Wheels Getting Ready to Turn Again!
- Published: 07 June 2016
This year marks the 19th running of the 'Hell on Wheels' mountain bike tour event supporting the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.
Being held from the 8-15th October, this years tour will see riders taking on some of the most spectacular trails our region has to offer. Starting in Grafton, this years event will take in the towns of Copmanhurst, Jackadgery, Coutts Crossing, Red Rock, Wooli, Maclean and Brushgrove.
Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter spokesperson, Zeke Huish commented "Each year this event continues to amaze the riders with some of the incredible scenery they get to see once they hit the back roads and dirt trails around our region".
"The riders not only enjoy the social comradery of their fellow riders, they also know that their support is helping to raise vital funds to keep the rescue helicopter service flying" said Mr Huish.
This years ride is once again proudly sponsored by local company Hurford Hardwood. To find out more or to register, please call the helibase in Lismore on 6627 4444.
