*2. Yarra Council feedback needed - Fairfield Pipe Bridges problem with 
user behaviour*
 From Mark at Yarra Open Space: Currently there are signs that require 
cyclists to dismount, which isn’t enforced and no one adheres to.  At 
other bridges Yarra has changed the rule and included signage so that 
cyclists should give way to pedestrians and conflict has dramatically 
reduced.  Council is looking at changed signage, linemarking, decals or 
messaging and would appreciate any suggestion.  Please provide comments 
directly to Mark.Donnellan at yarracity.vic.gov.au

*3. Other events*: Melbourne BikeRave kicks off 6pm tomorrow at The 
Angel at  Birrarung Marr, all the deets:

Bike Rave is a DIY event. Grab an MP3 player and put the mix on it. 
Bring your own speakers, build a sound bike, be creative! Need sound for 
your bike? Get a basket and some computer speakers, or head to Jaycar, 
JB-HIFI, etc to setup a self contained set. There are some great 
solutions from $15, and some pretty impressive creations. Just remember 
to charge those batteries.
