There’s certainly no doubt about it – Western Australia has some nice places to ride, for both casual and serious cyclists. What it lacks in hills though, it makes up for in gusty wind – which is good when it is behind you, not so good if it’s in your face.
The South Perth foreshore now has a dedicated cycling path so that the pedestrians and cyclists don’t have to share. It makes it easier to cruise along and enjoy the view, one still has to be aware of the unleashed doggies and meandering pedestrians who do not read signs.
Of course, aside from puttering around the river, I use my bike for errands and transport. Unfortunately, bike racks are not always available at the destination. As long as there is some kind of pole though, parking is possible. Bikes really do not take up much room.
