What started as a bike ride with a few friends has turned into a group of over 100 members from across East Gippsland.
Local MP Darren Chester recently met with members of These Girls & Boys Can Ride and presented them with ‘100% Authentic Gippslander’ t-shirts in recognition of their efforts in supporting local businesses.
“I am a huge advocate for keeping active and supporting local businesses and this group is doing both by riding around East Gippsland and enjoying meals at different venues along the way,” Mr Chester said.
“The group utilises the East Gippsland Rail Trail and the current upgrades along the trail will help improve their experience with a smoother riding surface.
“Improving community infrastructure means locals can stay active and explore our region via bike or walking.”
