The EMRC’s last day of bike week turned in to an absolutely beautiful morning. We had a walkers group going and we also had our last riding group for the week. The EMRC riding group had a destination in mind and this destination was the City of Belmont’s Bike Week Breakfast. Supporting our local member Councils is important to the EMRC and it was a very well organised event by the City of Belmont.

The EMRC staff rode from work down to the Swan River, along Hardey Park in Belmont and followed the river bend around to Balburk Reserve. Riding in to Balburk reserve there was a bike valet, coffee van, breakfast being served, people stretching, socialising and moving about. The Bike DR’s were busy with many bikes been serviced and passed through their hands, including ours which was a fantastic added service. It was a great occasion to see a really good example of a successful bike event which was supplied for the public. We all had a great morning at the Bike Breakfast event before riding back along the Swan River as a group.

In the afternoon our Bike Quiz winners were announced, which was conducted by Survey Money. There were 3 days allocated for the bike quiz, which staff could complete at their leisure. We had some very skilled bike knowledge which ended with prizes for first, second and third; all prizes were arranged from the Your Move rewards shop! People were surprised at their knowledge and feedback was positive surrounding the quiz, people appreciated being involved even if they may not be able to ride a bike to work.

Overall the EMRC had a very successful, fun filled, positive bike week events and experiences. There was something for everyone and it encouraged people to think, do and plan active travel movements! We look forward to our next bike event!

Woot Woot you have gone up a level to Silver! I'm sad your Bike Week festivities have come to a close, I've really enjoyed reading what you have been up to. Now if only we had a Public Transport Week in May. I hope the EMRC's Bike Week festivities inspired some staff to reassess how they got to work.
