Cyclists of all abilities and ages have two events to choose from as NSW Bike Week rolls into the Eurobodalla this weekend.
This Saturday, (September 22) Eurobodalla Shire Council will host a Clyde River Bike Ride along the Clyde River Foreshore in Batemans Bay.
Council’s Recreation Development Coordinator Matt Neason is encouraging residents to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.
“Our community bike rides always have a great turnout and fun atmosphere and we’re hoping the two events this year will be no exception,” he says
On Saturday, Kids will join a fun group ride from Corrigans to Hanging Rock guided by the Eurobodalla Bicycle Users Group. Adults can ride from Corrigans to Lions Park near the Bay Bridge, then ride back to Corrigans for some fun bike activities with the crew from Batemans Bay Cycles and Moruya Cycles.
Registrations for both rides open at 9 am, ahead of a 10 am start.
There will giveaways, free bike safety checks and a barbecue after the ride and the first 10 registrations on the day receive a free helmet.
On Sunday (September 23) riders can head off-road at the Bust a Loop MTB Skills Day at Deep Creek Dam, hosted by Eurobodalla Cyclists.
The Day is an opportunity for beginners to experience the thrills of mountain biking, with plenty of loan bikes available.
There will be guided trail rides with experienced riders, skills workshops for beginners and intermediates, a downhill time challenge and a sausage sizzle and coffee van to refuel.
For more information or to book a demo ride or workshop, contact Angus Murphy on 4474 3978.
“Now that the weather is warming up, it’s the perfect opportunity to get the treadly out of the shed and rediscover the fun of cycling. It’s fun, free and great for your health and the environment,” Mr Neason says.
Details for both events are on Council’s website.
