It's a great place to be if you can create a space where families, children, adults, older people can all enjoy the one activity together. Newcastle managed to bring all the different generations it could reaach out to to come along to the inaugural Newie Night Ride.
There's something about safety in numbers which makes riding in a group a lot safer and fun than if you were riding alone.
Loving the Rail Trails Australia group. It's a group who advocate for the conversion of railways tracks into cycle trails. I can't believe there are hundreds and hundreds of railway tracks that have been converted and still there are loads yet to be converted.
Some friends from work decided to test the Newcastle Fernleigh Trail out. Way to go Newcastle! Totally embracing the cycling culture and getting more use out of these hidden gems. This tunnel was covered up for years before this project, and according to Cath "really stank when it first opened up". It didn't smell today though, making for an awesome 2 hour ride.
