We’d thought about another overnighter for this weekend, but that plan will be kept in the ‘bank’. This excursion was for some ‘bush-time’ and to use the better-weather-day.
In peak hours during the week bicycles aren’t allowed on the Transperth trains – into the city in the morning (7-9am) and out again in the evening (4.30-6.30pm). Read more here. On the weekend (especially at 8am) there’s plenty of space for us to fill the ‘bicycle’ spot with many and put the Chariot trailer in too. It takes just under an hour from Fremantle to Midland via a change in Perth.
All in all – a morning or afternoon if ridden continuously; or most of a day if enough cafés are visited and you want to chat more. Riding surface is mostly smooth, though stone chippings in places mean a bit less speed is rewarded. Start/Finish is not far from the Midland Transperth train station allowing cars to be left behind altogether.
