News from Port Adelaide BUG

2014 is flying! We have a renewed Government, new local MPs and a new Minister of Transport. And all sorts of things are happening in the Port's bike world! Sam Powrie reports.

Recent activity by the Bicycle Institute

Here are a just a few things The Bicycle Institute has been up to in the last month.

The Bicycle Institute has been watching the growth in users of the the Mike Turtur bikeway at Unley and note that the council has been tiding up overhanging foliage and sweeping the path for debris, but it is a narrow shared route and surface is poor in places. The speed of cyclists often disregards the condition. We are approaching Unley Council over these issues.

Bike Art Adelaide POZIBLE campaign

Help us raise the funds necessary to produce Tandem - the flagship exhibition of 2014 Bike Art Adelaide Festival! A community-centred DIY Festival, Bike Art Adelaide is run by a dedicated team of volunteers.The original idea was simple - to display artwork about and featuring bikes at the same time as the Australian Cycling Conference and the Santos Tour Down Under. The first, highly successful, edition of this bi-annual Festival was held in 2012 and now we're back to bring you the second instalment in January 2014!

Calling creative cyclists!

Bike Art Adelaide (BAA) is a community event that aims to explore, express and celebrate everything bike during the frenzy of cycle-love that accompanies the Santos Tour Down Under.  In 2014, BAA will be held from 13-31 January.
