Herceptin Riders 'Biking for Boobs' Protest Ride

Ten pinked-out motorcycle riders, men and women, are riding through the North Island to highlight the government's refusal to fund 12 months of life-saving Herceptin for women with HER2 positive breast cancer. The riders and supporters will arrive in Auckland on Friday 7 March, 1800 hours outside Sky City where ride organiser Maxine Cook will jump from the Sky Tower at 1900 hours in bright pink overalls.

The protest ride will end on the steps of Parliament at noon, Wednesday 12th March with a multitude of motorcycles, speeches, presentation of a petition and appearances from MPs.
