A program called Spokes in the Wheel, which operates out of Engineers Without Borders, is running a bike program for kids from Sudan living in Melbourne.
The program includes fixing up second hand bikes for the kids, and running learn to ride sessions. Spokes in the Wheel is looking for people who want to be involved in the program, either as bike fixers or learn to ride trainers; people are needed for the upcoming EWB conference on Friday 27th Nov, as well as in an ongoing capacity on Saturdays (bike ed in Dandenong and Braebrook) and Sundays (bike fixing at CERES Bikeshed).

News from Kylie Huard, the Strategic Transport Planner at Moreland City Council:
Just wanted to let you know that we’ve been successful in our application for a $160,000 grant for the East Brunswick shimmy. This brings our bicycle budget to over $1 million this year! The route links Canning Street to Barrow Street via East Brunswick, and consists of a variety of treatments including refuges across Brunswick Road and Glenlyon Street, contraflow lanes, path widening and surface improvements and wayfinding. I just wanted to thank the BUG for their support with our submission.No comments
