A wheely good event

Looking for that elusive slice of spring break from all of the bad weather that has been hitting the district.

The weather forecast is improving and all roads lead to Greenethorpe on Saturday, September 24.

You'll find all manner of cyclists at Le Tour de Greenethorpe this weekend. Pictured at last year's event is Penny Farthing cyclist John Kitchens of Bathurst.

Le Tour de Greenethorpe is on this Saturday and it’s a great family day out.

Participants will be taking part in a ride past the Canola filled paddocks and historic Iandra castle, with a bacon and egg roll or treat from the French inspired patisserie and coffee as a reward on your return.

There is also a free jumping castle for the young or young at heart and a community garage sale with plants, books and lots of goodies to buy.

There is a ride for everyone with the lycra crew off on a 42km challenge at 10am, a more leisurely paced 5km ride a few minutes after and a kids ride around the closed village streets at 10:30am.

The cost to take part is $15 per adult.

Registration Starts at 9:30am.

School and preschool children will ride for free (but for insurance purposed they still need to register).

All money raised goes to the upkeep of the Greenethorpe Soldiers Memorial Hall.

Following the success from last year the whole of community garage sale in the Hall will start at 9am.

Participants set off.
