It's this time of the year when Moreland City Council kick off their annual art-in-public-spaces event and Squeaky Wheel will take the community on a treasure hunt on two wheels to explore MoreArt Festival in depth!

A vibrant cluster of artworks and artists appear in unusual, and unexpected public sites along the Upfield and Sydney Road rail, road and bike precinct.

Hop on your bike and join on her journey our host Jane O'Neill, director of Artificionado Tours. Meet the artists and participate in their work. Now in its sixth year, this eclectic and diverse festival program demonstrates once again the ability of artists to transform urban environments into vehicles for contemplation, celebration and imagination.

This is a FREE ride but it is ESSENTIAL that you RESERVE your place.

The Squeaky Wheel's Wheelie Workshops are at first glance, a fairly innocuous form of children's entertainment. We rock up at events, venues and festivals with a marquee, our trained Bike Doctors, a hot glue gun and a mountain of dinosaurs and other decorative devices so that kids of all ages can spend time decorating their bike (or any other wheels they have with them - scooters or pushers, we're not snobby!), themselves or their parents, before going for a spin in a parade!

 Often we bring some spare bikes (and helmets) of our own, so that everyone can have a go whether they have a bike or not, and as well as a parade we'll also give tips or even lessons, depending on the event. In fact, a Wheelie Workshop is the very embodiment of our philosophy around not only getting more people onto their bikes but reminding everyone of just how much fun riding a bike can be!

 

While engaged in some silly fun with our Bike Doctors, kids (and their parents) are actually learning how to do a safety check on their bike and the crucial elements to check before each ride. Our parade is the perfect opportunity to give some tips on technique and handling, the sort of small details that can turn riding from a chore to a spin! 

There is however, another element to a Wheelie Workshop. As their children are absorbed in deciding whether to glue the blue dinosaur or the red palm tree onto their handlebars, parents find themselves standing around and musing on their own bike-riding. Maybe they've fallen into conversation with another parent or one of our Bike Doctors, maybe it's the sight of their own child finding the confidence to spin three times around the parade ground. Whatever it is, a Wheelie Workshop seems to remind people not only of all the times they have enjoyed riding a bike but of the possibility of going on to do so, and of involving their children. 

All of The Squeaky Wheel's staff have working with children checks and with Austcycyle trained coaches we can deliver a Wheelie Workshop customised to your event and audience.  

We will have our stall at the annual Fawkner Festa, a community event that celebrates the uniqueness of Fawkner, with a vibrant showcase of music, dance, food, circus, community market and activities for young and old. An initiative from Moreland City Council

Get in touch if you'd like to find out more about booking a Wheelie Workshop!

New International Student Visitors get Insiders Tour of Melbourne by Bike

This September The City of Melbourne will again fund a series of life-changing bike tours for International Students. Now in its 5th year, the program has set the course for many international students by providing a warm welcome and knowledge base on how to navigate the streets of their new home – by bike!

The program provides four training and tour sessions, meeting at Melbourne's beating heart, Federation Square. The students will revise or learn basic bike handling and safety skills, learn the rules and customs of the Melbourne roads and set off on a curated tour taking in places of interest and value for young students.

All of this will happen from the seat of Melbourne's famous Blue Bikes, provided by project partners Melbourne Bike Share. Program participants will also learn how to hire and use the bikes, setting them up for a seamless use of the public transport system.

Each tour is conducted by AustCycle qualified bicycle training experts and is hosted by a local bike loving student, to provide the International students with all the insider tips on how to make the most out of Melbourne's ever growing café, food, and music culture, not to mention the nightlife!

September dates for the program are below, registration is essential!

In this two and a half hour session you'll get to know a group of fabulous local women just like yourself, all while honing the skills you need to safely get around by bike.

As it is an afternoon session we will kick off with free coffee at Green Park Dining sharing our bike stories. From there we will move on into a traffic-free environment and practise all the basic bike skills you need to safely move onto the roads. There'll be plenty of time to ask questions in a supportive and friendly group. Moving on to some quiet local roads we'll learn how to use the bike lane confidently, navigate roundabouts, make hook turns, confidently choose our position on the road and safely get across intersections. 

We'll be finishing again at Green Park Dining where we can debrief the ride and discuss what to do when you have a mechanical, route planning around the City of Yarra and further afield, and road rules and there'll be plenty of time to answer questions as they come up, whether they're about bicycles, accessories, riding at night or finding friends to ride with. You'll also get to meet the guys from Velo Cycles who will be answering all of your bike-shop related questions!

The Pushy Women Yarra training session is on Sunday October 15th at 2pm in Fitzroy. Suitable for women who have a bicycle and are able to ride a bike but wish to improve their confidence. All participants must be over 12 years old and any under 16 MUST be accompanied by a guardian who is also enrolled on the course. The course will be conducted in a traffic-free environment and on roads. Thanks to the City of Yarra this session is free but you MUST register!
