3. Cycle Sport Victoria: Bikes for Victorian Bush Fire Appeal Saturday 14th

Like many Australians the cycling community will be doing its bit to offer
what support it can to the victims of the Victorian bushfires at the
Austral Wheelrace on Saturday 14 February.

CycleSport Victoria and the organiser’s of the 111th Austral Wheelrace
will be offering free general admission to Saturday’s race at Hisense
Arena for anyone who brings a working bike to donate to the Victorian Bush
Fire Appeal. The Kinglake, St Andrews and broader Yarra Valley region
affected by the fires is close to the hearts of many cyclists as key
training areas.

4. Details from Facebook event: Bush Fire Fundraising Ride Sunday 22nd


The Freedom Machine is currently working on organising a fundraising road
ride to help support the victems of Victoria's Bush Fires. As most people
will know, Kinglake has been one of the hardest towns hit, a major ride
destination for a lot of us. I am currently putting together a flyer and
trying to get as much corporate support as possible.

The ride will be conducted on Sunday 22/2/09. For more info or if you
would like to know how to help out on the day please contact Wade or Emi
at TFM Brighton (Ph: 95925199, brighton at freedommachine.com.au)

***Please be aware that this will be hopefully a big pack ride, experience
in this style of riding will be necessary Otherwise stay tuned for where
we are meeting afterwards for coffee, refreshments & donations***
