A CYCLING event that has emerged as one of the city’s most popular will kick off on Sunday.
Scores of people are expected to flock to the Victory Memorial Gardens to cheer on the cyclists as they make their way to the finish line.
And making the challenge all the more sweeter, a craft beer and cider festival will again serve up the delights for rehydration, with a number of popular brewers on board.
Gears and Beers festival organiser Phil McIntosh said the event is open to the community and is ecstatic with its support.
“Last year, it was a wonderful event, it was sensational … this year, we’re going to double that,” he said. “The good thing is, it’s all for charity … and that’s what we’re about.”
The festival starts at 11am, with a $5 entry fee at the gate. Pre-registered cycling events kick off as early as 7.30am.
