New web platform is the ultimate local riding guide

Published: 13 Oct 2022

Whether you ride, roll, skate or wheel, the new Ride Mackay web platform has something for you.

This innovative platform has been designed by council to be the ultimate guide for active transport in our region.

Mayor Greg Williamson said it showcased a host of features for those who liked to travel in an inexpensive, environmentally friendly and hip-pocket-friendly way.

“There are dynamic video flythroughs of our best trails and interactive maps to help you navigate the more than 250 kilometres of shared pathway in our region,” Mayor Williamson said.

“There are also video guides on riding etiquette, safety and maintenance, plus information on riding-related events, news and promotions,” he said.

“Updates on major cycling-related projects like the Pioneer Valley Mountain Bike Trail can also be found on this platform.”

The Mayor said council would be launching Ride Mackay on National Ride to Work Day (Wednesday, October 19).

“To celebrate Ride to Work Day and the launch of Ride Mackay, we will be putting on free breakfasts for those who use active transport to do their morning commute next Wednesday morning,” he said.

Breakfast venues include:

  • Vintage Kiss Café, Marian
  • Third Ground Coffee, Sarina
  • Mary-ann Vintage Farmhouse Kitchen and J&J Wired Bird Coffee at the Bluewater Quay Farmers Market.
