Funding for New Sydney Rides Festival Supported

The Council's Cultural and Community Services Committee unanimously supported sponsoring the Spring Cycle on Monday night.

The Spring Cycle and Sydney Bicycle Film Festival are signature events of a new Sydney Rides Festival to be held 9-16 October. The new festival will be part of a week long celebration of cycling - which also includes cycling events for families, commuters and people who enjoy bike culture. The week will include Ride to Work Day, street fairs, social rides, film and a Bikes Rock concert.

Sponsorship of $50,000 for the Spring Cycle and $16,667 for the Sydney Bicycle Film Festival are recommended - and the Council will consider these on Monday night.

Cycling is a convenient, healthy and enjoyable way to travel through the City and I look forward to the Festival later this year.
