Riding through Bassendean, we’ll stop for breakfast at Garvey park kiosk before continuing back to Guildford.

We aim to start cycling at 8am, so please arrive at the Guildford Primary School at 7.55am.

This bike ride will take approximately 50 minutes to 1 hour to complete at a leisurely pace (Note: This does not include stopping for breakfast).

Where: Meet at Guildford Primary

When: By 8 am on Sunday 10th April

What: Please bring some money for breakfast, a helmet, your bike and water bottle.

Everyone is welcome to attend (children must be accompanied by adults) but places are limited due to not wanting to swamp the kiosk.

Guildford Outdoors Group: Breakfast Paddle

IMG_7721

Sixteen people turned out for the first Guildford Outdoors activity. We canoed from Fishmarket Reserve to Ascot Kayak Club, where we all enjoyed a delicious breakfast from the Garvey Park Kiosk. Then we paddled home, with some wind against us, just to make sure we had a good workout!

It was great to see some new faces as well as the old, and it’s always good to enjoy  the river early in the morning. It was too bad we were once again reminded of the impact of fishing line when we came across a duck with line and hook caught around its beak. Sadly, we were unable to catch the duck to help it.

Over breakfast we were rewarded with a sighting of one of the many river dolphins, making its way further upstream
