Newcastle City Council will celebrate Bike Week with the 17th annual free community breakfast for cyclists on Sunday 24 September.
Bike Week is a NSW Government initiative that promotes cycling as a healthy and environmentally friendly way of getting around for short trips, and the free community breakfast is a great way to meet like minded people in your community.
“Council is committed to making cycling a safe and attractive transport option for Novocastrians, and this year we are spending $2.4 million on increasing safe links around the city,” Newcastle City Council Interim CEO Jeremy Bath said.
“We are fully committed to the expansion and upgrade of the network, in addition to cycling advocacy, promotion and education.
“Riding a bike is a great way to travel, save money, keep fit and is often faster than other modes of transport.”
Riders can enjoy a free brekkie, coffee and prize give-aways at the Lambton Park event on Sunday 24 September from 9am to 12noon.
