Riders turn back clock for Hervey Bay 150th celebration ride

LOCAL bike riders will join the fun of Hervey Bay's 150th birthday celebrations, dressing up and riding old bicycles, including a penny farthing, on Sunday, September 29.

A special ride will start at Urangan Pier and go along the Esplanade to the Hervey Bay Historical Village and Museum in Zephyr St.

Cyclists will be dressed in period clothing for the event and head off from the pier at about 9am for the leisurely Esplanade ride.

Organiser and cyclist Michelle Lennard said anyone was welcome to join the ride.

"Just get into the spirit by dressing up," she said.

"You never know - you could be a major prize winner in the historical village's dress-up competition."

Arrival at the museum is expected to be about 9.30am.

For more information, phone Michelle on 0422 164 268 or email admin@spokesabout.com.au.
