      Bike Fun Melbourne
      Rides and events from 8/1/2011
      Here is your list of bikefun events and more. Love to see you on a ride soon! Bikefun rides mostly go at a social pace, Some rides are off-road recreational, some are on-road mini-masses. Food and moderate alcohol consumption are often featured. We also list rides organised by others, usually with a link to their website.
      Check back at our calendar for latest updates, or follow us on twitter @bikefunmelb
      Please tell us about rides and events via this form: http://www.bikefun.org/bikefun.nsf/melbourne/bikefunsubmit

      Ride-in Movies II — Saturday 15th January
      ******************************************************
      7:30PM Terminus Hotel 492 Queens Parade Clifton Hill. We had a great turn-up for the first one so — Hollywood style — we're doing the obvious sequel. Meet at the Terminus Hotel Clifton Hill for a strict (this time!) 7:30pm depart to Coburg Nth. (Those of us having a meal first will be there from 6:30.)
      Ride leisurely up through Thornbury, and West Preston with a stop to pick up cold drinks and snacks near Preston Market. Movies start at dusk.
      Sound reinforcement will be supplied so all you need to bring is a picnic blanket, chair and something to eat, drink & share...(there will be a small BBQ/stove for those who want to do a bit of a BBQ cook-up).
      Mini-masses afterwards! South via the Upfield path to the city and East toward the Banyule area via LaTrobe Uni to get you home safely.
      *** This event is naturally weather dependent *** Organiser X-rider 0417145375

      Full Moon Ride — Thursday 20th January
      ******************************************************
      7:30PM Mordialloc Railway Station. Take the 6:36 Flinders St Frankston train (platform 8) to Mordialloc Station, arriving at 7:24pm (We'll be in the last carriage). We will ride along the bay back into the City with maybe the chance of a swim along the way. The water in the bay is warm at this time of year, so bring your cozzie plus food and drink to share.

      Frocks on Bikes inaugural Melbourne ride - Sunday 30th January
      ******************************************************
      3:00PM Edinburgh Gardens. Frock-wearing cyclists, please join us for a genteel Sunday afternoon bike ride. Starting from the Edinburgh Gardens, we anticipate that we will progress in a leisurely manner along Park St, do a lap of Royal Park, then continue along the Upfield bikeway to the Brunswick Mallet Sports Club, where there will be croquet, Pimm's, and possibly even cucumber sandwiches. We'll have the clubhouse to ourselves, and a croquet aficionado on hand to explain and demonstrate. Bike ride is free, croquet and Pimm's will set you back $20 — very important that you RSVP and stick to it for booking/catering purposes as we'll be purchasing the Pimm's ahead of time. It is entirely possible that some members of the party will progress to the Grand View Hotel around the corner on Pearson St for additional sustenance at around 6pm.
