The Bikespot project is not yet 3 months in, and we have over 2000 spots entered on the map. We've also got over 2,800 'supports' and more than 1,700 comments - which brings us to a whopping 6,500 + submissions.  Woweeee!! 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.

The Good Wheel Project is a collaboration between The Squeaky Wheel and not for profit social enterprise Good Cycles. The pilot program was staged in February 2014 and was initiated by the City of Melbourne.

We've delivered several iterations of the program since then, each targeting different intake groups and we're very happy to announce that we will be running two more series of the program through October and November in 2015, thanks to a Community Road Safety Grant from the Transport Accident Commission

This series will target members of the community from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, recent migrants and refugees, for whom a bicycle, and the ability to ride it safely in Melbourne,  will provide a safe and accessible means of transport. Participation in the program will provide opportunities for positive engagement with members of their local community; other participants, volunteer mentors, and those organisations involved in the program. 

Each program is delivered over five sessions, in which participants are provided with a bike in good working order, a helmet, a lock, and lights thanks to our partners Nutcase and Knog. Participants also receive instruction on basic bicycle maintenance, including how to perform a bike check before riding, how to grease the chain, check the brakes, inflate tyres, remove a wheel and change a puncture.

The group are assessed for their riding skills and ability, and take part in off road skills sessions to improve their balance, braking, riding one handed (for signalling), changing gears, slow riding, starting and stopping.

The program also delivers 3 classroom sessions that outline safe riding strategies, road rules, signage meanings, negotiating intersections, roundabouts, hook turns and guidelines for riding near trams.

Participants learn to plot a route for a ride on the travel smart map, and are guided on how to best plan a route for riding in the city. The program also includes 3 rides of varying distances and complexity, building up to a long ride around the city. 

Before graduating , participants undergo assessment with a quiz (usually passing with flying colours!) and all report a significant improvement in their skills, knowledge and confidence after the program.

We're working closely with AMES and the ASRC to identify suitable participants for the program but if you think you know someone who would benefit then get in touch. Or if you love riding your bike and would like to help someone else learn to love riding their's then you can also get in touch to volunteer as a mentor for the program. You can contact Jette Achleitner at The Squeaky Wheel via email jette@thesqueakywheel.com.au
