Hi Folks,

As part of the "Moving Planet" event to be held at Orchard Youth Park this coming Sunday, the event organiser is asking cyclists to cycle down to the event in support of the objective of this event of getting people to move away from using fossil fuel, to cycle instead of driving. To support the move of getting more people to cycle, Safe Cycling Task Force will be conducting Safe Cycling Clinics at 11am and 2pm on Sunday, 25th September.
