Start ped­alling in Septem­ber to win big

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

LOVE to Ride is back on the Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil for 2017, en­cour­ag­ing busi­nesses to get their staff on bikes for just ten min­utes a day through­out Septem­ber.

Af­ter a stel­lar 2016, with al­most 800 peo­ple rid­ing across the Sunny Coast clock­ing up over 47,000km, 2017 is set to have even more peo­ple ped­alling, from across Coolum to Caloun­dra.

The Love to Ride Chal­lenge pits lo­cal busi­nesses against each other to earn the most points, prizes, and gloat­ing rights as the win­ners of Love to Ride 2017.

The chal­lenge works on a points sys­tem, with points earned for en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to ride a bike, dis­tance rid­den, days rid­den and some great bonus points for new riders.

The Love to Ride Cam­paign is a joint ini­tia­tive with the Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil en­cour­ag­ing more peo­ple to get on a bike even if it is the first time since child­hood.

To get Coast­ers ped­alling along some of our iconic beaches or moun­tain bike tracks, the Love to Ride team have sourced some great prizes from lo­cal busi­nesses.

Riders who ride for just ten min­utes through­out the month are in the run­ning to win a two night stay at Tree Tops com­plete with cham­pagne, bathrobes and choco­late, or a lux­u­ri­ous high tea at Flax­ton Gar­dens or even bike vouch­ers to get your­self kit­ted out for the comp.

More prizes are be­ing added ev­ery day.
