Celebrate Bike Month in Freo

Gavin Giles
City of Fremantle

Fremantle (and everyone) residents are encouraged to dust off their helmets, pump up their tyres and give cycling a go during WA Bike Month.

The City of Fremantle is celebrating Bike Month with a number of free community events for the whole family to enjoy, including a Morning Coffee Ride Community Bike Event at South Beach, Fremantle Bike Tours and support for The Big Bike Film Night.

As a bike-friendly city, Fremantle has dedicated on-road bike lanes, shared cycle paths, safe intersections for cyclists and bike parking bays throughout the city.

Celebrate WA Bike Month in Freo by heading along to one of the free community events!

Morning Coffee Ride Community Bike Event

I'm glad to see that City of Freo, a traditional supporter of cycling, is fully engaging with Bike Month - thanks for the heads up on these upcoming activities Gavin. Reading between the lines you have obtained a Westcycle Bike Month Grant, so I have linked your story to that activity, giving you 50 points, plus 20 points for not skimping on the details of your plans. Make sure you let us know after the events how they all go!
