Winter Solstice Ride

Celebrate that fact that the days are only going to start getting longer from now on - TUESDAY 21 JUNE - Inaugural Annual Winter Solstice Ride and Breakfast.
- Meet outside the Mansfield Hotel at 6am for a ride around the Barwite Loop;
- Breakfast from 6:45am at Mansfield Coffee Merchant (partners and kids very welcome to come down for the breakfast); and
- If it’s cold we ride; if it’s wet... just turn up for breakfast!
Even if you can’t bring yourself to ride that early in the morning, come and join us for breakfast.

Cycling and the 2016 election

Australia's national, state and territory bicycle organisations have called for the next Australian government to invest $10 per person nationally to provide the infrastructure needed to create a better environment for everyday cycling in this country. Together we have released a simple position statement that clearly sets out the challenges and benefits addressed by this investment. Read more about it and download the position statement/info graphic here.
You can also find a good explanation on the Bicycle NSW website but it doesn't seem to be on the Bicycle Victoria site...
