Bike community notice

The Far North Wilderness Bike Tour.

22nd to 29th September 2012.

Registrations are open for this long-standing, celebrated charity mountain bike ride.  Consisting of 8 days exploring the remote natural wonders of North Queensland between Cairns, Innisfail, Ravenshoe and Tinaroo this is a real opportunity to challenge yourself physically and see places many never get to visit at your own pace.  We offer bush camping with swims, hot showers, fully catered home cooked meals and free scroggin.  Last year 100% of the riders rated the event as great value for money. 

Come and join us by visiting www.fnqbiketour.org.au or e-mail info@fnqbiketour.org.au and register for the tour of a lifetime.

GreenWay Debate in Parliament - all welcome

Families invited to debate 31 May 2012

The Friends of the GreenWay group today urged the inner west community, especially families with school-aged children, along to the May 31 NSW Parliament GreenWay debate. 

 The 4.30pm debate kick-off time means that parents would be able to bring their children after school (most schools finish around 3pm). However, as the debate will last no longer than 16 minutes, attendees are strongly urged to arrive by at least 4.15pm. 

The GreenWay will be a major off-road route for local kids to get to school and a place where they can get fit while safely exploring the fascinating local environment.
