Moonee Ponds trail - Sunday 11th July

Tour Malmsbury Bakery & elsewhere - Mon 12th to Wed 14th July
It’s almost worth doing this ride just for the chance to visit the 
excellent Malmsbury Bakery. It’s also a magnificent ride through the bush 
and farmlands of the area. It’s fairly short for a weekend ride at 85km 
with the first day being only 35km but that gives you plenty of time to 
explore the attractions of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.  Start at 
Malmsbury Train Station Monday morning, get a train out from Spencer / 
Southern Cross Station. Cycle to Daylesford, stay over night at a hostel 
and do some walking around Hepburn Springs the following day. Cycle to 
Ballarat and get a train back to Melbourne.

BFM Mystery Ride & Urban Camping Friday 16th July
7:00PM Hosier Lane, City.   The rest is a mystery (Hopefully not to the 
organiser).  Bring a lump or two of wood, some food, drink and good 
conversation to share. The destination spot is perfect for a bit of urban 
camping and it's not a school night so bring a tent or make arrangements 
to share ;-).  Non campers will find a railway station not too far away or 
ride back to town.  Organiser: X-rider

Speaker: Denmark's Bicycle Ambassador Mikael Colville- Anderson of 
Mikael Colville-Andersen is a filmmaker, photographer and urban mobility 
expert who is also known as Denmark's Bicycle Ambassador. He lectures 
around the world on how cities can and should re-establish the bicycle as 
a respected and accepted transport form. In his presentation 'Four Goals 
for Promoting Urban Cycling', Colville-Andersen explains Copenhagen's 
journey – then, now and into the future – towards establishing the bicycle 
as a feasible, acceptable form of transport. Colville-Andersen shows how 
other cities can be inspired by the Copenhagen experience.
