Don’t forget’s Department of Transport’s ‘Cycle Instead in Spring’ which starts in less than two weeks.
About the Cycle Instead in Spring program
The start of spring brings the opportunity to dust off your bicycle, put on a helmet and get outdoors.
Cycle Instead in Spring is an annual campaign that encourages Western Australians to be more active by:
- Riding to work, local shops and cafes
- Enjoying an inspiring and scenic bicycle route.
- The key program is the Cycle Instead Bike to Work Challenge 2012 to be held over six weeks, from 10 September to 21 October. This friendly, workplace competition will culminate with the National Ride2Work Day on 17 October.
Visit the Bike to Work Challenge web page for more information about this popular event.
