Cycling in Melbourne Australia
Bikefest is produced by The Squeaky Wheel, a grass roots producing and advocacy initiative devoted to taking the sport out of transport.
Our vision is for bike riding to be a mainstream transport choice in Australian culture, and our mission is to promote bike riding as inclusive and delightful through cultural engagement.
We present an annual festival (Bikefest), a bicycle valet parking service (Roll Up Bicycle Valet) and activities throughout the year in partnership with cultural, industry and community organisations.
2012 Melbourne Bikefest represents a new direction for us, with 9 key projects staged in partnership with other major events, organisations and communities of bike riders.
Our program encompasses fashion, food, film, performance, shopping, talks, rides, art, design and advocacy projects in a month-long celebration of life on two wheels.
Our goal is to normalise bike riding within mainstream cultural life. The vast majority of Bikefest events are FREE for you to attend.
Join us for the ride!
Do you know anyone who may be interested in being a Melbourne Bikefest Volunteer?
Melbourne Bikefest are a couple of volunteers short so if you can think of anyone who may be interested pass this on and get them to email Jette Achleitner (firstname.lastname@example.org) with "Bikefest Buddy" in the subject line. There's buckets of fun, a t-shirt and an invite to the closing night party in it for them!
