To celebrate the fourth Basil Sellers Art Prize at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, we are hosting a FREE guided bike tour of some of Melbourne's greatest sporting and cultural venues, finishing up with an artist talk at the exhibition venue.

\"Sport is about winners and losers, individuals and teams, rules and penalties, equipment and architecture, fans and souvenirs, triumphs and scandals.\" This tour will take you on a circular journey around the edges of the city, starting at the Melbourne Museum/Exhibition Buildings, taking in the MCG, NGV and Etihad Stadium, and invites you to share your reflections at each stop on how sport and art jostle for currency in Melbourne's cultural life.

About LAB DE STU
LAB DE STU was created in 2011 as a vehicle for Dale Hardiman, Adam Lynch and Andre Hnatojko to promote themselves and their design work. Today it is a design showcase, a mode in which they expose their creations in a collective scenario under a uniform banner. LAB DE STU have won numerous awards and frequently exhibit both nationally and internationally - most recently at the Milan Furniture Fair with The Other Hemisphere and at the National Gallery of Victoria as a part of Melbourne Now. All 3 members work collaboratively and independently, allowing a diverse range of work to be created under the single brand.

This ride is suitable for intermediate and experienced bike riders. It will take place on off road and on road bike lanes in traffic. Bring water, snacks and sunscreen.

Departing from Docklands at Hortus underneath the iconic Cow Up a Tree sculpture, the rides will lead our intrepid riders down the path of the mighty Yarra River, as it heaves along the South Wharf and through Port Melbourne before spilling out into the bay by Westgate Park. Along the way your ride host will point out sites of interest, so you are guaranteed to learn something new!

Arriving at the park, you will be introduced to an incredible juxtaposition of nature and industry as the Westgate Bridge casts shadows over the biodiversity below. See a ship go by as you are taken on a guided tour of the park, getting as close as you can to where the river meets the sea.

The Westgate Park Open Day is a 100% BYO and TIH (take it home) event. Bring a picnic, thermos, mug and provisions and lose yourself in the wild natural scenes tucked away in Melbourne's industrial heart. 

The Discovery Rides will depart Docklands at 10.00am and 12.00pm. The rides include a guided tour of Westgate Park. Riders will be accompanied back to Harbour Esplanade.

The rides will take place on both off road and on road bike paths and cover approx 6km each way.  The rides are suitable for intermediate or experienced bike riders. 

Cost: FREE

We've teamed up with Treadlie Magazine to stage a Pushy Women ride in support of the Afghan Women’s Cycling Team.

If the biggest problem you have jumping on your bike is matching your scarf to your panniers, spare a thought for the women of Afghanistan for whom, whether they want to ride to the shops or ride to win, cultural norms make it almost impossible.

The Afghan Women’s Cycling Team is changing that with the support of the Mountain2Mountain foundation and Liv/Giant. A team of determined Afghan women are pedalling a revolution and have secured an invitation to compete at the Asian Games in South Korea in September.

And while their training may be rigorous, ours certainly isn’t! We’ll start off with coffee, and finish with cake. In between there will be a relaxed meandering ride through Melbourne’s inner-north with guest speakers and plenty of time to stop and chat.  Men and women from all over the globe will be riding in the Global Solidarity Ride,  we’ll be joining them and you can too!

Along the way, Catherine Deveny, the bicycling brains behind Pushy Women will speak about her experience in Afghanistan and the obstacles women face there while champion cyclist and champion doctor, Bridie O’Donnell will talk about the many inequalities that still face Western women who choose to compete as cyclists.

There’ll be coffee, cakes, velodromes, heels, short films and a warm inner glow! We’ll be meeting and leaving from St Ali North where VeloCycles will look your bike over before we depart while you enjoy one of St Ali’s finest roast.

Dare to Ride is on Saturday August 30th. We meet up at St Ali North at 1:30 for a 2pm departure. Our afternoon will finish with cake and refreshments around 5pm.

THIS RIDE IS BOOKED OUT
Please donate to the the MOUNTAIN TO MOUNTAIN fundraising team to show your support. 

You can keep up to date with all the details at the Dare to Ride Facebook event. #solidarityride2014 #daretoride

2.5 DAYS, 4 SPEAKERS, DOZENS OF IDEAS. BUILDING IDEAS TO MAKE CYCLING BETTER FOR ALL. 

Cyclehack is an event bringing people together to come up with ideas that solve the barriers to cycling and build them in under48 hours. Teams of people with a variety of skills will collaborate to build and make new ideas a reality.

We’re looking for people like you. People who are excited about making cycling easier where they live and have experience of moving around the city, so that includes everyone. Your background could be in design, technology or you’re just passionate about cycling and solving problems. After the event we upload all the ideas online for the world to share.

WHAT WILL YOU CREATE?

You will come up with ideas that removes a barrier to cycling, made real into some kind of prototype that can be implemented into a city environment. Prototypes can be physical, digital or even policy based.

You might design a mudguard that can be cut from a plastic bottle to solve wet bums, a handlebar paint squeezer that reveals hidden potholes with luminous paint at night or a website showing where you can find a cycle buddy in your city, removing the barrier of fear of riding on unfamiliar roads. 

Download the weekend program outlining the Cyclehack process.

Cyclehack is also run in several other cities – Glasgow, Hamburg, San Fransisco, Kuala Lumpur, Philadelphia, Bristol etc. – at the same time so you will be joining a global event, all working together to make cycling easier. Be part of the big Cyclehack community.

This 4 hour program presented by Bikes at Work will help you improve your skills, build your confidence and learn safety tips for riding on busy roads and paths.

Part 1 (10-12noon): In a traffic free area we will cover route planning, bike and equipment safety checks, bike control skills, emergency stopping, traffic skills and gears.

Lunch break (12-12:30pm): BYO picnic lunch

Part 2 (12:30-2:30pm): Discuss cyclists' rights and responsibilities on the road, safe cycling techniques, positioning and etiquette. A group on-road ride around Preston and Preston West to put theory into practice. Where to position when there's no bike lane, avoiding car door collisions, where to wait at an intersection, how to turn right, approaching and safely going through roundabouts, crossing tram tracks and more! If time allows, we'll even show you how to fix a flat tyre!

Proudly sponsored by the City of Darebin for people who live, work or study in the municipality.

Program is FREE for concession card holders - we just have a $20 refundable booking fee to discourage no-shows!

Mmmmm, what to do when Cyclofemme (an international Celebration of Women's Riding), Mothers Day and Eurovision all fall ON THE SAME DAY???

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Eurovision themed fancy dress all girl mother-loving bike party? YES, but with crafty effects and streamers to decorate our bikes in national colours? YES. And with cake? YES. And photos in the park? YES. And finishing off somewhere with a refreshing bev? YES.

Wow, we're really on the same wavelength...

Best of all, this special edition Spokewoman Breeze ride event is partnering up with Girls Club, (a group fostering positive discussion about being female for females) to make the bike party TRULY UNFORGETTABLE.

So what are you waiting for

\n When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.\n

Charlie Farren is one of Australia's longest serving and most interesting bicycle advocates. Not only is she the co-owner of one of the largest vintage bicycle collections in the WORLD, she has also climbed the alps (on a bike of course!), ridden with the blind and frocked up splendidly on Tweed Rides with the Melbourne Vintage Bicycle club.

An inveterate traveler Charlie has travelled the world by bicycle, from touring in the high Himalayas to long distance Penny Farthing rides. Bicycles play a vital role in her life - it’s a life-long love affair that has never waned.  Born in London, she has had various occupations from secretary to teacher to studio potter, Bicycle Event organizer with a finger in virtually every bicycle pie that Australia has to offer.  She has unbounded energy and enthusiasm for life , especially life with a bicycle.

Charlie is also a proud Melbournian and this tour will follow one of her favourite routes with a story (or two) to tell at each stop. Departing from Gasworks in Port Melbourne, taking in Station Pier, Princes Pier, Westgate Park and then hopping aboard the Punt for a ride to Scienceworks, before heading back across the water along the beach, wind streaming through our (helmeted) hair. 

Part performance, part observance, no parts endurance, Pushy Women Rides bring together women in a unique setting to consider what it means to be a woman on wheels. 

Cost: $15
