\n “<\/span>Once in a while a truly dynamic and visionary person comes along. Pip Carroll is such a person. I can honestly say that she galvanised my admiration when I first saw her innovative approach to integrating and normalising bicycle riding as a natural and enjoyable part of everyday Melbourne life. Her energy and skill was so refreshing. When asked to Chair the newly formed Board of The Squeaky Wheel I did not hesitate.

’It has been a pleasure to see how much can be achieved with a small number of committed people. The reach of TSW programming has been enormous it leaves a legacy that will not be forgotten and hard to beat. I would like to send a huge thank you to all those who have been involved over the past years including my fellow Board members, Jette Achleitner and of course Pip Carroll.  

Thanks for the ride.”<\/span>\n <\/blockquote>\n

\n “<\/span>The whole point of The Squeaky Wheel was to create change. All of the work we did, the endless spreadsheets, site maps, test rides, timelines, permits, website updates and more - all of the invisible work that goes in to making something seem easy - was designed to achieve one thing. To change people’s minds.

Perhaps it was the change in confidence of a woman who had thought she was too old to learn anything new. Perhaps it was the change in expression on the face of the asylum seeker as he rode his new bike into his new city. Often it was just the subtle change in someone’s opinion on how and why to ride a bike.

We were never about the numbers, or the money or the market share. We set out to change your attitude about bikes. To show you how they are better able to connect us to each other, and to ourselves.

It was for these changes that we worked, and now our work is done. Change of course, is never finished. It carries on without us. As will you, on your bikes, as vehicles for change. Enjoy the ride!”<\/span>\n <\/blockquote>\n

After more than six years of squeaking and spreading the grease for Melbourne’s bike-riding community, we at the The Squeaky Wheel are pedalling off into the sunset. Our core team has dedicated tremendous energy to this ground-breaking organisation. We feel a profound sense of achievement  and we’ve had a blast!<\/p>

The Squeaky Wheel has always been characterised by change and re-birth. Company founder Pip Carroll became involved in bicycle programming in 2007, prompted by a deep belief in pedal power. “We’ve got huge problems of climate change and inactivity-induced obesity, so I see riding bikes for everyday transport as an almost heroic act,” she says. “And it’s something most of us can do – with a little support.”<\/p>

Pip produced the Melbourne leg of the Bicycle Film Festival until 2010, when it evolved into the Bikefest<\/a> community festival and then expanded to include the bicycle valet service Roll Up. In 2011 Pip’s small team of Bikefest staff and volunteers began producing events and programs as The Squeaky Wheel. “I always felt that existing advocacy organisations were missing a piece of the puzzle when it came to promoting cycling as transport,” says Pip. “One one hand, they spoke of pursuing a normalised bicycle culture, whilst simultaneously celebrating cycling as a feat of athleticism and endurance. It didn’t add up to me.”<\/p>

Pip’s goal was to re-frame bike riding as fun, easy and accessible to everyone– no lycra required, which made her a bit of an outsider in the industry.<\/p>

Since its inception, The Squeaky Wheel has produced hundreds of rides and events, growing quickly and adapting to the needs of partners and communities. One of our flagship events, ‘Pushy Women<\/a>’, began as a show at the Malthouse theatre featuring writer and comedian  Catherine Deveny as well as actor Noni Hazelhurst, feminist writer Clementine Ford, and five other women delivering witty and impassioned dialogues about bike riding.<\/p>

Since then we have staged 10 Pushy Women speaking events, featuring high profile names including Claire Bowditch, Kate Langbroek, Myf Whahurst and Helen Garner. From there other Pushy Women programs were developed including skills training, group rides and social excursions. The response was overwhelming, we’ve helped so many women take to our roads and bike paths with confidence.<\/p><\/div><\/div>
