Around 500 regular and new bicycle riders attended the Bike to Work Breakfast at Subiaco Square near the Subiaco train station. Riders who pre-registered collected their free breakfast from one of the participating cafes (Louis Baxters, Croissant Express, or Café Café), and those that that registered early collected their free ‘I bike Subiaco’ t-shirt.
The event had a number of information stalls this year to provide participants with a range of cycling and healthy living information including four stalls from the City of Subiaco; sustainable travel, Act Belong Commit (mental health), a pop up library, and Lords gym. Other stall holders included the MRA with information on the Subi East project, WA Police (Ewatch and Neighbourhood Watch programs, and preventing bike theft), Healthier Workplace WA (including Live Lighter), and local business’s KX Pilates and Bikemore. This event was also the first day out for our new colouring board (pictured in the background below).
The event went really smoothly and even the weather played nicely. You can never over plan, however we did hit one little unforeseen hitch - a bike left attached to our temporary bike parking. Once the bike parking was dismantled and removed the owner of the bike could not be located so unfortunately (or fortunately) the bike was conveyed to the local police station for safe keeping. We'll certainly be putting clear signage on our bike parking next year.
