The City of Whitehorse has organised test rides for its new network of local routes through the municipality.
Riders are invited to try out the routes on a ride on 6 May at 2:00pm, starting at Aqualink Box Hill, Surrey Park, Box Hill.
To help planning for the event, register here.
The route is described as a low stress ride, but participants should feel confident riding on local streets and with others.
A short safety briefing will occur at the start of the ride.
Whitehorse City Council has launched a network of low-stress local street and off-road cycle paths to help make cycling to work or the shops safe and comfortable.
It describes them as “a network of low-stress local streets and off-road cycle paths to help make cycling to work or the shops safe and comfortable."
This is a good opportunity to explore these routes and to provide feedback on how they might be improved.
