LE TOUR de CYGNET
Tasmanian Premier, Will Hodgman, rides into Cygnet prior to the first Tour de Cygnet cycling event in February last year
The first Tour de Cygnet attracted about 180 riders for two events – one a 17k family “dawdle” through beside Port Cygnet Bay and the other an “endurance” event of 38k.
With lessons learned from the first event, April’s will see a tougher endurance event, a family event just that little bit easier and an added special route deemed “child-safe” as it sticks mainly to a back road with little traffic.
In keeping with the nature of Le Weekend @ Cygnet as a celebration of the area’s French heritage, Le Tour de Cygnet will not be a race but a joyful outing for cycle enthusiasts, family cyclists and those who bike occasionally for the fun of it.
Everyone has a chance to win the prizes on offer – but it’ll help you win if your bike and outfit have a distinctly French flavour to them.
The details of the 2017 Tour de Cygnet are unfolding so stay tuned.
