Champion breakfast for cyclists

YOU can breakfast like a champion on Friday if you ride your bike to work on that day - and preferably many others.

The Breakfast of Champions is an idea from Climate Change Australia to encourage more people to ride their bikes to work.

Riders on Friday can test their ecological footprint on the Clarence Valley Footprint-o-Meter.

But Climate Change spokesperson Claire Purvis said there are other advantages to riding.

"Crossing the river by car is no fun at all when you're stuck in traffic, and you can't even see the river properly," she said.

"During peak hour a bike trip is quicker, you get a fabulous river view, and parking is no problem at the other end."

Anyone riding to work on Friday should drop into McClymont Park Grafton, on the northern end of the Grafton Bridge, from 7am to 9am for a pancake breakfast.
