On your bikes Central Coast!
Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said Bike Week is a fantastic NSW Government initiative and Council is thrilled to be offering the Central Coast community a great line-up of activities for all age and ability levels.
“Bike Week is the perfect opportunity to learn or refine essential skills to ride safely and to maintain your bike,” Ms Vaughan said.
“Cycling is a practical transport mode to access work, study and services and a great way to get active and to enjoy our beautiful region using our cycleways and shared pathways – there’s nothing quite like taking in our scenic waterways whilst riding a bike.”
Mayor Jane Smith said cycling is a great way to improve community health and wellbeing and is an environmentally friendly transport mode that enhances the liveability and sustainability of the Central Coast.
“If you’re keen to use cycling for fun, to get active or to get around, Bike Week is a way to get started,” Mayor Smith said.
“Council will continue to invest in new shared pathways and upgrade current ones to ensure our community can cycle safely right around the Coast.”
Bike Week runs from 21-29 September and includes a series of activities to promote safe cycling on the Central Coast:
- Learn to Ride Workshop – Saturday 21 September, 9.30-10am or 10.15-10.45am, Palmdale
