When you think about transportation, you’d most likely think about those fuel powered machines. We’re talking about cars, boats, buses, ferries, trains etc etc. But back in the days before coal or petrol powered transportation were invented, many relied on self propelled “machines” such as bicycles, more often then not referred simply as bikes.

Nowadays, bikes are still a minority when it comes to mode of transportation in Australian cities such as Perth. But perhaps this will change as population growth increases exponentially. Take a look at other countries, such as China where it’d be relatively common to find people getting around in their bicycles. Most will say that it is not by choice, but rather by force. Costs of running fuel powered vehicles such as cars and buses are always on the increase owing to pressure caused by increased demand for their usage.

It’s true about what they say that a picture paints a thousand words. Just take a look at the above picture. Such a telling story..

Going back to using bikes, many will argue that in a place such as Perth, the way the roads are currently designed, it may not be able to accommodate bike riders. Why? Simply because many won’t have anticipated the rapid population growth.

So, are bikes really the forgotten transportation mode? Well… everyone will have their own opinion. But the majority of local people will agree that they’re not but simply not included in today’s transport infrastructure.

Just thought I’d share my experience going to the Perth Royal show with my family in 2014. Normally I’d drive to the event, but this time we caught the train. Was it a good experience? In my opinion, yes. But many might have the opposite experience. So I do understand that. What ever the experience is, I would love for you guys to share your experience with the readers here.

I know what you’re all asking – how much did I spend in total when I went there with the whole family? Well let say it is in the vicinity of $500-$1000. Whether that is a lot or not it is up to the individual. For us, it is a little bit high. But oh well! The kids had fun so tat is the main thing. Parents will worry about the money side of things when we get home! How funny is that?

Best game for the kids, that bloody fishing game! You know the one where you get a stick with that kinda hook at the end and you pick out an unexpecting fish! My daughter loves it! But secretly I do too. So there you go, my secret is out. I might actually set it up at home and play it with everyone.

All in all, loved the experience! So since I shared my experience, please do share yours! I’ll make a deal. You share a story with all of us here and I might even post another one of my Perth experiences! I bet that got you thinking right?

Peace out!
