Who can participate?

Everyone and anyone! Riders of all speeds, ages, and ability are invited to meet at PICA at 10:00 on Saturday 12 December. PICA is the common name for what’s now called the Perth Cultural Centre: it’s the ampitheatre-esque space with all the steps outside the Alexandar Library at the culdesac end of James St in Northbridge; the other side of the pedestrian walkover from Perth train station. Here’s a map!

Together, we will enjoy a short cycle tour — ending in a support ride for the Walk Against Warming and calling for action on climate change. The ride will end with festivities in the park at nearby Russell Square. Along with shade and a well-earned rest, there’ll be live bands, speakers, stalls and food!

UPDATE: We fully support the Walk Against Warming! Ride for Change is a complement, not a competitor :) And so we’d like to urge everyone to sign this WAW petition.

Walk Against Warming

What to do

And on the day

  • Bring your bike bell — ring in unison!
  • Wear bright clothes (eg, yellow), your cycle group jersey, or dress up in a theme!
  • Don’t forget water, sunscreen, and your helmet.
  • Cycle at own risk, so please show courtesy and obey road rules

But please don’t be daunted if you’re worried about safety! We’ve done this before and there will be people to help you and to look after you, including some who will have the job of watching for and, if necessary, negotiating with other road users. We all ride at our own risk, but together we can watch out for each other and the collective whole.

And finally, spread the word
