This years Sydney Road Street Festival will be held on January 28th. The Moreland BUG organized a stall, bike parking and bike mechanical service (a big thank you to Huw and his team at Commuter Cycles!).
The only thing we need are some volunteers to help out at the stall and the bike parking. The festival starts at noon and finishes around 7.00 pm.
If you want to give a hand (as little as one hour is enough) please email me and let me know your preferred time you would like to help and also if you would like to help with the stall or the bike parking.
If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to contact me!

Please be aware that Melbourne Water will be shutting down the path for a short period. Works will occur this Wednesday 17th February, sometime between 12-2pm.
There will be a temporary sign tomorrow morning advising users of the proposed shutdown and set up the construction signage on the day as per the traffic management plan.
The closure will be staffed at both ends and detour maps are available on-site. Users detour via Parkview, Harrison and Albion.
The works being undertaken are the removal of tree(s?) adjacent to the path, between Albion and Parkview in East Brunswick. The duration of the closure is expected to be less than 1 hour.No comments
The Upfield bike path has been registered for Clean Up Australia Day, Sunday 7 March from 10 am – 12 pm!
Tammy, the Environment Education Officer at Moreland Council, is organising a clean-up along the bike path between Albion Street and Reynard Street and she’s hoping some other cyclists who regularly commute along the path may be interested in helping with the clean up. This is a public event, anyone is welcome.
The meeting point on the day is Albion Street just east of Anstey Station. Gloves, bags etc will be provided.
Details of this and other sites are on the Clean Up Australia Day website.No comments
Finally, the rides are back! After quite some time without any BUG rides we managed to get them back on track.
The first ride for this year is scheduled for February 14th and will go to the Studley Park Boathouse.
We will have two departing points:
We will depart from O’ Heas Street Bakery at 9.30 am. From there we will go to the Noise Bar in Brunswick to pick up additional riders. We would expect to leave the Noise Bar by approx 9.45 am.
The next stop is the Studley Park Boathouse for refreshments.
This is a leisurely ride and suitable for families. The distance is about 30 km return.
If you have any further questions don’t hesitate and contact the ride leader Rod Callander: email@example.com.
Don’t forget to bring water bottles, sunscreen, a puncture repair kit and some money.
