Tour de Cure team stops in Byron

Riders in the annual Tour de Cure bike ride that raises funds for Australian cancer research projects stopped off in Byron Bay last Thursday before completing the final legs to Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast.


The 90-plus men and women riders arrived at Main Beach in two waves, where support crew members were waiting with their bags and motel keys.


They all gathered later for a buffet dinner at The Byron Bay Brewery.


Riders, including the Sunrise TV show’s sports reporter, Mark Beretta, who was doing live crosses to the show, left from Cape Byron on Friday morning for Kingscliff via Mullumbimby.
