A new set of wheels could be available for two keen bike riders thanks to this year’s Sally’s Ride.
To launch its newest event, a 10-kilometre family ride, two children’s bikes will be donated as prize for all entries in the race.
The bikes will be custom fitted to the winners by Geard Cycles.
Adding the off-street family ride was a way make cycling more accessible and fun for everyone in the community.
The founder of the event will lead the family ride. It will leave from Royal Park at 10am and 11am.
Members of the Tamar Bike Users Group will be on hand to help pump tyres, inspect bikes and offering riding tips on the course.
Sally’s Ride is an annual multi-event cycling fundraiser for preventing youth suicide.
The event has been run by the Rotary Club of Central Launceston since 2009.
The ride was founded in 2002 by Sally Fletcher when she rode solo around the state to raise money for youth mental health.
In 2017, Tasmanian Institute of Sport cycling teams will compete in the 45, 70, 100 and 160 kilometre rides.
To go in the draw to win a children’s bike, enter the family ride at www.sallysride.com.au.
All entries received before November 1 will receive a free meal voucher.
More than $300,000 raised over the years for youth suicide prevention, with organisers happy with last year’s event.
Sally’s Ride will be held on November 19.
