Tour de Perth Coordination Committee- Get Involved

The Tour de Perth is the premier road cycling event in WA and has great potential to showcase the Perth region and to develop into a prestigious event taking advantage of the enormous growth in the popularity of the sport of cycling in WA. Following this year’s event Cycling WA invited event participants to a feedback session to discuss the positives and how the event could be improved in future years.

Approximately 10 event participants, including Ken Lloyd (event organiser), Dean Emslie (Board member), Henk Vogels (Life member) and Chris Thompson (Cycling WA CEO) attended. The session discussed the vision for the TdP, and the positives and opportunities for improvement. Overall it was a positive and useful session, with agreement of the need to Cycling WA to better oversee the event.

Following the session, the board of Cycling WA endorsed a proposal to appoint a TdP Coordination Committee. The TdP Coordination Committee will have its first meeting at 6pm on Tuesday, 10 June 2008 at the Department of Sport and Recreation (246 Vincent Street, Leederville).

Cycling WA is seeking expressions of interest from interested persons to join the TdP Coordination Committee. This is an opportunity to be involved in the future of the event.

To assist with catering, interested persons are asked to contact Cycling WA by no later than 6 June 2008.
