tasmania has to offer.

The 16th annual Pollie Pedal begins this Friday 26 February and concludes on Sunday 28 February 2021.

I would like to thank all of those who continue to support this very worthy cause, and if anyone would like to learn more about this initiative please visit https://diabetestas.org.au/pollie-pedal/
