Luminocity a chance to see the city at night on a bike

CYCLING enthusiasts will have a chance this month to see the city from their bikes at night.

Bicycling Western Australia (BWA) is lighting up Perth with the Luminocity night ride, which is open to people of all ages and biking experience.

The 39km course winds its way through Perth’s streets taking in the colours and lights of Perth, the Swan River and other locations including UWA, Council House, Parliament House and Claisebrook Cove.

BWA chief executive Debra Graham said the fundraiser event was held in support of Cycling Without Age to help the elderly benefit from cycling.

“This bicycle ride is for everyone – from the ride-to-work commuter, occasional rider, the more serious cyclist or anyone who wants to jump on a bike,” she said.

She encouraged participants to “ride bright, light up their bikes and dress-up”.

The cruise will stop as two rest and entertainment zones.

Bikes will be available to hire.

Tickets from $69.
