Wanted to create a group for all us West Australian Riders out there...to discuss everything from best bike tracks/routes around Perth to the best places to go for the coffee recovery...
It winds it way into suburbs, across pededstrian bridges and through the bush where tree roots are pushing up the pathway.
Three years ago I did the 60km HBF Freeway bike ride and there was a discussion on the radio afterwards where they said that they were looking at creating a "bike Highway" from Joondalup to the city which will cut 15 minutes of a cyclist time to get into the city.
Well as we can all see, nothing has happened.
i was amazed by the new freeway extension south when i was back a few months ago ... heaps more trails south and north now
This happens too often, it has happened also to my partner, although she sustained a bruised hip and fractured jaw in two places. Still trying to get some money out of the idiot who hit her. It sucks how when you're the victim you have to run around and do everything to get justice.
thats nuts. Ive copped a t-boning, had a car back out in front of me while on the aero bars ... crunched me and the bike, and a good over the bonnet without a scratch ... hallelujah for helmets. But, with all the miles Ive clocked up, these incidents ALL happened in Perth. Is that a common theme with the drivers???
I hear ya. I live up joondalup way and ride past the city for work. Not the best paths/cycle ways along the freeway.
