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.
