Fire investigation officer Jason Johnson and senior firefighter Adrian Adams will be part of a group of 10 firefighters cycling from Brisbane to Hobart in January to raise money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. Picture: PHILLIP BIGGSTEN Tassie firefighters will harness pedal power to tackle 2500 kilometres in 14 days – all in the name of charity.
Launceston senior firefighter Adrian Adams and Northern Regional fire investigation officer Jason Johnson are part of the Headin’ South for a Cure ride, which will see the group cycle from Brisbane to Hobart.
Instead of nursing a sore head on January 1, they’ll be getting on their bikes for the first day of the inaugural event, which will raise money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
“Our goal is to raise $100,000 and we’ve already got about $60,000,” Mr Adams said.
Each day will see the firefighters cycle an average of 175 kilometres – whatever the weather throws at them.
“We’re going to be riding 2500 kilometres in 14 days; it’s going to be tough,” Mr Adams said.
“But I think the reason behind why we’re doing it is going to push us on.
“That, and I think one of our sponsors, Aussie Butt Cream, is going to help out a lot.”
The group will arrive back in Tasmania on January 13, and ride from Devonport to Oatlands via Launceston.
