A night at the new Moama Five Mile mountain bike track will kick off Parks Week events in Murray Valley National and regional parks on Monday.
Parks Week runs from March 3 to 9 and aims to encourage residents ways to get out and experience their local environment.
National Parks and Wildlife Service south west area manager Daniel Basham said the Cycle the Park event was a great chance to ride among the river red gums.
‘‘Members of the Echuca-Moama Cycling Club will be on hand to give riders tips as they clip in for the evening to pump up their skills,’’ he said.
Mr Basham said entry was free and sections were suitable for all ability levels and a barbecue with refreshments would follow the ride.
On Sunday, March 8, Paddle the Park will take people on a kayaking adventure from the Edward River bridge picnic area near Mathoura.
‘‘For beginners, there’s the chance to gain some paddling skills and for the more experienced there’s time to enjoy part of the Edward River canoe trail before topping up their energy with a free sausage sizzle lunch,’’ Mr Basham said.
The event is free for children under, while adults pay $10.
Bookings for Cycle the Park can be made with Andrew Clapham on 0438 288 958 and bookings for Paddle the Park can be made with Rob on 0428 585 227.
