Dirk Hartog Anniversary Community Bike Ride
Sun. 16 October 2016, 9:30 am – 11:30 am AWST
Join the University of Amsterdam's "bicycle professor" Marco Brommelstroet on a family bike ride from Swanbourne to Victoria Quay on Sunday morning before the official Dirk Hartog Day festivities begin. Marco is known as the bicycle professor and has a big following on Twitter https://twitter.com/fietsprofessor.
The ride will start at 10am sharp. The starting point is the carpark near the Shorehouse café, 278 Marine Parade, Swanbourne WA 6010. Please be there by 9.45am.
If you don’t want to ride there, or go by car,, you can take your bike on the train to Swanbourne or Grant Street station. The ride will mainly follow bike paths, but there will be some roads to cross, so children under 16 will need to be accompanied by at least one adult. There will be secure parking for your bike in B Shed on Victoria Quay so you can spend the afternoon enjoying the activities. Bike helmets are compulsory for all taking part, and please wear something orange!
Route for the bike ride is available on the Bicycling Western Australia website: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1304715751
