The nineteenth annual Dungog PedalFest is off and away this coming weekend.
All roads will lead to Dungog this weekend for the annual PedalFest bike ride
DungogShire residents wishing to register for the whole weekend are urged to enquire at the Dungog Visitor Information Centre for the locals’ special registration rate.
Three events on the weekend have particular appeal for participants from the local community.
Friday afternoon’s Kids & Cobwebs charity ride gathers at 3.30pm at Dungog Public School in Chapman Street for a 4pm kick-off.
Typically 200 or more riders of all ages complete the six-kilometre circuit incorporating some lesser-travelled sections of the town.
Three dollars takes you on the road and wins a sausage sandwich at the end.
Saturday morning’s Fosterton loop ride pulls in the hardy locals who are up for 22 kms of ups and downs around the shire’s most scenic circuit.
But the James Theatre plays its partin PedalFest too, and the can’t-stop-your-feet-tapping musical ‘Sunshine on Leith’ (PG) is screening at 2.30 on Saturday afternoon and 5pm on Sunday featuring lots of Scottish accents and the well-known music of The Proclaimers.
Saturday night features the great PedalFest tradition of Mulga Bill’s family bush dance at the Bandon Grove Hall.
It runs in family friendly hours – 6pm – 10pm – and the bush band Bushfire features world-class musicianship.
$50 gets the family in the door and sausage-sizzle-fed as well and proceeds help both the rescue helicopter and hall maintenance.
PedalFest is a home-grown event run by a dedicated local team raising money each year for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter that the local community so depends upon.
So ring up family and friends, check the websitewww.pedalfest.org.au and be a part of the celebration of the scenery and community friendliness of the beautiful Williams River valley.
