Pedal Power ACT
Akin to the Canberra Bike Ride, there is another ride called Pedal Power ACT. But, in this movement instead of a bicycle, it is a ride of trishaw which is exclusively used to pedal aged people and those suffering from bad knee, back pain and such other ailments. Actually, a movement by the name Cycling Without Age using Trishaw has started in Denmark about four years ago and this movement has now gained popularity in Australia as well.
Now, almost every bike shop Canberra has today markets electric bicycles. Such bicycles can reach up to 80 km per hour! In fact, these electric bicycles also have pedals but they are supported by battery operated electric power motors. But, according to the norms prevailing in Australia, the electric motor should be of 250 watts capacity. Further, the maximum permissible speed of the bike should be 25 km/hour. Performance and the feasibility evaluation of these bikes are under intense scrutiny by the Government of Australia before they are formally being permitted on the roads.
Canberra Bike Polo
Some of the models of bicycles marketed by every bike shop Canberra offers are exclusively used for the popular Canberra bike polo. This is one of the popular sports being played in Canberra during mid-winter. The player should be capable of balancing the bicycle, holding the handlebar with one hand while in the other hand the player will be holding the polo stick also called as ‘mallet’. Maneuverability with one hand is the crux of this wonderful game and you can find exclusive bicycles for this event in almost every best bike shop in Canberra.
