Cycling in Sydney Australia
For the very first time, Newtown Festival will host a new and exciting competition to engage kids in cycling AND re-cycling.
‘Bling Your Bike’ is an event designed for young bike riders with a creative flair. Primary school kids are invited to decorate their bikes at home, with re-used & recycled materials. Children will ride their blinged bikes to the Bike Valet Parking area on Festival day, and join other entrants for a parade through Camperdown Memorial Rest Park.
The City of Sydney Cycling Ambassadors – Nell Schofields & Ian Roberts will judge the ‘Bling your Bike’ entrants based on their creativity with re-used and recycled materials.
‘Bling your Bike’ aims to encourage kids to celebrate cycling, become familiar with Bike Valet Parking and also foster an awareness of the environmental benefits of re-using and recycling.
Eureka Brands are generously sponsoring ‘Bling your Bike’ with fantastic prizes of Nutcase helmets – and winners will parade their Bling on the Kids Stage at the festival.
