Join cancer fight in Cycle for Life ride

04 August, 2014

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is encouraging residents to join the fight against cancer by registering for the Cancer Council Queensland’s Cycle for Life charity bike ride.

On Sunday, 14th September, the ride will kick-off at Musgrave Park in South Brisbane at 7am, loop around the river and along some of Brisbane’s key inner city bikeways and finish back at the start location at 10am.

The event is sponsored by Brisbane City Council, providing approximately 500 CityCycles and courtesy helmets for the charity ride.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the event would raise money for Cancer Council Queensland and help spread awareness of active and healthy transport options.

“All funds raised will help improve the prospects of preventing, detecting, effectively treating and surviving a cancer diagnosis in Queensland through local research,” Cr Quirk said.

“Anyone 17 years or over will ride a CityCycle in the event, with younger riders able to participate if they bring their own bike.

“Riders are encouraged to stay on after the ride for a family event featuring refreshments, stalls and entertainment in Musgrave Park.”

Cr Quirk said great prizes would be on offer for participants, including a $5000 travel voucher donated by JCDecaux.

“Cycle for Life aligns with our vision for active and healthy lifestyles in Brisbane,” Cr Quirk said.

“By registering to donate, we can all help raise awareness of one of Queensland’s most serious health issues while boosting fitness in the community.”

CityCycle places are limited. To be involved or to learn more about Cycle for Life, visit cycleforlife.org.au.
