THE Atherton Rotary club has decided to throw their support behind the proposed Seven Sisters Cycleway and has produced brochures about the Pinnacle Pocket and Seven Sisters Cycleway. 

The proposed Seven Sisters Cycleway is a 70+km loop of mountain biking and walking trails in and around the southern Tablelands area. 

Tablelands Regional Council has agreed to provide principal support for the cycleway however a more detailed report which needs to include costings will need to be presented to council before any further development. 

Funding for the trail must  fall on the Sixty and Overs (SAOs) cycling club who initially put forward the proposal at last month’s council meeting, however if approved council will take on whole of life and maintenance responsibilities.

Atherton Rotary President Mick Brzozowski wanted to use the brochures as a way to inform the community about the proposed cycleway and its benefits. 

“Atherton Rotary has decided to get involved to help promote this cycleway and activities for young families and people to go on these rides and walks,” he said.

“We have helped by donating money for brochures to be developed advertising this proposal and its benefits. 

“We are trying to help with the mental health and wellbeing of people and by doing this advertising so people know about it, they too can get out there and explore locally.” 

Atherton Rotary has produced 250 copies of the Pinnacle Pocket Seven Sisters Cycle brochure which contains information about the trail and aims to inform locals about the benefits of the proposed cycleway. 

The brochures are now available at TRC information centres and bike and sports stores in and around the southern Tablelands.
