Riders set out on safer cycling push

HUNDREDS of cyclists joined forces for the second annual 24/7 Cycling Safety Fund Stockland Community Ride at Sovereign Pocket.

Led by Mayor Paul Pisasale and Stockland regional manager Michael Stone, the Sunday event had even more riders than last year.

Participants ranged from children to seniors and super-fit cyclists who took part in several group rides around Sovereign Pocket.

The ride was organised by the 24/7 CSF, which aims to raise awareness of safe riding and establish an off-road cycling facility in Ipswich.

Mr Stone said he was delighted with this year's turnout.

"It was great to see so many cyclists of all ages taking part in this very worth community event and also enjoying the Ipswich scenery with family and friends," he said.

Sovereign Pocket near Yamanto is only 10 minutes from the Ipswich CBD.
