IT is time to dust off the lycra and ready the bicycle, because the annual Canning River Ride is back for another year.

To celebrate Bike Week 2019, the City of Canning is encouraging residents to saddle up and explore one of the most picturesque spots in the local area with a leisurely bike ride.

Starting from Kent Street Weir Park at 9am on Sunday, the circuit runs along the Canning River and allows people of all ages and fitness levels to choose from three distances tailored to their ability.

City of Canning Deputy Mayor Christine Cunningham said the free event was a great way to get some fresh air and exercise in a relaxing environment.

“Bike Week is about celebrating people of all ages and abilities riding bikes for transport, fun and healthier lifestyles,” she said.

“This non-competitive ride provides cyclists of all ages and abilities with the opportunity to get out on their bike and enjoy the beautiful cycle paths that wind along the Canning River in a friendly, supportive and fun environment.”
