Cranking up for a wheelie fun day out

Tuesday 24 September 2019

Cycling is one of the shire’s most popular activities and there’s a great reason to mount up, with a community ride next weekend as part of NSW Bike Week.

Eurobodalla Council’s recreation coordinator Mathew Neason said whether it was two weeks or 22 years since people had last been on a bike the community ride was the perfect time to reconnect with an old passion or learn a new habit.

“With spectacular views along the coast, the ride will travel along the Dalmeny shared pathway,” he said.

“We’ll have experienced riders from EuroBUG – the shire’s cycling group – leading the charge.”

Registration opens at 9am for the 10am ride on Sunday, September 29. Mr Neason said the event was suitable for all ages and skill levels.

“From Rotary Park we’ll cycle up to Kianga Point and back for a 13 kilometre round trip,” he said.

“Or choose the shorter ride – up to Binalong Street and back – a fun four kilometres. Either way, don’t forget your helmet, water bottle and sunscreen.

Mr Neason said last year’s ride along the Clyde River was a huge success and this year’s ride was looking even better, “the event is free and kids under 14 years need to be accompanied by an adult”.

“There will be free bike-safety checks and other giveaways,” he said.

“Most of all it’s a great way to reconnect with nature and with the community.”
