The Autumn Shire Shoot cycling series featuring riders from the Ballina and Byron Bay cycling clubs comes to a head this Sunday with a criterium in the Arts and Industry estate.

Byron Bay Cycling Club members Marco Goldberg (29 points), David Scully (26), and Matt Jones (25) sit at the top of the leader board with just one race in the series remaining.
