The 34th annual Spring Financial Group Spring Cycle is right around the corner. With a new, fourth ride option, and plenty of people excited to Ride the Bridge, it’s a great opportunity to step back and see the bigger picture.
The event has grown from a small ride event 33 years ago, to what now sees around 10,000 people of all ages and experiences ride together on one massive display of bicycle advocacy. As the only cycling event that closes lanes of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and dedicates that space to bike riders, being involved as a rider or a volunteer is akin to standing up and being counted as one of the 1.25 million bike riders across NSW who we represent when we speak to the NSW Government for better biking outcomes.
By participating in Spring Cycle you’ll be part of our critical mass, demonstrating that the vital work we do is paramount to making bike riding accepted and normal on our roads. Adding your two (or three) wheels to our event means you will be seen by our side by the likes of The Hon Melinda Pavey, Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight, and The Hon Andrew Constance, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, as we work with them to ensure the best outcomes from their portfolios for all vulnerable road users. With you by our side, we can roll ahead to create a better environment for cycling for us all.
It’s not too late to gear up and ride or volunteer in the Spring Financial Group Spring Cycle on Sunday 15 October 2017.
