10km ride attracting entries

By | Latest News | No Comments

THE C.ex McDonald’s Cycle Challenge heads back to where it all began with this month’s rides to launch from the Jetty Foreshores on Sunday, October 28. The Coulter family have been the first entrants to sign up for the 10km family ride, with their motivation being a fun family day out in support of local charities.

“It will be great to start out together in an organised ride,” Jay said.

“It really was Zoe’s idea to get together as a family and ride,” Melinda said.

The family ride will be the most picturesque of all the rides, going along Jordan Esplanade than right out along the breakwall, if the loop is done twice is a 10km ride. “Thanks to the fantastic work done by Coffs Council in the Jetty precinct, and the support of Crown Lands Department, riders will have the opportunity to cycle right next to ocean, out along the breakwall, and maybe see some dolphins along the way. How special would that be” said event manager Judy Smith.






Raleigh Bridge is open for the Challenge

By | Latest News | No Comments

The Raleigh bridge will be open for cyclist during the Cycle Challenge.  Restrictions will be in place to ensure the safety of the riders. A ‘tunnel’ has been created  on the main bridge that currently allows buses and local traffic to cross the bridge at specific times each day.  This tunnel will be in use during the Challenge, allowing cyclists to distance themselves from the refurbishment work on the bridge. 
The safety measures that will be in place for cyclist include:
     Single file through the tunnel
     Speed reduction to 10km through the tunnel
     Traffic marshals on either end of the bridge and on the Raleigh roundabout – please follow their instructions.

We would like to thank the staff at RMS for their efforts in ensuring that our riders will be able to access the bridge.
