Ride to Work Week celebrations

We are celebrating Ride to Work Week with the Vincent Bike Market, on Saturday 13 October from 8am to 12pm at the Barlee Street Carpark in Mount Lawley and a Community Bike Breakfast on Thursday 18 October from 7am in Oxford Street Reserve.

“Ride to Work is a great national initiative to remind people that you don’t need to rely on cars to get around. We have some great cycling infrastructure in the City and in the greater metropolitan area and we want to see more commuters picking up their bikes rather than driving to work,” said Deputy Mayor Gontaszewski.

 “I’m excited to see a range of cycling stalls coming to the Bike Market, including new, second-hand and vintage bikes as well as cycling accessories,” she said.

The Bike Market attracts over 40 stallholders selling racing bikes, choppers, regular bikes for all ages, accessories and clothing. The event also raises money for the Bikes for Humanity Charity.

“In addition to the Bike Market, we are also celebrating Ride to Work with a free breakfast on Thursday 18 October from 7am in Oxford Street Reserve. If you want to cycle in and grab a free breakfast that day, simply email us your RSVP so we can cater accordingly,” she said.
