Introduction

Tim’ s Ride is an annual event first held in 2012 to remember Tim Anderson who was tragically killed when cycling along Curtin Ave on 8th March 2012. It also aims to bring together all parts of the cycling community to improve cycling safety with an emphasis on visibility and interaction with vehicles. Any profits or donations will go towards Tim’s Scholarship which is managed by Youth Focus and assists a young person associated with Youth Focus with their tertiary education.

General Event details

The aim is to appeal to all parts of the cycling community and all levels of cycling ability so there will be two different routes which must be specifically registered for. Please remember this is not a race but a memorial ride with time for conversation and contemplation.

As this ride is about visibility and safety all riders must wear approved helmets, wear high visibility clothing (Tim’s Ride jersey or T-Shirt preferred) and all bikes must be in good order and have working front and rear lights.

The two routes will start and finish at Harvey Field and will meet at Tim’s Memorial on Curtin Ave for a brief sunset ceremony before the finish at Harvey Field for a sausage sizzle.

Peloton Route - distance 26kms

This peloton ride is designed for experienced riders on road and hybrid bikes. Riders in this route are asked to wear high visibility clothing (Tim’s Ride Cycling Jersey preferred). Riders will be organised into groups of about 50 with nominated Captains and tail end Charlies and ride in two lines side by side. Riders are able to nominate for an existing group or suggest a new group so they can ride with their friends. Groups include Anderson Family and friends, Hawaiian Ride for Youth, Perth Integrated Health Care (PIHC), Scotch College and The Over 55s. If you wish to form a specific group or ride with friends please indicate your preference in the registration form. Expected assembly time is 4.00pm and ride start 5.15pm

Family Route - distance up to 9kms

This route is designed for riders of any level and also children. Children will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult and have parental permission to ride. This route is almost completely on cycle paths.

Riders on this route are asked to wear bright coloured tops (Tim's Ride T-Shirts or Jerseys preferred). You will ride in small groups of 4-6 with the emphasis is on fun and safety. Expected assembly time 4.30pm with a start at 5.30pm.

Support Vehicles

We are privileged to have so much support from many organisations with vehicles being supplied by Perth Integrated Health Cycling Group, Trench Health and Fitness, Budget and private individuals.

Insurance and Indemnity

All participants are reminded to read, acknowledge and adhere to the terms and conditions of Tim’s Ride. All riders are asked to adhere to the maximum speed limit of 28 kph and obey all directions of designated leaders/support crew.

Memorial Service

The Anderson Family will be hosting a brief memorial service for Tim Anderson at the site of the Ghost Bike Memorial as the sun sets. The car parks each side of the memorial will be close to all traffic and Tri Events have kindly sponsored their Bike Racks for safe and orderly storage of bikes during this service. Marshals will assist in orderly storage of the bikes and later departure for Harvey Field.

Harvey Field

With the memorial service completed the riders will make an orderly departure and head north to Harvey Field. The ‘Afters’ get together is meant to be a celebration of Tim’s life, a happy gathering of cyclists and families and will include a sausage sizzle and cool drink for riders.
