The Great Bike Hike

The Great Bike Hike is a celebration of people and places involved in creating welcoming and affirming communities for people with a disability, mental illness, their families and carers.  A team of up to 12 riders, including several paralympians, will be cycling nearly 2,500 kilometres from Perth to Broome in August and September 2012. The focus of the ride is to celebrate the many diverse projects and activities enriching the lives of everyone within their community.

They will be travelling through 26 towns on their way to Broome. Organisers of the Great Bike Hike are looking for local people, organisations and projects in communities between Perth and Broome to be part of this awareness-raising event. They will be arriving in Dongara Friday 24 August 2012. If you would like to nominate a project or sponsor this worthy cause go to the Great Bike Hike website:
