      Tour Malmsbury Bakery & elsewhere - Mon 12th to Wed 14th July
      ******************************************************
      It's almost worth doing this ride just for the chance to visit the excellent Malmsbury Bakery. It's also a magnificent ride through the bush and farmlands of the area. It's fairly short for a weekend ride at 85km with the first day being only 35km but that gives you plenty of time to explore the attractions of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. Start at Malmsbury Train Station Monday morning, get a train out from Spencer / Southern Cross Station. Cycle to Daylesford, stay over night at a hostel and do some walking around Hepburn Springs the following day. Cycle to Ballarat and get a train back to Melbourne.

      BFM Mystery Ride & Urban Camping Friday 16th July
      ******************************************************
      7:00PM Hosier Lane, City. The rest is a mystery (Hopefully not to the organiser).  Bring a lump or two of wood, some food, drink and good conversation to share. The destination spot is perfect for a bit of urban camping and it's not a school night so bring a tent or make arrangements to share ;-). Non campers will find a railway station not too far away or ride back to town. Organiser: X-rider

      Speaker: Denmark's Bicycle Ambassador Mikael Colville- Anderson of Copenhagenize.
      Mikael Colville-Andersen is a filmmaker, photographer and urban mobility expert who is also known as Denmark's Bicycle Ambassador. He lectures around the world on how cities can and should re-establish the bicycle as a respected and accepted transport form. In his presentation 'Four Goals for Promoting Urban Cycling', Colville-Andersen explains Copenhagen's journey – then, now and into the future – towards establishing the bicycle as a feasible, acceptable form of transport. Colville-Andersen shows how other cities can be inspired by the Copenhagen experience.
