The Squeaky Wheel are back on the streets of Melbourne over the winter with the third part of the City of Melbourne's annual Share Our Streets campaign.

In 2014, The City of Melbourne first commissioned The Squeaky Wheel and behaviour change experts STUDIO HUSS to develop and deliver their new road safety campaign Share Our Streets, during which pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and motorcycle riders are asked to all play their part in making  everyone's journey around the city safer and more enjoyable. Share Our Streets has subsequently been run in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

This third part of the campaign for 2016 focuses on car dooring, which remains a significant safety issue for cyclists moving around the city. Our staff will be engaging taxi-drivers, drivers of delivery vans, motorists and their passengers at sites on St Kilda Road and in Collins St. We'll be making sure they know what car-dooring is, how it affects cyclists, what the penalties are and getting them to take part in a Council survey.

We'll also be staging activations to remind drivers and passengers travelling in cars of their responsibility to check for passing cyclists before opening car doors and share tips on how to avoid causing injury to people on bikes, for example by opening car doors with the opposite hand. 

The Share Our Streets Car Dooring activations will be taking place on the following dates:

Monday June 20th   11am-1pm Collins Street east of Swanston Street

Thursday June 23rd  11am-1pm Collins Street west of Swanston Street

Friday June 24th       11am-1pm Elizabeth Street between Londsdale Street and Collins Street, Bourke Street

Monday July 4th       11am-1pm Collins Street east of Swanston Street

Tuesday July 5th      11am-1pm Collins Street west of Swanston Street

Thursday July 7th     11am-1pm St Kilda Road between Arts Centre and Federartion Square

That's great news for the 12 councils who have partnered in the project and of course for YOU the bike rider. At the conclusion of the project, the data will be compared to Vic Roads crash stat data , showing very clearly where there exits discrepancies between real and perceived risk. We hope that eventually, this data will help our council partners and all stakeholders create a more inviting and safe-feeling road environment.

See below the info on the project, and it's not too later to mark your spots!

Launched at the 2016 Sustainable Living Festival with a Forum examining perceptions of safety and their impact on riders in Melbourne, BikeSpot is a unique bike safety project. Enabled by a TAC Community Road Safety Grant, BikeSpot sees The Squeaky Wheel teaming up with CrowdSpot and has attracted the support of over ten local government areas in Melbourne. 

Feeling safe on a bike is something that matters a lot to us at The Squeaky Wheel. We spend so much of our time training people from all walks of life to safely get around Melbourne by bike and we firmly believe that everyone should be able to confidently use their bike to access their local community and everything it offers.

BikeSpot will run for three months, collecting rider's and would-be-rider's feedback on how they feel while riding, after which our partnering councils will receive reports on the data collected in their area and comparisons between this data on rider's perception of safety and actual crash data statistics for the same areas. 

Local government areas supporting BikeSpot include; City of Port Phillip, City of Yarra, City of Moreland, Maribyrnong City Council, City of Melbourne, City of Moonee Valley, City of Boroondarra, Frankston City, Brimbank City Council, City of Stonnington, Wyndham City and Bayside City Council. 

If you missed your forum you can hear some highlights from the discussion on a podcast by the Yarra Bicycle Users Group. 

 You can check out the BikeSpot website here, make sure you add your own spot, and also find us on Facebook.

Summer is upon us and that can mean only one thing, its festival season! And festival season is a busy time for our valet bicycle parking service Roll Up. 

Established in 2011 with funding from the VicHealth MOTION program, Roll Up is a fully outsourced, customisable, rider-oriented bicycle parking service. Requiring no permanent infrastructure, Roll Up fits on the street, on footpaths, in ovals or just about anywhere. We provide infrastructure and staffing to accommodate up to 200 bikes.

Able to be located in close proximity to or within festivals and events, bicycle valet is a proven factor in encouraging active and sustainable transport. Run by bike riders for bike riders, Roll Up adds green value to any event, enhances the rider experience, rewards sustainable transport choices and promotes health through physical activity and community engagement. 

Our Roll Up calendar for 2016 is off to a great start. We'll be kicking off the year at the Australia Day Festival in the City of Greater Dandenong where locals from over 150 different countries will come together to celebrate everything they have in common.

St Valentine's Day sees us in St Kilda for the annual St Kilda Festival for the fourth year running. In fact you'll be seeing double as this Festival is so big and the Roll Up service so popular we'll be in two locations, so there's no excuse not to ride your bike if you're heading to this popular day out!

Meanwhile, Sunday March 20th will see Roll Up at the Darebin Community and Kite Festival at Reservoir's picturesque Edwardes Lake Park from 11-6. 

Come and say hello as you check your bike in at Roll Up at any of these summer events!

A couple of months ago we started work on a campaign along the St Georges Road shared path to get pedestrians and riders talking to each other about how they share the space. Shared spaces can be tricky and none more so than paths shared by pedestrians and bike riders who are in a hurry to be somewhere!

Working with behaviour change experts Studio Huss and the City of Darebin, we've run several sessions late on Wednesday afternoons and one on a weekend. We used the promise of free ice cream from The Rolling Scoops to entice both riders and pedestrians to stop and have a chat to each other about the way in which they share path space.  

You can take a look at the ideas both riders and pedestrians put forward on the City of Darebin Facebook page. These suggestions will be used to develop a shared path etiquette and Darebin are asking you to vote here on the ideas put forward.

We're very proud of our Good Wheel program. That's the program we run with our partners Good Cycles and organisations such as the City of Melbourne, AMES, the ASRC, Victoria Police and The Huddle. You can read a little more about it here and here

Good Wheel has been attracting some attention lately. Azil, one of our graduates from our Spokeswomen program (a version of Good Wheel targeted at female asylum seekers) was recently interviewed by Michael Mackenzie on RN Afternoons. Azil is a great example of how providing a bicycle and the knowledge and confidence to use it can make a real difference to someone's life and the place they are able to make for themselves in the community. You can listen to the interview here. 

The Spokeswomen program is also featured in issue 17 of Treadlie Magazine. This issue will be available from October 12th in newsagents around Australia.

Shared spaces can be tricky and none more so than paths shared by pedestrians and bike riders who are in a hurry to be somewhere! The City of Darebin have commissioned The Squeaky Wheel and behaviour change experts Studio Huss to develop and deliver a campaign to establish an etiquette for using shared paths in Darebin.

We will be hosting a series of interventions on the St Georges Road shared path during  November where bike riders and pedestrians will be invited to have a conversation, with each other, around how they share the path space and negotiating behaviour on the path.  The outcomes of these interactions will be shared with the wider community to crowdsource a new etiquette for shared paths across Darebin, which will then be shared both along the path itself and via other channels. 

So how do you get cyclists and pedestrians, often in a hurry to get to where they're going, to stop and have a chat about the way in which they share path space? We think ice cream might do the trick! We'll have The Rolling Scoops on hand with four delicious flavours of their natural artisan gelato from which to choose, as a special treat for those who stop and have a chat and engage with other path users and our staff.

With four sessions, during peak hour on selected Wednesday evenings and one Saturday afternoon session, we're planning on getting as many riders and pedestrians talking to each other about negotiating path space as possible. In addition to ice cream there will be Travel Smart maps, bells and other goodies to help make everyone's trip easier - and safer!  

Our first session is Saturday 7th November 1-4pm on the St Georges Road shared path, just near Northcote High School. This will be followed by three Wednesday afternoon sessions on November 11, 18 and 25 between 5-6:30pm, in the same location.

Pop down and say hello, engage with other path users and tell us what you can do to make the St Georges Rd shared path work better for everyone.
