GRAB your high-vis gear and deck out your bike in fluorescent colours, because the Glow Wheels Parade is just around the corner.

As part of Bike Week 2018 and the City of Gosnells’ Homegrown Festival, Mills Park will be illuminated for a spectacular night-time bike ride on March 10.

Participants can ride unlimited laps around Mills Park’s pathways, while the night will also feature free bike engraving and bike education and an outdoor glow disco and glow craft workshops for children.

Gosnells mayor Glenn Dewhurst said he was looking forward to the colourful event and urged people to enjoy the festivities and get some exercise at the same time.

“The Glow Wheels Parade gives people of all ages and abilities a chance to have fun with cycling – there are prizes for the best bike decorations and outfits, giveaways and ‘light up’ fun for the whole family,” he said.

“Kids, in particular, can really benefit from this event, as it involves a leisurely ride in a safe, fun environment and helps children establish a life-long love of bike riding.

“As a community, we can do more to choose cycling for fitness, fun or transport, ideally for those short trips to the shops or school.”

The parade is a free event, however registrations are essential by calling 9397 3000.
