THE Central Goldfields Shire is encouraging residents to enjoy a bike ride on Sunday.
The event “Ride to Market” is the official opening of the Maryborough-Carisbrook bike path, an initiative of the Central Goldfields Bicycle Advisory Group.
The path will provide locals with a safe path between Maryborough and Carisbrook.
Central Goldfields Shire recreation manager Martin Mark said the free bike ride would be a great event for the whole family. “We will have marshals in place until 1pm to ensure safe transit, and it’s an opportunity to try one the shire’s newest facilities,” he said.
The ride will begin at Sutton Tools in Maryborough then finish at the Maryborough Lions Club Tourist Market in Carisbrook.
A healthy barbecue will be put on at the market courtesy of the Maryborough Lions Club and the Goldfields Grampians Healthy Together team.
