CITY of Subiaco has expanded its annual Bike Week to include a ‘Ride to Market’ as part of the ten-day celebration from March 17-26.
On Saturday, March 25, cyclists are invited to ride to the Subi Farmers Market and enjoy a morning out between 8am and midday, with the first 100 riders who bring their helmet to the City of Subiaco stall receiving a voucher to spend at the market.
Bike Week is WA’s annual celebration of people riding bikes and has been operating for more than 30 years.
Presented in partnership with the Department of Transport and WestCycle, those who live, work or visit the City of Subiaco are encouraged to take part in the festivities, avid riders or not.
The City’s main event is the Ride to Work Breakfast, held this year on Friday, March 24 from 6am-9am.
Cyclists are encouraged to ride to work and take advantage of a free breakfast at Subiaco Square, next to the train station.
Registrations for the event close this Friday, March 17, and riders must register to receive a free breakfast at www.subiaco.wa.gov.au/bikeweek and click on the ‘register online’ link.
The event will feature bike mechanics offering free maintenance, cycling clubs you can join, biking information stalls, competitions with prizes, and the opportunity to meet and mingle with other cyclists.
As further incentive to get on your bike, the City is running a Bring a Friend promotion, encouraging cyclists to bring someone who does not usually ride to the breakfast and go into the draw to win a $100 voucher to spend at selected stores in Subiaco.
There is also a Workplace Challenge where the workplace with the highest number of staff registered for the event will win a $250 lunch voucher.
