Cycle into Spring on Sunday, 14 September for NSW Bike Week.

Whether you are a biking beginner or a lycra-wearing, Cadel Evans fan, you are invited to join this free, fun family day.

Take a two hour ride to Cressfield Stud or take the kids on a loop of the improved track at Bill Rose Sports Complex in Scone.

There will also be a sausage sizzle and giveaways for junior riders.

You can even get your bike and helmet checked.
There is no need to book, just turn up with your bike and helmet and register for free on the day.

Middlebrook Road Ride
Meet at 8.00am at Bill Rose Sports Complex car park. Ride will leave at 8.30am travelling along Middlebrook Road, turning onto Cressfield Road, then onto Cressfield Stud for coffee and cakes. The ride is 50km from the start point, with an approximate riding time of 2 hours at a moderate pace (25 km/h).  There’s limited traffic, only a couple of minor hills and the cycle path is used to get from the sports complex to Middlebrook Road.  The ride will be accompanied by a support vehicle.

This ride is for cyclists aged 12 years and over.

Get Your Bike and Helmet Checked
10.15am - An Austcycle accredited teacher can check the fit or your helmet and bike, plus do a basic safety inspection of your bike.

Family Fun Ride
10.30am - Ride around the improved 2km track at the Bill Rose Sports Complex.  See how many laps you can complete in 30 minutes on the closed road and dirt track through the trees.

The day is being organised by Upper Hunter Shire Council Sports Participation Officer Nicky Western, a keen pedal pusher who is also an Austcycle accredited teacher. It is supported by Transport for NSW.

NSW Bike Week is an annual celebration of cycling, encouraging people from all walks of life to get on a bike and ride.
