The Teddy Bear’s Picnic Ride is on this Saturday (March 19).
Meeting point: 11:30am at CERES Café (Lee Street, Brunswick East). The ride departs CERES at 12 noon.
Description: Bring a bike, picnic goodies, good weather and a teddy bear mascot. We will ride 5 km at a meandering pace from CERES to Coburg Lake via the Merri Creek Trail and enjoy a picnic by the lake.
In case you haven’t already noticed, there are works happening along the Upfield Bike path at the corner of Park Street and the Upfield path on the north side along the shared path. Works commenced at some point yesterday and is still in progress.
Please take care when travelling through this area as there is only enough space for one cyclist or pedestrian to pass at a time.No comments
