Short notice on this one but there is an organised ride on Rottnest Island on Sunday May 6, 2012 called the The Quokka Classic Charity Bike Ride. It consists of three separate circuits: a 7 km for beginners, 39.2 km for intermediate riders and 58.8km for advanced riders – the Quokka Classic Charity Bike.
For the more experienced cyclist, this is your chance to test out the UCI World Cycling Tourâ€™s Time Trial of Rottnest.
The ride is brought to you by the Rotary Club of Perth, all proceeds from the Quokka Classic Charity Bike Ride directly benefit Passages â€“ a joint venture between the Rotary Club of Perth and St. Vincent de Paul Society to help marginalised young people in Perth make positive changes to their lives.
Do you want to know the best part? As well as the warm fuzzies youâ€™ll get from helping out a local charity, and the endorphins youâ€™ll have from the ride, your hip pocket will thank you with your return ferry to Rottnest being included in the ticket price, exclusively with Rottnest Express Ferries!
