The River News, Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - 9
A WARM welcome is being
planned for participants of
the Bicycle SA Annual Tour
(September 20-28) when they
visit Waikerie later this month.
About 200 cyclists and
50 volunteers from across
Australia, along with a handful of
international visitors, will reach
the town on Tuesday, September
23, for an overnight stay.
Participant and volunteer
Karen Richardson, of Waikerie,
is encouraging local businesses to
show their support for the event by
decorating their shop fronts with a
bicycle and balloons.
"Riders will be arriving around
lunchtime and will have the
afternoon and evening to spend
here to check out what we have to
offer," she said.
"As a rider and volunteer for
this [and past] events, I encourage
everyone to support the event
by parking a bike outside their
house or business premises with a
balloon attached, or a friendly sign,
as a welcome to the town.
"I know that riders appreciate
the acknowledgements made,
particularly in smaller towns they
visit along the way."
Ms Richardson said Bicycle SA
took pride in supporting country
South Australia by hosting its rides
in different regions each year, and
by paying local businesses and
sporting clubs to provide catering
and other services during the tour.
Among them is the Waikerie
Football Club, which will provide
the evening meal for cyclists and
volunteers during their stay.
Ms Richardson encouraged
locals to "get behind" the event.
"This is a great opportunity to
promote our town and region, as
most riders are from interstate,"
"This year there will also be a
handful of overseas visitors that
will be coming along for the ride."

Adelaide to Renmark from
