Event:
Logan loves lycra for charity
On Sunday 28 July the streets of Logan will be alive with bikes, lycra and safety helmets as the Logan City Charity Bike Ride pushes off for the fourth year, this year raising awareness and funds to help prevent type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases.

If you're physically fit, have a bike that's in sound mechanical order, and don't mind an early start then you're invited to participate. There are 2 rides - the more challenging 100 kilometre ride through 33 Logan suburbs and outer rural areas, or the less taxing 40 kilometre ride.

The event is organised by the Rotary Clubs of Loganholme and Beenleigh and funds will go to Diabetes Queensland, Queensland's peak body representing people with diabetes. You can set up your own fundraising profile or sponsor a friend on the ride at Diabetes Queensland's Everyday Hero page here.


Even if you don't own or ride a bike you can still get involved. It's not just pedal power that runs an event like this, there's plenty of people power needed too. The organisers are looking for volunteers over the age of 18 to help as course marshals, rest stop helpers and start and finish helpers. You'll even get to wear a high visibility vest and cap and join in the free sausage sizzle at the event's conclusion. If you'd like to help you can access the briefing document here and download the Volunteer Form here.
