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.
