Get active Shoalhaven – It’s Bike Week! Shoalhaven City Council is inviting the community to jump on your bike and join fun filled rides around the Shoalhaven area during NSW Bike Week which is held from 16-24 September 2017.
NSW Bike Week is an annual celebration of cycling which aims to:
- Increase the use of local cycling infrastructure for transport and recreation
- Provide a safe and secure environment for new and less confident cyclists to improve their cycling skills
- Educate the community on the importance of road safety and road rules
- Promote cycling as a safe and healthy mode of transport for short trips.
There are two NSW Bike Week events in the Shoalhaven:
Saturday 16 September from 2pm Dolphin Point. Join an easy paced mountain bike ride through the pristine National Park enjoying the terrain and the wonders of nature. On your return, enjoy lunch and cook a BBQ or have a picnic using BBQ facilities available in the park. Meet at 2pm at Lions Club Park, Dolphin Point. Mountain bikes are advisable. Suitable for beginners.
Sunday 17 September 2017 from 9am Huskisson. Join an easy flat bike ride from Huskisson to Plantation Point. Flat roads and generous shared pathways will make your ride enjoyable while you take in the breathtaking scenery of Jervis Bay. The ride is 12 km from White Sands Park (next to Huskisson Pub) Huskisson where you meet at 9am to ride to Plantation Point and return. On return, support the Jervis Bay Lions Club who will be providing lunch (at your own expense) at White Sands Park.
