A Gilgandra farmer is hoping his unique competition can raise some much needed funds for the local hospital.

A few years ago Graham Burrell first held the Modified Push Bike Competition and it will be continuing in 2020 at the 104th Gilgandra Show on May, 2.

Funds raised from registrations and donations will all go towards the Gilgandra Multi-Purpose Service.

Mr Burrell is hopeful that entries into this year's competition come from far and wide and that competitors get creative with their modified bikes.

The only entry requirement is that the modified creations must be pedal powered.

People can enter on the day, but entries will close at 10am. Entry costs just $5. There will be prizemoney for first and second.

A previous modified bike created by Mr Burrell for the competition was 4.5 metres long.

He said the event is a lot of fun and all for a great cause.

"But it also makes use of a lot of old bikes that would never have been used again," Mr Burrell said.

The Gilgandra farmer said he has even had someone from Sydney say that they are interested in entering.
