    Hi,

    I’m the vent coordinator for Bicycle NSW and I was out at the Manly Bike & Life festival yesterday; which was a great day.

    I saw the performers that are on Australia got talent at the moment and I was wondering if you have there contact details as I would love to have them come out at perform at our Spring Cycle coming up in October.

    Thanks in advance,
    Emily
