Non-Stop Perth to Broome Tandem Ride
- by Christopher Jones
- Published: 9 August 2011
On August 21 a team of riders will "Bike to Broome" to oppose an industrial gas hub at James Price Point. Two teams on tandems (from a group of up to 16 riders) will be on the road non-stop, changing riders each hour with an aim to cover 480 kilometres a day and complete the trek in five days.
The event, organised by Paul Theseira, is joined by award winning photographer Christian Fletcher and is in support of the Broome community and conservation groups which are opposing the industrial gas hub at James Price Point which would be the single largest development in Australia and which they argue will have a negative impact on the area environmentally, socially and economically.
The team will pass through Geraldton, Carnarvon, Exmouth, Karratha and Port Hedland and welcome the locals to come out and support.
Further ride details and information on the cause can be found online: www.biketobroome.org
