Bike Week Bo­nanza on its Bike­ley again

Mandurah Coastal Times - - STREET WATCH -

THE South Metropoli­tan Health Pro­mo­tion Ser­vice (SMHS) has been awarded the 2017 WA Bike Week Bike­ley Col­lab­o­ra­tion Award for its co­or­di­na­tion of the Peel Re­gion Cy­cle In­stead Bike Week Bo­nanza.

The hon­our was awarded by the Depart­ment of Trans­port and WestCy­cle to the Bike Week event that best worked with com­mu­nity groups and other or­gan­i­sa­tions to share and com­mu­ni­cate the ‘cy­cling for trans­port’ mes­sage.

This is the sec­ond time the Bike Week pro­gram in the Peel re­gion has re­ceived a Bike­ley award.

An­nounc­ing the award, the WestCy­cle Bike Week team said the achieve­ment was a tes­ta­ment to the hard work of SMHS health pro­mo­tion offi- cer Robyn Lis­ter.

This year’s Peel Re­gion Bike Week com­prised a 17-day pro­gram with 15 dif­fer­ent events hosted by a range of lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, bike clubs and busi­ness own­ers.

Un­der­pin­ning the suc­cess of the Peel Bike Week pro­gram was its col­lab­o­ra­tive ap­proach in­volv­ing many agen­cies, clubs and groups.

Fi­nan­cial sup­port from part­ner or­gan­i­sa­tions has helped en­sure a di­verse range of events each year.
