NSW Spring Cycle 2011

Last Sunday,  16th of October 2011, was a momentous day for me and my friends as we joined numerous riders all across NSW as well as other states in the annual NSW Spring Cycle. We started the race at St. Leonards, North Sydney and ended at the Olympic Park in Homebush. It was more than a 50 km ride but it was a fun and exciting event. Not to mention that the event itself is a fundraising event for three charities, namely: National Breast Cancer Foundation, Amy Gillett Foundation and Bicycle NSW Environment Trust.

Although tiring, my friends and I were able to finish the ride in 4 to 5 hours, a feat better than last year. It seemed that this year there were more participants compared to last year. Moreover, I was very happy to see kids as young as two being part of this wonderful event, taking part in awareness as well as learning the importance of exercise in having a healthy body and mind. In addition to this, is the fact that it is a good way for parents and children to bond, close friends to have fun, work colleagues to build rapport and, I reckon, lovers to strengthen relationships.

I am looking forward to next year’s Spring Cycle Race and I hope to see more such events for the good of our society!
