Supporting Ride to Market - Subi Farmers Market

Subiaco staff had a fun morning at the Subi Farmers Market talking cycling and celebrating Bike Week with all the local families that frequent the markets. The first 100 who rode to the markets received a $10 voucher to spend at any stall. The weather did not deter people jumping on their bikes - all 100 vouchers were gone by 10am! The early birds attending the markets also received either a bike bell or a t-shirt. The 'Your Move' maps, new cycling brochures from WestCycle and some Act Belong Commit information was also popular. The City of Subiaco's new colouring board was also a hit with kids and adults alike!

Sorry - don't know why the photo's are sideways... an even upside down ?

Wow, that is great to hear that you had a 100 riders through before 10 am. Do you think the voucher give aways encouraged those who would usually drive to bring their bikes? Or do you think you were rewarding those who usually ride for doing the ride thing and leaving their car at home?

@Kylie - we didn't ask. But from the conversations we had and based on the typical number of bikes at the markets each week I would estimate 70% new to riding to the markets (may also be new to coming to the markets in the first place).
