Bike education on the cards in Gosnells.
WHETHER bicycles are used as a mode of transport, a form of exercise or just for a bit of fun, road rules, safety and etiquette are always important to remember.
The City of Gosnells has received a boost in its bid to bring bicycle education to the community with a $30,000 Local Projects Local Jobs grant.
Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said the State Government grant would be used to hold events and workshops over the coming months.
“Encouraging community members to hop on their bikes is hugely beneficial for the City,” he said.
“Riding a bike can improve our physical and mental health; it’s a lowcost form of transport and it’s a great way to reduce our environmental footprint.
“It’s great for anyone, from children to seniors, but it’s also important to educate bike riders how to keep themselves safe on the roads and keep other road users and pedestrians safe.”
The next event on the calendar is the free Rusty Riders at Mills Park on September 8.
