Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a grant of almost $10,000 to build a new carpark.
“This is great news for the community and the more than 100 Dirty Wheels club members,” he said.
“I would like to congratulate the club and all of its members for working to develop this public mountain bike facility – the only one on the Northern Rivers.
“Mountain biking is a sustainable, non-discriminatory sport which can be enjoyed by anyone who can ride a bike.
“Development of the park will enable the club to grow, train riders, run social rides and hold competitive events which will attract new riders and visitors to New Italy.”
Projects under the Stronger Communities Program, like this one, are selected by a community consultation committee that assist with identifying potential projects.
