    May I thank Mr Tom Fisher for:

    – Convening the Transport action group within Sustainable Living Armidale;
    – Raising awareness of the existence of Bike Week three years ago; and
    – Continuing to convene the group and organise Bike Week events in Armidale. This includes successful applications for government funding to advertise Bike Week events i.e. each year.

    Thank-you Tom.

    Thank-you also to those who have supported Tom in organising each year’s events. I have not been one of them but I am reminded each year that riding a bicycle is a healthy and environmentally friendly method of transportation. With this, I will take to riding a bicycle. It is only a matter of time.

    Best regards,
    Tom Livanos.
