BULAHDELAH recently hosted a crew of bike riders from Tour De Cure with the Bulahdelah Community Hall being used for a comfort stop on their way to Sydney from Forster.

A sea of bikes with riders decked out in red descended on the town, all pedalling their way to making a difference.

John Lees told News Of The Area, “Originally they planned to stop at Bulahdelah and use the facilities at Wade Park but the inclement weather meant they needed a space to use should it start to rain.

“I was approached by one of the riders Anthony Carelli who asked if they could use the Men’s Shed, unfortunately the Men’s Shed doesn’t have the capacity to hold 30-50 people at a time so I suggested to use the hall.”

The Hall committee were very receptive to the riders using the hall, which was opened from 9.30am -12.30 for the riders use.

Riders came through the facility in groups of 30 at a time and then rode on to Sydney.

Bikes were parked in the rotunda out of the weather as the riders refreshed themselves and recharged ready for the next leg in the arduous journey.
