BIKE RIDE TURNS 21
CYCLISTS in the Swan Valley will celebrate a milestone anniversary for Bike in the Valley this Sunday.
The annual event will celebrate its 21st anniversary with cyclists from all over Perth taking part in a 9km, 23km and 34km ride.
The event is free and caters to all fitness levels, with a “sag wagon” support vehicle to help anyone who needs assistance.
City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said more than 400 riders attended last year’s event.
“It is a fun family event that traditionally attracts riders from all ages, from toddlers on bike seats to cyclists who are almost 90 years old,” he said.
“Autumn is also a great time to visit the Swan Valley on two wheels, with the ideal weather, greenery and paddocks of animals to admire during the ride.”
The circular ride starts and finishes at West Swan Oval, where there will also be a Bike Doctor Clinic, coffee van and sausage sizzle available.
The three routes will be marked and key corners will be manned by marshals to ensure riders stay on track.
Registrations open at 9am at West Swan oval, with the ride starting at 10am.
