Glow Wheels in Gosnells!

On the 10th March 2018 City of Gosnells residents joined together to light up their bikes for a parade ride around the perimeter of Mills Park in Beckenham.

Participants were provided with maps and encouraged to ride to the start line from their homes or the train station before taking part in a number of free activities before the ride including a glow in the dark community mural, free bike engraving, glow craft, UV body marbling and a bike maintenance and information station run by Bikewise.

With the sun set it was time to get glowy! Riders lined up with their bikes to get ready to roll. A glow in the dark disco DJ helped to set the mood for the fun ride ahead. The riders completed a 2.2km ride around the park and those that wanted to go further could complete as many laps as they liked.

This event was a great way to encourage families to ride together within their local area and it was great to see lots of happy faces enjoying themselves at this community event.

This event was sponsored by Department of Transport, Bikewest and Westcycle. We would also like to say a special thank to the Gosnells Go Bug Group who provided a great amount of assistance on the night and took the lead and tail end of our ride.

Looks like a fabulous community event. Did you have many people attend? And are you thinking of making it an annual event or were you happy to run it as a one-off event?

Thank you Amy. Kylie - we usually run a Bike Breakfast each year for Bike Week so this was something a little different for us. We would love to run this again.
