Events celebrating bike month began in Albany this week and will run through until the end of October.

The party started with Kids Gym Bike Month special at the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre on Wednesday morning and will continue on Thursday morning with a Story Scoot event at Anzac Peace Park from 10am to midday.

Suitable for children aged three and up, the event will encourage kids to read and ride, with a free coffee or milkshake on offer after the event for those in attendance.
