City geared up for Bike Week

10/03/2017

The City of Rockingham is inviting the community to join in its 2017 Rockingham Community Breakfast Ride on Sunday 19 March to celebrate Bike Week.

The family-friendly event begins at 8.30am and will include two cycle distances – a 5km smooth and easy ride and a challenging 11km ride – along the stunning Rockingham coastline, starting at Long Point, Port Kennedy.
 
The ride will be followed by a free breakfast, free bike maintenance checks and children's activities including a bouncy castle, face painting, giant games, prizes and giveaways.
 
Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged families to dust off their bikes and rediscover the joy of cycling which is a great way to keep fit and active.
 
“We are very lucky in Rockingham to have many shared paths throughout the City, and along our beautiful coastline,” Mayor Sammels said. “We have recently started work on the final stage of the principal shared pedestrian and cyclist path linking Baldivis town centre with Warnbro train station.  This will complete the 4.2km path the City has been building over the past two years which will enable cyclists to ride all the way from the Baldivis town centre to Warnbro train station, and connect with existing bike paths to the Rockingham city centre and the coast.”
 
Registrations are free for the 2017 Rockingham Community Breakfast Ride and can be made online. The 2017 Rockingham Community Breakfast Ride is part of the City’s Summer Series of events.
