Leeton Shire Council will be hosting an event for NSW Bike Week 2018 on Sunday, September 30.
Council received funding from the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to promote an event as part of NSW Bike Week and increase awareness of the benefits of cycling.
“We are really pleased to have received the funding from the RMS to support an event in the shire this year,” Leeton shire road safety officer Steph Puntoriero said.
“Our Bike Week events have become an anticipated event among families and cyclists, and we are hoping for an increased attendance this year as awareness of the event grows.
“There are more families than ever using the cycle track and training facility for fun and fitness.
“The September event is planned to encourage even more residents to take advantage of this wonderful asset within our community.”
There are a couple of events organised for Let’s Ride Leeton.
This advertising feature is supported by the following business:
There is a colouring-in competition, which is available to download from the Leeton Shire Council tourism web page or can be cut out of The Irrigator (see below).
In conjunction with Cycling Australia, Leeton Shire Council is also offering children aged between the ages of five and 14 years the opportunity to participate in a free workshop that aims to teach kids new skills to help them ride their bikes safely around our shire.
Pre-registration is a must for this workshop and can be done on Leeton Shire Council’s event page or by phoning 0427 837 974.
The workshop will commence at 10am on Sunday, September 30 at the bike training facility, opposite Leeton No. 3 Oval and the skatepark in Palm Avenue, and conclude at noon.
There will also be mapped cycle rides, raffles, a sausage sizzle, the announcement of winners in the colouring-in and helmet design competitions, and giveaways.
