Cycling gets a favourable mention in The West …

The West Australian newspaper under new editorial leadership has published a favourable story on cycling in Western Australia.  It is nice to see the paper taking a positive stance.  The full article by Stephanie Painter, Social cyclists drive a WA bike boom, and related photo of some of the riders from the South Perth Cycle Club can be found here.

The article quotes Neil Manning, CEO of Cycling WA”

“Cycling is like the new golf in that a lot of events take part on a regular basis whereby someone wants to enter an event and gets their friends, work buddies and business associates to make up a team,” he said.

“It is very much a networking sport, not just the elite high-performance side.”

… More people are expected to compete in the Tour de Perth in November than in last year’s event.

Interesting the BTAWA does not get a mention, with the article seemingly focusing more on the sporting aspect rather than including the commuting aspect. Still a positive start to better reporting in The West.
