More than 200 cyclists ride into Goulburn early next month on a campaign to raise money to find a cure for cancer.

 

The Tour de Cure Signature event will ride from Sydney to Geelong via the Snowy Mountains with a stopover in Goulburn on Saturday, May 4th.

 

While in Goulburn, the tour will present a $10,000 donation to a local cancer project.

 

A spokesperson says raising awareness that one in three cancers is preventable is also a key focus of the Tour de Cure.

 

Cyclists who have individual fund raising targets will engage with communities in various ways, including through social media.

 

The route through this area includes the centres of Bundanoon and Bungonia, Goulburn, Tarago, Bungendore and Canberra.

Goulburn's Kyle Cranston has emerged as the Australian Open Decathlon champion following the National Championships in Sydney.

 

Held last week at the Homebush athletics track, Cranston scored two personal bests in Shot Putt and the 1500 metres.

 

With five events held on the first day, it wasn't until the javelin throw, the third last event on the second day, that he began his run to the national title.

 

Up until then he was in fourth position.

 

Because of his win, he will now attend the Oceania Games in Townsville in June.

 

Kyle Cranston is training hard and focused on making the Australian team for the Tokyo Olympics.

The Upper Lachlan Shire Council is exploring the future of housing needs in its area and wants the feedback of its constituents.

 

General manager, John Bell says a process will commence soon to prepare a Housing Strategy to guide planning and development of housing in the shire's 12 villages.

 

The strategy will concentrate on the next decade.

 

Mr Bell says the first step is engagement with the community to seek their vision, views and recommendations on how growth should happen in the short, medium and long term.

 

Workshops on the strategy will be held in Taralga and Crookwell on Tuesday, April 16th and at Bigga and Gunning on the following day.

 

Another will be staged at Collector on Thursday the 18th.
