To celebrate NSW Bike Week, Fairfield City Council invites the community to join in a free bike ride around the City on 24 September, 9am-1pm.

Participants of Tour de Fairfield, an easy pace 20km round trip from Fairfield Showground through Orphan School Creek to Fairfield Youth & Community Centre, will discover the City’s beautiful parks and local attractions.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said traveling around the City by bike is one of the best ways to enjoy Fairfield’s natural and built assets.

“Council has laid more than 90km of cycleways to ensure our community has safe, healthy and fun ways of getting around our beautiful City,” Mayor Carbone said.

“I encourage people to take part in Tour de Fairfield with friends and family,” Mayor Carbone said. “It’s a fantastic way to enjoy cycling and the benefits it has on your health and wellbeing.”

“The tour will be guided by experienced Western Sydney Cycling Network ride leaders who are familiar with the route, ensuring everyone feels comfortable and safe.”

Tour de Fairfield participants must wear a correctly fitted helmet and ensure their bike is in good working order, wear sunscreen and bring a water bottle. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

A free lunch at Fairfield Youth and Community Centre is included at this event, while Roads and Maritime Services will provide participants with free cycling merchandise.

If a bike is required, please attend the Bike Shed in Fairfield Showground between 9am and 1pm on Wednesday 20 September to be fitted prior to the ride.
