WestCycle building receives some (bike) parking relief

Over the last few months, the WestCycle building has been experiencing some parking issues. Not the parking issues we are used to hearing (car parking) but rather bike parking issues. With several peak cycling organisations sharing the building (WestCycle, Bicycling WA, BMX WA and the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation) and a few new staff members, you might expect that this was eventually going to happen.

For those who have visited the building lately may have had to navigate their way through the sea of bikes at the entrance of the building. But yesterday, with a donation from Bicycling WA and the handyman skills by Oliver from the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation, the building now has two additional steadyracks, making for a much neater entryway.

Now you might be thinking that 5 bikes may not be many, but taking into consideration that there is around 10 people who work in the building (give or take a few volunteers on various days) that's a 50% mode share!!!

But with these new racks already full, we might have to find some more wall space so we can accommodate our visitors who come to our building by bike.

This Weeks Active Transport

This story is related to Write your first story

This week I was on a mission to use my car less. As many people in our office ride or use alternative transport at least a few times a week, I thought it was time to give it a go.

Tuesday was the day. As it's too far for me to ride to work and I live near a train station I decided to catch the train. The experience as a whole was great! It was much less stressful than driving and what made it even better was that it was 20 minutes quicker! I enjoyed the experience so much I caught the train again the next day and plan to try to use active transport at least twice a week from now on.
