Chance to cycle for charity in Perth

March 15, 2014 by  

There is still time for keen riders to sign up for the Perth Freeway Bike Hike to help support the Asthma Foundation.

The cycling event is the Asthma Foundation of Western Australia’s largest fundraising effort and this year is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

There are three courses in 2014 that all include the chance to ride the city’s Freeways without the usual traffic, and finish at Langley Park in East Perth.

An 80km course is aimed at regular riders who wish to challenge themselves, while the 30km course is suitable for more casual participants. A shorter course has also been designed for children and families

After the race, riders can enjoy a breakfast in Langley Park, either by taking a picnic or by purchasing a breakfast package from the organisers. The finish line festival will also include live music and children’s entertainment.

Cyclists are encouraged to raise money individually or as a team, and entrants who raise a certain amount can ride the course for free rather than paying the entry fee.

Flyer printing is a good way to let people know about a fundraising campaign, especially around a workplace, while supporters might like to think about banner printing to give riders some extra encouragement around the course.

The Bike Hike takes place on Sunday 23rd March. For more information or to register, visit the event’s website.
