On yer bikes, boys and girls.
Put on your helmet, jump on your bike and join in on some fun-filled activities at Campbelltown’s Bicycle Education and Road Safety Centre for Ready to Ride Day this Sunday, September 14.
Ready to Ride Day is held during NSW Bike Week and proudly supported by Transport for NSW. The free annual event promotes active and healthy lifestyles, as well as bicycle safety.
The family fun day out will include a bike safety quiz and display, bike safety and maintenance checks, face painting and a jumping castle, as well as a free sausage sizzle. Ride the circuit or test out the skills course to find out who is ready to ride! But remember – no helmet, no ride!
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr Clinton Mead, said Ready to Ride Day was a chance to be active and have fun at the same time.
“I encourage families to go for a spin at this great community event held at one of our most popular recreational facilities,” Cr Mead said.
The Campbelltown Bicycle Education and Road Safety centre features an off-road cycleway, complete with traffic lights, roundabouts and road signs, and programs to teach children about road rules and bicycle safety. The centre holds regular open days, and can be booked for birthday parties or for school and community groups.
A new children’s playground opened at the centre in mid-June, featuring a turbo and double turbo slide, a cubbyhouse area for toddlers, a pinnacle climber, voice tubes, and a variety of rockers in different designs. The bike centre also boasts two large photo signs that provide a fun and interactive way for people to capture their bike centre experience.
Ready to Ride Day will be held at the Campbelltown Bicycle Education and Road Safety Centre on King Street from 10am to 12 noon.
