This year’s Ride4Rotary event was bigger and better than ever. On a beautiful late autumn day, Rotary Clubs of the Illawarra, managers, staff, clients and supporters of SYSF, and a multitude of riders from all walks of life gathered at the Unanderra Velodrome. Our own Rowan Huxtable set the tone for the day by being the first rider on the track and setting a cracking pace. By mid morning we had over 20 riders enjoying the Velodrome experience.
People mingled and chatted as new riders turned up. A number of our Sunrise members came along to help marshal the riders and ensure a safe experience.
After a gruelling ride what better than a cup of coffee and a sausage sandwich. Some people even had two?
The actual money raised is still being tallied but will exceed $16,000, well ahead of last year’s donations.
