Brompton Bling

Filed under: commuting — madbadleroybrown @ 9:08 pm

After taking a Brompton out for a spin on Ride to Work day, I can’t seem to get that bike out of my mind. There was something cheeky about the bike that made me feel like a teenager again (well we can all dream!). Then to make matters worse i found this flickr group. It looks like they are having fun over in Europe, customizing their bikes with the same passion and detail as the fixie scene.

Last night’s BikeSydney meeting

Filed under: advocacy, commuting, Events — schmadzie @ 12:05 pm

Well I went to my first BikeSydney meeting in a long while last night. BikeSydney is the local advocacy group for the City Of Sydney Council area, a small group of hard workers getting things done. Andrew, Elaena, Lester and Cole ran thru a bunch of things which BikeSydney is involved in. I’ll just run thru them briefly. If you want more info, and especially if you want to get involved, check out the Bike Sydney website

Jones st Ultimo near the school, there is a proposal for a pinch point for the kids to cross the road easier

Huntley St Alexandria, lights are going in to allow further progress along the Alexandria canal route, tempoarily using a back lane behind some of the woolsheds.

A proposal to drop the speedlimit on Wilson St from 50 to 40

The Bike Lanes on Park st (the only ones in the cbd) have been removed for the pope visit. Apparently assurances have been given that they will be replaced after the event. But when?

A couple of grant applications have been submitted, one for cultural themed bike maps around town, and another for Bike Film Festival funding.

Tshirts are getting made

There is a proposal for the greenway linking cooks river to lilyfiel, to become a tramway. Will there be enough room for bikes and pedestrians?

Bike Valet parking is been offered as a commmercial venture to venues and event managers

Sydney Olympic park is keen for events for their Cycling festival in October., like films and art, maybe a tie in with the BFF

There will be a cool BFF promo event at the Mori Gallery in day st mid july, showing detoour de tour and triplets of bellville. BYO wine, baguettes and blankies. July 16

BFF happenings will include a parade, art installations and art thmed bike rides, a party and a picnic, and parking on the street in front of the dendy newtown

Contested Streets film – ideas tossed around to have a screening of this film in order to inspire decisionmakers, like Councillors, candidates

What questions do we want to put to ou propective councillors before their september elections

I need to get more involved, especially in the organisation of the picnic
