Riders want an Abbott challenge

BRING on fitness fanatic and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott is the word from Lorin Nicholson as the Blind Courage Ride participants prepare to ride into Canberra on Friday afternoon.

Mr Nicholson said they had invited Mr Abbott to join them on his bike in Canberra.

“The only advantage Tony has is a few days rest; we have been riding every day,” Mr Nicholson said.

“We also hope to meet the Prime Minister. It is time some of our national leaders take a real interest in blindness and low-vision issues which affect 300,000 Australians.”

They ride to Hay (NSW) today.
