*2. Yarra Council feedback needed - Fairfield Pipe Bridges problem with
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.
