Tour de Ten Lives

Tour de Ten Lives

The ¼ Tour de France is a cycling adventure by the President of Ten Lives and hopefully some loyal supporters around Southern Tasmania aimed to match the real Tour de France, except doing only ¼ of the distance, with some exceptions. The Tour takes in all places from where Ten Lives receives lost and abandoned cats and goes some way in demonstrating the reach of Ten Lives (over 1,000 kms).


Like the real tour, the ¼ Tour will have 21 Stages and will take place over 3 weeks from Saturday 29 August 2020 and finishing with a sprint on our version of the Paris Champs Elysee, being along Charles Street next to the public park at Orford on Sunday 20 September. It will scale Mount Wellington, go to Huonville, Lauderdale and Granton and everywhere else in between. It will visit the Ten Lives Margate Op Shop, and naturally have a stage leaving and finishing at Ten Lives at Selfs Point.

If the Tour can save the life of one cat, it will be more than worth it!

“We have always had the support of the community and as part of my commitment to Ten Lives I am taking the Tour de Ten Lives challenge to get stuck in to help Ten Lives get set for the next 20 years of helping cats, the community and our environment.”

– David Rees, Ten Lives President
