Where we’ll go
We start our tour on the South Perth foreshore heading towards the causeway. We have selected flat and safe bike paths all the way and not a hill to be seen. Along the way we stop to explore some hidden wetlands, learn about historical locations and observe some incredible bird life.
We continue and cross the new $US 91.5 million Matagarup bridge in front of the photogenic Optus stadium.
We break and enjoy the views with a cafe stop in Claisebrook Cove before taking time to discover a significant location for the local Noongar people of the area.
Heading back via the Bell tower and Elizabeth Quay your guide shows you some of Perth’s more modern and happening locations.
We return to South Perth foreshore via the narrows bridge.
Where we’ll meet
We meet at a cycle store in South Perth as it is warm in winter and cool in summer while we get organised. Our bikes are kept close by.
We’ll confirm the exact meeting point with you via email.
The tour is on very flat cycle paths and we stop often for photos and to enjoy the experience. You’ll be able to do this tour if you can ride a bike and are active.
There are many public toilets along the route of this tour, so just ask your guide if you need to use the “loo”.
