Push for more bike-friendly Freo

Push for more bike-friendly Freo

From today's West Australian ...

From a pile of disused bicycles and an old sea container, Simon Naber wants to introduce a "bit of Holland" to Fremantle.

The local councillor and cafe owner's vision for a city buzzing with bicycles, as in Europe, is a step closer after the "bike shelter" he helped design was given a home in the centre of Fremantle last week.

The brightly coloured shelter, built from a sea container and recycled bicycles, has drawn a few curious looks from locals since it appeared in a carpark near Paddy Troy mall.

Mr Naber hopes it will entice more motorists to swap four wheels for two.

Always stopping at two. My crowd aer feling left out!

Seriously, I ride freo when the need arises and it's a nice place to ride for recreation and for practical use. Not from a network of contemporary cycle ways, just that motorists and others are fairly accepting of them.
