More riders asked to join ride

ENTHUSIASTIC bicycle riders on the Tweed are again gearing up for a four-day charity mountain bike ride around the Far North Coast – taking in some of the most scenic riding routes in the region.

The organisers – Rotary Club of Murwillumbah Central executives – are calling for extra riders to register their interest for the marathon event, being held from late March.

“We've got a few but we need some more riders,” said Tony Worrad, president of Murwillumbah Central Rotary, which has been running the charity ride for six years.

Club treasurer Michael Grisedale said the ride, from Thursday, March 31 to Sunday, April 3, would begin at Tweed Heads, taking in Bryon Bay, Ballina, Wardell, Lismore and Kyogle before returning through rainforest roads to Murwillumbah.

He said the mountain bike ride would raise funds for Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children (Romac) and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Riders can register with Denis Hallworth (02 66779302 or denish@onthenet.com.au).
