Melbourne Design Ride
Experience the richness of Melbourne’s design, architectural and artistic history in a relaxed and social setting. The Melbourne Design Ride is a guided group bicycle tour taking in iconic designed spaces and buildings in and around the Melbourne CBD. The tour itself takes 2.5 hours and involves frequent stops, presentations, and discussions about a range of historical, contemporary, and temporal aspects of Melbourne design.
The ride is designed to enhance cultural experiences by integrating bike riding. Staged several times throughout the year in collaboration with presenting partners, each ride is curated by a prominent person in the world of design, from architects to designers to professors. You'll gain a wealth of knowledge that will ensure you never think the same way twice about Melbourne's iconic (or overlooked) buildings, landscape and design history.
The Melbourne Design Ride has been presented as part of the 2013 and 2014 Melbourne Knowledge Week program of events. Stay tuned for info on the 2015 ride.
