Aim and “feel” of the site – slightly off-beat, non-sporty

Political –         Cycle Boulevard (re-brand “Community Roads”) and PSP in Bassendean, combine with possible continuation of PSP over the Swan River-         City West PSP: needs possible speed reduction and building measures

–         Above two projects will remain a major focus for the next two years.

–         Cycling access over the causeway is a problem


Bikeweek 2010Grants We are interested in organising up to three events as “Sundowners” at the Narrows bridge, the Causeway and in Northbridge, with anticipated participation of 300-400 people at each event.. Provide soft drinks, fresh fruit and juices, icy poles etc. Heinrich to approach Bikewest to explore if they would support this type of event, and if the would support three events with three different grants.The board rejected the idea of a “Sundowner” at BTA combined with the AGM, or a workshop focusing on cycle funding in Perth, or a free bike maintenance and service event.
