New Family route - still something for everyone
In its 14th year, the Big Canberra Bike Ride now offers more route options to cater for all - from beginners to the more seasoned riders.
The 28km family ride has been changed to take in some of the shared path networks that make Canberra such a fantastic city to cycle in. The cycling enthusiasts that take on the 68km and 105km rides will experience the iconic cycling roads around Cotter and Uriarra,
This has always been one of the highlights of the year for Pedal Power and Canberra’s cycling community and this year we wanted to highlight some of the excellent shared path network we have around Canberra,” Pedal Power Executive Officer John Armstrong said.
With our new family route, riders get to experience the beautiful sections of Lake Burley Griffin as well as enjoy the fantastic cycling facility we have out at Stromlo,” Mr Armstrong said.
Entertainment for all the family
The Event Village this year is going to bigger and better than ever. Those seeking refreshment will be well catered for with hot food and snacks, connoisseur coffee and gourmet ice cream. There will also be live music, a huge jumping castle, face painting and if you are feeling adventurous you could even try your hand at riding a Penny Farthing.
