Parkside distributes Life Cycles funds
The Victoria Cycling Academy gathered outside Trek Bike Shop last week before a morning ride to accept half of the total $1,179.77 raised at the local film premiere of Life Cycles at Parkside in January.
The Victoria Cycling Academy is a junior-specific training centre for young up-and-coming cyclists. Head coach Steve Lund and team members helped run the sold-out fundraiser held at Parkside's HD movie theatre, taking tickets and ushering guests.
The remaining $589.88 was given to the South Island Mountain Bike Society (SIMBS), and will be used to help build and maintain local trails.
