Hop into saddle for National Bike Week

CYCLISTS in the Dispatch district are being urged to get into the saddle this weekend to help celebrate National Bike Week.

The initiative is designed to encourage riders of all ages, especially families, to enjoy the great outdoors.

The scheme also urges families to cycle as part of a healthier lifestyle.

Anyone who does take to cycle routes throughout the Dispatch district is reminded to make sure they are safe and wear helmets, safety equipment and high-visibility clothing if riding at night.
