Sounds like absolute porn with so many different types of cycling represented.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely be trying to make it there.

Looking forward to Friday.

Hi Chris
Thanks heaps for the welcome.I get down to Melbourne a bit (not enough really) Last time i was down i took a heap of photos of various cycles and their owners and did a spread in Bicycle Network.Your town was made for cycling!! We will be coming down in two months (Jail for our puss again !!) to tour as many bike shops/cycling cafes to promote and post up posters for the Canberra Vintage/Classic ride. The human powered Cafe looks like a good start. Possible to catch up for a chat when down ?? I can also post down some posters to you if interested?
