Women on Wheels (1)

🚲The City held its first pilot Women on Wheels (WOW) program in conjunction with WestCycle which was facilitated by Cyclesense.🚲

WOW was delivered once a week over four weeks at Koondoola Park. Participants learnt new bike skills, bike maintenance and pathway etiquette and bike safety. It was inspiring to see new riders confidently riding on the City's Koondoola Avenue shared path at the end of the course as well as rusty riders taking back their confidence!πŸ’ƒπŸš² Participants swapped phone numbers to organise a bike riding group and grab a coffee.

On the final session, Mayor Linda Aitken, Deputy Mayor James Rowe and Councillor Natalie Herridge wheeled around the carpark on bikes with the participants and chatted about their newly gained bike skills. Participants were encouraged to keep riding by taking home a free maintained bike thanks to Bicycles for Humanity as well as a free brand-new helmet.

Yay for another Women on Wheels being rolled out in Perth - and great to hear that your first one went off with such success 🥳. Even better to hear that three of your elected members joined in too! You have earned 50 points for these sessions and 10 for filling us in with all the details.
