Australian Doctors International (ADI) is planning an inaugural fundraising bike ride through Papua New Guinea’s New Ireland Province in May 2018 called Pedal4PNG. The purpose of the ride is to raise funds to support ADI’s health patrols in PNG.
The ride is a unique opportunity to bring Australians to New Ireland to participate in an event that is not only a rare opportunity to cycle in a beautiful and remote location fully supported, but to see first hand the work of ADI and the health needs of Australia’s nearest neighbour – PNG.
The bike ride will take place along 260km of coast from Namatanai to Kavieng. Along the way riders will have a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery, visit health clinics to see ADI’s work on the ground, and meet locals. You’ll have time for R&R, with chances to enjoy the local scuba diving, go fishing or surfing, or just relax and watch some chocolate making. There’ll be a bit of history too, with WW2 sites around the island.
The riders will arrive in Kavieng on the evening of Sunday 13th May and depart after the ride on the morning of Friday 18th.
With the group capped at 20 participants, excluding the support team, this will ensure the ride is an intimate, unforgettable experience.
