Make a Zine  plus much much more! 

It sounds like its going to be a vibrant addition to the local community so make sure you get down there to check it out and even better, make it a bike trip! You can find out more about the Opening Day here.

The feedback from our Westie Women series earlier this year was unanimous - you want more riding for women in Melbourne's west! 

Thanks to Maribyrnong City Council we've teamed up with Joyce Watts of CycleStyle and MEL: HOT OR NOT to bring you the Westie Winter Warmers ride, the first in a series of foodie cycling tours for women of the west. 

Explore the global cuisines of the inner west this winter while getting out and exploring the west on your bike. What better way to stay warm than pedalling your way from one gastronomic delight to the next?

Join us over ninety minutes for the Westie Winter Warmers ride on Saturday 18th July for a discovery tour of local specialities. We'll be kicking off at 12:30pm in Footscray and Joyce Watts will introduce us to some of her favourite local purveyors of delicious warming lamb skewers, Salvadorean papusas, croissants and hot chocolate and cannoli.

This is one bicycle tour that won't be leaving you hungry and as a bonus, you'll also be building your confidence getting around the west on a bike with a bunch of like-minded ladies as we pedal around Footscray. 

There's only ten places on this ride. Tickets are $10 per person and they'll fill up fast so be sure to book your ticket and make sure you don't miss out. Is there a better way to spend a wintery Saturday afternoon?  

Westie Womens Foodie Rides are a Maribyrnong City Council Gender Equity initiative

We all know that riding a bike is good for us. And its certainly good for our kids! Families who ride together are happy, healthy and better able to concentrate over the course of the day.  Would you like to be able to ride with your kids, maybe to school, the market, friend's places or the park? If you're being held back by a lack of confidence in your own skills or knowledge and live in North Melbourne join us for one of our Good Wheel Cycling with ChildrenTraining sessions.

The Squeaky Wheel will be presenting Good Wheel training sessions, funded by the City of Melbourne, for parents a carers who would like to ride with kids.  This program is FREE to attend and suitable for people with basic bike skills (not beginners).

This two and a half hour session will take you through everything you need to know to safely check your own and your children's bike and equipment, be confident about the road rules that apply to you and your children, practice your own skills and know about the skills your child needs to have as well as give you information about local routes. If time permits, each session will finish with a short local ride practising everything we've talked about.

We all know that riding a bike is good for us. And its certainly good for our kids! Families who ride together are happy, healthy and better able to concentrate over the course of the day.  Would you like to be able to ride with your kids, maybe to school, the market, friend's places or the park? If you're being held back by a lack of confidence in your own skills or knowledge and live in North Melbourne join us for one of our Good Wheel Parents and Carers Training sessions.

The Squeaky Wheel will be presenting Good Wheel training sessions, funded by the City of Melbourne, for parents a carers who would like to ride with kids.  This program is FREE to attend and suitable for people with basic bike skills (not beginners).

This two and a half hour session will take you through everything you need to know to safely check your own and your children's bike and equipment, be confident about the road rules that apply to you and your children, practice your own skills and know about the skills your child needs to have as well as give you information about local routes. If time permits, each session will finish with a short local ride practising everything we've talked about.

Women of Bendigo!

Do you want to take part in transformation of Bendigo into a Bike City? This social training course has been designed to develop the skills and the knowledge needed to ride a bike for transport, and to create networks for continued riding. 

This 4 hour program will be delivered by our all female Austcycle accredited teachers, with local bike riding women assisting. The session will include:

  • Story sharing over morning tea
  • Instruction on performing basic bike check & maintenance
  • Safety induction for riding on roads
  • Skills development for riding in traffic (appropriate to current skill level)
  • Road rules and traffic familiarisation
  • Route planning
  • Social ride (approx 5 km) to final destination

This course is not appropriate for total beginners, as we won't have time to teach you how to ride from scratch in the session! If you are total beginner and would like to learn to ride, please contact Jette

No matter what your current skill level, you will be sure to get something out of this fun and social program.

You will need to bring a bicycle in good working order, wear comfortable brightly coloured clothing, bring a water bottle and some money for lunch (we will stop at a cafe before the ride).

Meet at the Chinese Musuem Precint, next to the Red Lotus sculpture.  

This FREE program is limited to 22 participants, so book your place early to avoid disappointment.

The Pushy Women will be setting off from our favourite Capital City Trail cafe – Green Park Dining for a ride to namesake event – the Pushy Women Speaking Event! This year the line up features Julia Morris, Clare Bowditch, Fiona O’Loughlin, Rachel Berger, Alicia Sometimes, Fiona Patten and of course our patron and host, Catherine Deveny.

We’ll mill about enjoying a coffee thanks to our charming hosts, and then set off on a scenic route into Trades Hall for a stand up show all about women on bikes.

We’ll be riding at a VERY relaxed pace. So relaxed we may stop moving at times to gawk at shop windows or wonder at the first autumn leaves sprouting in leafy Carlton North. This ride is suitable for beginner riders, but you must be confident riding in light traffic.

If you want to see the show with us, make sure you have booked your tickets early, the show will SELL OUT. After the show, we’ll pop across the road for a refreshing beverage at the John Curtin Hotel. Lovely.

The ride will be conducted on road, and is not suitable for beginner riders. Bring a bicycle in good working order, wear comfortable brightly coloured clothing and a SMILE!
