Be part of Perth's biggest-ever free, mass bike ride - for the environment, for health and for fun at 10am Saturday 12th December, 2009.
The first-ever 'Ride for Change' has been organised by a group of Perth cyclists to bring the diverse Perth cycling community together for a fun, festive community bike ride! Riders of all speeds, ages & ability are invited to meet at PICA (Perth Cultural Centre, James St, Northbridge) at 10am on Saturday 12 December.
Together, we will enjoy a short cycle tour - ending in a support ride for "Walk Against Warming" and action on climate change. The ride will end with festivities in the park at nearby Russell Square. Along with shade and a well-earned rest, there'll be live bands, speakers, stalls and food!
