The City of Fremantle is celebrating all things cycling with free community events during Bike Week.
Held from 15 – 24 March, Bike Week is Western Australia’s annual celebration of people riding bikes for transport, fun and healthier lifestyles.
City of Fremantle Recreation Community Development Officer Erinn Litchfield said the City’s Bike Week events were a great opportunity for people to reacquaint themselves with their bike, brush up on their cycling skills or even try riding for the first time.
“Whether you’re new to cycling and need to build up your confidence or a regular cyclist, I encourage you to get involved with Bike Week and meet fellow riders in a friendly, supportive and fun environment,” Ms Litchfield said.
“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.
“Fremantle’s city centre is also a great place to cycle around with the Cappuccino Strip, West End precinct, Fishing Boat Harbour, Swan River and local beaches all easily accessible by bike.”
Registrations are open for the City’s 2019 Bike Week events.
