Linda Cash and Meg Main from Tweed’s own Ocean Pool Odyssey Team will be doing a quick presentation and Q&A at the beginning of the night, which kicks off at 7pm.

Linda and Meg will share stories about their recent charity ride where they pedalled their eBikes the entire length of the NSW coast from Eden to Tweed Heads (1909kms), visiting 79 Ocean Pools along the way.

‘URP would like to thank Meg Main for raising many thousands of dollars for refugees during this incredible ride,’ a spokesperson for the group said.

‘We would also like to thank the entire team of riders for making this magnificent effort possible.’

‘Come and show your support for cycling in the beautiful Tweed Valley, and for the efforts of these amazing women!’

This will be the last hurrah for the Ocean Pool Odyssey Team, with their GoFundMe page closing soon.
