South Burnett Regional Council will be trialling an eight-week free bike hire scheme commencing 16 May 2019 as a follow on from the ‘Get Out Get Active Program.’

The trial will see 15 mountain bikes (some with baby seats) and helmets available for hire at no cost, from the Kingaroy and Wondai Visitor Information Centres and Boondooma Dam and Recreation Park.  The bike hire will be available to everyone on a first in first served basis and is part of Council’s strategy to promote health and fitness in our community.

Mayor Keith Campbell said, “The South Burnett is blessed with some excellent cycling trails including the Kilkivan to Kingaroy Rail Trail. This free bike hire scheme is a fantastic opportunity for residents and visitors to get active on the South Burnett Section of the Rail Trail without having to make the investment of purchasing their own bike.”

To hire a bike, participants will be required to fill out a Bike Hire Waiver Form and bring along a copy of their valid driver's licence, passport or Australian proof of age card. A copy of the ID will be held as a deposit for the duration of the hire and will be given back to participants when they return their bike to the point of hire.
For further information, contact Council on 4189 9100.
