And also be aware that there will be a lot of very VERY tired riders later in the day completing the Three dams and Five dams challenges along the PSP.
Arising out of the Great River Ride there will be a number of riders - largely family groups - mums, dads, kiddies etc.
Some will be will be riding from Coode Street to under the Narrows and then south to around the Como dunnies near the Pagoda and then then turning back around and heading back to the Narrows and Coode Street.
Other riders will only go as far as the South end of the Narrows and be using the area around the jet-ski car parking area for turning back to Coode Street.
The rides commences around Coode Street from 8:30. It would be smart to factor in a lot of kids and confused parents on the PSP starting at, say, 8:45.
And also factor in a lot of confusion around the Pagoda and around the car park at the south end of the Narrows.
Ride safe, ride with consideration.

Personally, unless I had a very good reason to be on the PSP in Como or South Perth on Sunday between 8 and 11, I would avoid it.

1600 or so riders get on the PSP at Armadale Road (I believe) and ride through to the South Perth foreshore, aiming to finish before 4pm.
From my experience last year, testing a new bike on the PSP, you will run into plenty of bunches of 10 to 20 riders, not all will ride in single file and some will be tired and sloppy.
Again I would try to avoid the PSP from Armadale road to South Perth, unless absolutely necessary. Seriously contemplating how to get home from my marshalling duties. I would normally take the PSP south to Kwinana
