It is time to polish off those bikes, get on two wheels and give those endorphins a boost at the Canning River Bike Ride, happening 24 October at Kent Street Weir Park in Wilson.
The Canning River Bike Ride is supported by the Department of Transport and WestCycle as part of Bike Month – a state-wide celebration of bike riding in the spring of each year.
With a 3.5km family ride, an 8km active ride and a 13.5km challenge ride, there are rides to suit all ages and abilities.
Mayor Patrick Hall hopes to see as many families as possible come along and join in the fun, with free kids’ activities and self-guided rides on offer.
“It’s also a wonderful way to meet other local bike enthusiasts, join a club, learn about cycling opportunities in Canning and have a coffee and bite to eat on us. BikeDr will also be there on the day to provide free bike servicing,” said Mayor Hall.
“If you can’t attend the event, there are plenty of other ways to celebrate Bike Month - why not organise weekend bike rides with a group of friends or dedicate a day to cycle with your kids to school. It’s a great way to inspire the next generation of cyclists and promote a healthier way of life among young and old.”
The Canning River Bike Ride is on Saturday 24 October from 9am-11am, with all rides leaving 9.30am from Kent Street Weir Park in Wilson.
People thinking of attending are asked to consider riding to the event or commuting via other sustainable transport options to not only reduce car traffic and pollution, but also boost their health and wellbeing.
RSVP to the event is essential via Eventbrite by Wednesday 21 October. To register your attendance and for more information click here
