Cycle challenge a family affair

WITH Sunday's third annual NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge only days away families are encouraged to get on their bike and enjoy the sights of Coffs Harbour as part of the 10km family ride.

Starting at 10am near the Jetty on Jordan Esplanade the fun and relaxing ride follows the Hogbin Drive cycle way the education campus and back.

"Our goal is for the challenge to grow into an event that captivates the Coffs Coast," Coffs City Rotarian and event organiser Jay Clowes said

"Not everyone can cycle 60km or 100km, but those of us with young kids would cherish the opportunity to get out and go for a ride with them."

"We really want to engage local families and hope we get a great turnout for Sunday's ride."

The family ride has been specifically designed so that it doesn't include many road crossings.

"The event itself is sure to be great fun," Clowes said.

"We have the Coffs Coast Community Circus performing near the Jetty after the event and a display of classic and modern rally cars.

"Even if you don't want to participate in the ride, there will be plenty to do at the Jetty on Sunday."

Registrations will be open right up until the event.

Entrants in the family ride can register online at coffscoastcyclechallenge.com until Friday night, in person on Saturday at the ground floor meeting room Coffs Harbour Yacht Club from 3.30pm to 6pm or at TS Vendetta, Coffs Harbour Jetty from 6am to 7am on the day of the event.
