,Ride highlights ease of cycling
Inclusive cycling tracks and games will be among the family-friendly activities available these school holidays.
The All Abilities Park Ride at the Eyre Park All Abilities Playground will start from 10am on Sunday, October 2.
City of Albany TravelSmart officer Carl Beck said the RAC-sponsored ride aimed to demonstrate the ease of commuting by cycle.
“(It’s) aimed at raising the awareness of community members about how easy it is in Albany to walk or ride to places such as parks, beaches, the library, schools and shops,” he said. “We are trying to get as many people as we can to ride to the park to show people how easy it is to get here.
“We have specifically put it on the middle weekend of the school holidays because we want people of all ages and abilities to participate.”
Riders are encouraged to arrive in bright clothing with lights on their bike and the first 50 will receive a free refreshment.
Mr Beck also said frisbee golf and storytime activities would be among the cycle-inspired games available throughout the day.
The event will also open Outdoor October in Albany.
