ORGANISERS of a massive community cycling event have urged locals to “get on their bikes and join the revolution”.
The third annual Pedal the Peel Challenge will be held on October 12 and is expected to be the largest running of the event yet.
Aimed at riders of all ages and ability levels, the challenge will also include a fancy dress component, with prizes for the most outrageous outfits.
“It’s time to get off the lounge, dust off the treadly, gather the family, organise your friends and colleagues or just come on your own,” Pedal the Peel co-organiser Terry Robinson said.
Mr Robinson said the event had been specially designed to cater for everyone, with a 16km fully- escorted challenge, a 30km and 55km challenge and for the fully-fit, lycra-clad brigade, a 115km “super challenge”.
Along each course, food, water and comfort stops are available and once the rider has completed their chosen challenge, they can kick back and relax by listening to the live band and refuelling with a steak or sausage sandwich and a drink – all inclusive in the registration fee.
The courses will commence at William Cowper campus on Moore Creek Rd.
Co-ordinated by the Rotary Club of Tamworth First Light, the challenge will raise funds for the Billabong Clubhouse, the Tamworth Salvation Army, Alzheimers Australia and Youth Insearch.
The event is proudly co-sponsored by The Northern Daily Leader.
