This Sunday 25 March come along to Maribyrnong’s Family Bike Day and hear all about the council’s current cycling projects. It’s also an opportunity to share your ideas for the future of cycling in the City of Maribyrnong.
The event will be held in Pipemakers Park along the Maribyrnong River bicycle track. The park can be accessed from Van Ness Ave in Maribyrnong and the event will be set up between the Living Museum of the West and the Bike Repair Station.
The day will include Bike ‘n’ Blend’s smoothie bikes where you can spin your own smoothie, music generated by a ‘sound bike’, a bike course for kids, free sausage sizzle, coffee and more. Representatives from the Westgate Tunnel project will also be on site with a virtual reality Velloway Bike for attendees to use, giving them a sense of what it will be like to travel along the proposed West Gate Tunnel veloway.
There will also be a number of guest speakers throughout the day talking all things cycling, including:
