Jaenke throws her support behind community safety fund ride

AS an elite sportswoman, Kym Jaenke pushes herself to the limit at major events around the world.

However, she remains a huge fan of Sunday's 24//7 Stockland Cycling Safety Fund Community Ride in Ipswich.

The event offers fun-focused cycling over three distances for a range of riders.

"It's something that a three-year-old child can do with their brother and sister and also with their parents as well,'' Jaenke said.

"It's good to have organised rides, a police permit on the roads and everything so it will be safe and well controlled.''

People can still nominate to participate in Sunday's events starting at Sovereign Dr at Deebing Hts.

The race distances available are a 45km ride, 25km ride and family ride.

Each ride registration includes a free breakfast burger, coffee, bottle of water en route, jumping castle and choo choo train for the kids.

24//7 CSF's major focus is to establish a safe cycling centre in Ipswich. Other goals centre around raising general awareness of safe cycling for the community.

People can register online for Sunday's 24//7 Stockland Cycling Safety Fund Community Ride.

A kit can be collected from the registration desk from 6am on Sunday. Participants are asked to arrive at least 45 minutes before the start of their ride.
