MIRRABOOKA MLA Janine Freeman says the recently-upgraded Perth Bike Network in Balga makes riding more accessible and safe for all cyclists.
Ms Freeman and City of Stirling Balga ward councillors Keith Sargent and David Boothman held a community bike ride through Princess Road and Balga Avenue on November 11.
The upgraded network, worth $159,000, was completed in June.
It provides direct connections between schools, shops, leisure and sporting facilities and nature reserves for cyclists of all skill levels.
Ms Freeman said it was a fantastic day with the community to test out the new paths.
“Going from Mirrabooka Library to Balga Leisure Centre ensured an enjoyable ride on the new paths and a great coffee at our destination,” she said.
“The paths make riding accessible and safe for all, not just sport cyclists.”
