HUN­DREDS of cy­clists took part in Bike in the Val­ley on Sun­day to cel­e­brate its 21st an­niver­sary in the Swan Val­ley.

About 370 rid­ers took part in the event, which had a 9km, 23km and 34km ride, with rid­ers of all ages tak­ing part.

City of Swan Mayor Mick Wain­wright was at the event op­er­at­ing the sausage siz­zle, while Cr Rod Hen­der­son took part in the ride. Cr Wain­wright said it was great to see so many peo­ple take part in Bike in the Val­ley.

“It was great to be part of Bike in the Val­ley again this year, par­tic­u­larly as it marked the event’s 21st birth­day. It was a great day and I was pleased to see such a good turnout,” he said.

“We had par­tic­i­pants of all ages from lit­tle ones on bike seats and bike trail­ers to 80 years and over.”

Cr Wain­wright said he was im­pressed by one of the small­est par­tic­i­pants.

“One of our lit­tlest par­tic­i­pants was a five-yearold who’d just started rid­ing with­out his train­ing wheels, and he rode nine kilo­me­tres – such a great ef­fort,” he said.

“I would like to thank all of those who took part, the event mar­shals and ev­ery­one who helped to hold and run the event. It was en­joyed by all.”

Hun­dreds of peo­ple turned out for Bike in the Val­ley’s 21st an­niver­sary.
