PHAIWA has been holding a bike rack competition asking community members from around WA to send images of innovative, unusual, or practical bike racks which they encounter on their daily travels. The competition was open to everyone in Western Australia, with metropolitan and regional categories, and prizes of $200 bike store gift vouchers for the winners of each category.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Bike Rack competition!
Congratulations to Jill Darby who has won the Metropolitan category for submitting the Leederville based ‘car’ bike rack, situated within the City of Vincent. This was chosen as the metropolitan winner as it fulfils its purpose well, clears the footpath of parked bikes, all while reminding people about the benefits that cycling provides to health, traffic congestion and parking woes.
And congratulations to our regional winner Murray Gomm of Albany, who entered his innovative and recycled ‘tractor’ bike rack, based on the property of his business, Oranje Tractor.
Thank you to everyone who entered – keep an eye out for our next competition coming soon!
