City of Adelaidelor and father of two, Sandy Wilkinson, said City of Adelaide was excited to support the family friendly event.

“It promises to be a great day for all the family and all options are cycle friendly, so I also encourage people to ‘get on your bike’ and get involved,” said Sandy.

The top two fundraisers win a Witchelina Nature Reserve stay or Hiltaba Nature Reserve Stay (four people for three days).The next four fundraisers win a double pass to see the upcoming UB40 or Boney M gigs at Thebarton Theatre.
