Cyclists deliver for Warwick hospital

ALISTAIR McNee was among the 20 cyclists who rode into Warwick yesterday, on their 1200km journey from Sydney to Brisbane.

Mr McNee, from Brisbane, has participated in the 1200km for kids charity bike ride for the past four years.

The cyclists have brought with them $10,000 for a new jaundice meter at the Warwick Hospital.

"It is great to see the money we raise is being used to help sick kids," Mr McNee said.

The cyclists rode 220km yesterday from Tamworth to Warwick via Old Stanthorpe Rd, which is not an easy feat.

One cyclist came off on the downhill and another was hit from behind by a kangaroo. Yet they were all still smiling as they rode into the McNevins Warwick Motel, where they dined with Mayor Peter Blundell.
