There’s more to bikes than just pedals

If it was about a “hands up for a great day out”, this was a ringing endorsement of the Wodonga Council’s bedazzle your bike day from Justin, Joshua and Matthew Gill, Harry Poole, Robert Kelson, Sebastian Poole and James Kelson. Picture: JOHN RUSSELL

FEATHERS, stickers and decorative paper plates all made for great bike decorations yesterday, even if some of them lasted only as long as the ride home.

Wodonga brothers Justin, Joshua and Matthew Gill had a blast at Wodonga Council’s be-dazzle your bike event.

They explored Belvoir Park and Sumsion Gardens on a treasure hunt for things to transform their bikes.

Then, Border artists Melanie Ruth and Bessie McGaffin were on hand to help children dress their bikes and scooters.

“They found beads and stickers in bushes and under grass clippings,” their mum June Gill said.

“They had so much fun — we had a good giggle on the way home because some pieces didn’t stay on the bikes and we had to keep stopping to pick it up.”

Enjoying the be-dazzle your bike event was Harry Poole, 8, Justin Gill, 6, Robert Kelson, 5, Joshua Gill, 10, Sebastian Poole, 10,  Matthew Gill, 10,and James Kelson, 7.
