KIDS COLOUR RIDE – 9am Sunday 20th May, 2018. Canelands Park, Mackay

A free event for kids aged 2 – 13 to launch the 2018 Hail Creek Mine River 2 Reef Ride. Kids will ride from Caneland Park along the Bluewater Trail back to Caneland. We will have various distances suited to all age groups (up to 8km). Parents are welcome to accompany younger younger children and we will have marshals supervising along the trail. Training wheels are more than welcome!

During the ride we will have a couple of colour throws and maybe a few sneaky ones. The colour powder is made from non-toxic, water soluble corn starch. We ask all kids to wear a white t-shirt to make the most of the colour.
