Cycle for climate change - Council

FRASER Coast cyclists are being urged to put their pedal power behind climate change.

Council urged cyclists of all ages and abilities to hit the pedals in Hervey Bay next month for Wildlife Queensland's Cycle for Change bike rid.

The annual event starts at 8.30am at ESA Park in Point Vernon on April 28, finishing at Dayman Park in Urangan.

Riders will stop at various points of interest along the 14km ride, as five local experts discuss the impacts of climate change on our wildlife and what climate change means for our coastline.

Refreshments are provided en route to the finish line, where riders will also be greeted with a free sausage sizzle and cool drink.

Entry is free but registration is essential and closes on April 18.

To be a part of this contact Sara Gerdsen on 4129 5789 or Carol Bussey on 4129 5979.
