Covering the Goulburn and Murray valleys

Seymour LifeCycle gears up

Registrations now open.

The countdown to Seymour LifeCycle 2013 has begun.

To be held March 24 from Kings Park, preparing for the bike ride is a great way to support Seymour Health and stay committed to those New Year’s Day resolutions of a healthier lifestyle.

There are also plenty of opportunities for volunteers to throw their support behind the day fundraiser, which will go towards vital medical equipment, or to man refreshment stations or act as marshals along the routes.

Seymour LifeCycle will build on the success of an inaugural 2011 bike ride, which saw nearly 100 riders, ranging in age from seven to 60.


This year’s event will consist of four rides ranging from a 40km family ride to 50km, 60km and 100km challenge rides — to suit casual riders or die-hard cycling enthusiasts.

The 40km return ride from Kings Park to Avenel in 2011 was a favourite for families with children 10 and older and those trying their first ride out of town.

Each ride offers participants an appreciation of the surrounding district’s scenic attractions.

The ride is organised by Seymour Health staff in conjunction with Mitchell Bicycle Users Group, supported by community individuals and groups, and sponsored by Cycling Victoria.
