Motor cycle safety will be to the fore in the Goulburn Mulwaree area this week, as the 'Look for Joe Rider' campaign gets underway.

 

As part of Motorcycle Awareness Month, the campaign is designed to make motorists aware that other road users can be on motorbikes.

 

Joe Rider, in a bright pink vest, will travel around Goulburn and surrounds and those who spot him can enter for a chance to win one of two $50 fuel vouchers each weekday.

 

A $50 voucher will also be given away at the end of the week to someone who looked and registered in the scheme, but didn't spot the pink vested Joe.

 

Entries can be made online or through council's Facebook Page.
