Shared cy­cle track opens

Whanganui Midweek - - COMMUNITY LINK -

There were shrieks of de­light from Tawhero and St Mar­cellin school stu­dents as a shared cy­cle track link­ing the two schools was of­fi­cially opened on Mon­day, 5 Novem­ber.

Fund­ing for the track was cour­tesy of Bike On New Zealand Char­i­ta­ble Trust and bene­fac­tors Dora and Bruce Gol­lan. The Coun­cil's Ac­tive Trans­port Fa­cil­i­ta­tor, Nor­man Grueb­sch, says its pur­pose is to in­crease the cy­cling abil­i­ties and con­fi­dence of younger rid­ers, pro­vid­ing them with a safe and ac­ces­si­ble place to hone their cy­cling skills. It will also be avail­able to the wider com­mu­nity as a walk­ing track.
