Cycle to the Scone Cup… or TAFE

A new bicycle path has been created from Satur out to the Scone Race Club in time for the Scone Cup this Friday (12 May 2017).

The 2.2m wide asphalt path stretches almost 800 metres from Gray Street to Flemington Drive.

The project which will cost an estimated $100,000 is one of the major recommendations from the Upper Hunter Shire Council Bicycle Plan which can be viewed at http://upperhunter.nsw.gov.au/f.ashx/a-zdocuments/Upper-Hunter-Bicycle-Plan-2015.pdf

Bikes and helmets can be hired from the Scone Visitor Information and Horse Centre for $30 a day, or $15 an hour and $5 for each hour after that. The bike hire scheme was funded through the NSW Government’s Better Waste and Recycling Program.

The Scone VIC is open every day of the Scone Horse Festival from 9am to 5pm week days and 10am to 4pm weekends on the corner of Kelly and Susan streets.

Scone Cup Day is a half day public holiday in most of the Upper Hunter and all Council offices in Aberdeen, Merriwa, Murrurundi and Scone including libraries and youth centres will be closed from noon on Friday 12 May 2017. Upper Hunter Shire waste depots will be open normal operating hours.
