      Gowanbrae Community Ride - Saturday 17th October
      ******************************************************
      11:30am childrens playground in Elms Court, Gowanbrae (Melway map 16 B2)
      Moreland Council is planning a community bike ride on Saturday 17th October as part of the TravelSmart project we're doing there, and we'd love some volunteers to assist to lead or sweep the ride. We've just built a link to the Western Ring Road, and we want to showcase to Gowanbrae residents how easy and safe it is to get to Gladstone Park and down to Jacana Wetlands. It will be a very leisurely 7km ride aimed at families. There will be a community BBQ afterwards (open to non-cyclists too), so volunteers will be fed! If you're interested in coming along and helping out, please contact Kylie Huard on t: 9240 2264 f: 9240 1205 e: khuard@...

So here's more of a Waxing Crescent Ride instead with a BBQ, Bonfire (and maybe some urban camping?) it could all be on.... We'll ride some 15-20k of inner urban trails to a nice little spot where we can sit around a fire, bbq things (or torture marshmallows) and shoot the breeze.... As always, bring food, drink and good conversation to share. Organizer - X-rider 0417145375
