      Bike Fun Melbourne presents...

      *** 2009 Bike Fun ***
      Check back at http://bikefun.org/calendar.html for latest updates

      Geelong Full Moon Ride - Saturday 10th of January
      6.30pm Marshall Station.   We will ride to Torquay - a leisurely pedal
      of about 14km through generally flat rural land.  Land soon to be
      reclaimed as the new suburb "Thomsons Creek" providing cheap land for
      the burgeoning population. A BBQ is planned at the Torquay Back Beach,
      where those inclined can go for a swim, before heading home via
      the Surfcoast Hwy to Marshall. There will be a car & trailer at
      Torquay for those of faint conviction desirous of a lift back. As
      usual, those with a Christian name A-L please bring an entrée or side
      salad to share.   M-Z named souls could bring a sweet of some kind
      (cheese & bikkies, sweet biscuits, cake, dried fruit, etc). Just bring
      small amounts or there will be waste.  We should be back at Marshall
      Station at about 10.30pm all going well. 
      The last train to Melbourne leaves Marshall at 9.20pm or South Geelong
      at 10.26pm. See: http://vline.com.au
      For a map of the route:

      Full Moon Ride - Sunday 11th of January
      Take the 6:05pm Werribee train to Hoppers Crossing (arrive 6:51pm) and
      ride various bike paths including Skeleton Creek, Cheetham wetlands,
      then Supper (including a BBQ if you like - BYO) in a park in Altona
      and then on to Williamstown (27km). Those more enthusiastic can ride
      into town, those less energetic can take the train from Williamstown.
      View the route at http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/FMR-11-1-2009
      Most of the route will be in daylight, but we will see the moon after
      supper. There is no shopping around Hoppers Crossing railway station.

      Pub Bug - Friday 16th of January
      6pm - Mountain Goat Brewery - Cnr North St & Clarke & St - Richmond

      Critical Mass - Friday 30th of January and Last Friday every month.
      5:30PM - State Library. The motorists will all be back from holidays,

      for humanity, for a brief interval.
      Come and enjoy the party on (2) wheels. organiser: you

      Beach Rides - hot nights in Jan/Feb/Mar - register for text message

      ride to

      Every Friday
      6pm sharp Cyclic Bikes, 56 Pin Oak Cres (opposite Newmarket Station)
      Ride from Flemington to Mountain Goat Brewery (Richmond). Different
      route each week, faster than your average bikefun ride.
      Might be a gap over the Christmas break, phone Cyclic Bikes to find out.

      Most rides go at a social pace, run rain or shine, and are free (like
      the streets themselves).

      BikeFun depends on people like you to create events and contribute to
      Melbourne's creative bike community. Organise a ride (or whatever) and
      BikeFun will promote it. email details to: bikefun@...
