Up close and per­sonal ride

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LOOKLOCAL -

THE City of Ar­madale will again host one of the big­gest bi­cy­cle fun rides of the year, when the Grand Fondo tra­verses through the Ar­madale hills and plains next Sun­day.

The cy­cling tour is based on the Ital­ian Grand Fondo cy­cling style, where cy­clists and the lo­cal com­mu­nity have the op­por­tu­nity to en­gage be­fore and af­ter the ride.

Par­tic­i­pants range from recre­ational rid­ers to es­tab­lished cy­clists look­ing for a new chal­lenge.

Ar­madale Mayor Henry Zelones said the routes were de­signed to en­able cy­clists to see more of the area oth­er­wise missed when trav­el­ling by car.
