The best way to get to know a new city ... of course, by bicycle! And the best way to start riding in a new city? With a bike buddy, alongside like minded fellows... we're pretty sure!

If you are an international student and recently arrived in Melbourne, you are lucky - as we take you out on a guided bike excursion, showing you some great destinations to relax from busy student life and also how to navigate safely in city traffic. 

Ride with us along the Yarra River, find out about Melbourne's arts precinct and get to know a bunch of great people, some exciting places to drink, eat and hang out in the CBD, while we give you handy tips to tackle the busy road environment. 

You don't even have to have your own bike, courtesy of Melbourne Bike Share, you'll be provided with a blue bike and helmet for the tour. Too easy!

$5 (redeemed in a free coffee/drink during the tour)

Book your ticket

Come and meet us this Saturday 22 March (2-5pm) at the Lord Mayor's Student Welcome at City Square and have a chat or a go on the blue bikes. 

Check out RMIT's Newsline video featuring our International Student Tours from last year.

During the tour you'll be guided by trained bike buddies and covered by Cycling Victoria insurance. International Student Bike Tours are staged in partnership with The City of Melbourne and act as bicycle orientation for international students recently arrived in Melbourne.

The City of Melbourne is working with The Squeaky Wheel and behaviour change experts Mutfung on the City of Melbourne's new road safety campaign Share Our Streets: Pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and motorcycle riders are asked to show courtesy and respect to make their journey around the city safer and more enjoyable – for everyone!

We're pleased to support the City of Melbourne in running more than 60 activities at locations around the city at sites where a particular issue or risk has been identified, some of which are:

  • Shared spaces: Some of Melbourne's most loved destinations are shared spaces, like Southbank or Harbour Esplanade. Pedestrians and bike riders may seem like odd couples but they need to get along. Street teams will remind everyone to look out for others in shared spaces (see below for pop up locations in the next weeks).
  • Distractions: One of the biggest risks for pedestrians results from the distraction of mobile phones – look up when crossing the street.  And, during April, keep your eyes peeled for larger than life characters on Swanston Street!
  • Car dooring: Particularly along St Kilda Road, car dooring remains an issue. Activations will be held to remind motorists to look out for cyclists when opening their car doors after parking.

With the launch of the campaign last week in Southbank, the Share Our Streets teams have started to share common sense tips that can make a big difference to everyone’s experience of the city - and now YOU are invited to share your thoughts!

Come by for a chat and a FREE freshly ground Dreux & Ghisallo's coffee while your bike gets a FREE quick tune up at Good Cycles mobile bike maintenance station - you might get to know your fellow path user (and even like it).

See your street teams popping up, stop in and join the conversation at these locations:

Harbour Esplanade/Bourke St: 7.30am-9am and 12-1.30pm (11, 13, 14, 18, 20 March)

Southbank Spillway (close to Southbank footbridge): 7.30-9am (21, 25, 27, 28 March and 1, 3, 4, 8, 15 and 17 April).
