BIKE stations installed at the Cannington and Riverton leisureplexes are a recent City of Canning initiative to promote sustainable travel.
Mayor Paul Ng said the two stations had been installed as a trial. One more bike station at Kent Street Weir is planned for October.
Mr Ng said each station came with tools, a foot pump and gauge to enable people to maintain their bike, fix punctures and carry out basic repairs at any time for free.
“This is a great initiative. It is really innovative and it connects people with a more active and sustainable lifestyle,” Mr Ng said.
“Riding a bike is one of the best ways to travel. It connects you to your surroundings in a way that you don’t get when you’re isolated in a car and you avoid the traffic and congestion.
“If these stations are successful, then we will look at installing more in the future.”
