Planning on attending the Eco Living Festival on Sunday 18 September? We hope you'll ride your bike there! Visit our Transport Hub to learn about all things sustainable transport and park your bike at our Bike Valet, which will be set up for the day. Here's what else is on:
Does your bike need a little tune-up? Bring it along to the Bike Boyz stall and their specialised bike mechanics will fix it up! There will be two mechanics at the festival to lend a hand. They'll be doing minor checks of the whole bike as well as gear and brake adjustments.
Are you looking to try a bike for the first time? Or do you want to know if your child is ready to give up their training wheels? Pop along to Try-a-bike by Bike Wise, who will be providing a selection of kid’s bikes, balance bikes and Tokyo bikes. Plus, they’ll be handing out bike maps and other information. Bike Wise have trained thousands of people to ride with skills and confidence required to be an effective bike rider in Sydney.
BIKEast Trishaw Free Ride
BIKEast and Cycling Without Age Australia will be providing free Trishaw rides for those who would like to experience the joy of riding without riding a bike themselves. Trishaw rides will be given around the Environment Park and will take about 20 minutes each. BIKEast is the bicycle advocacy organisation for the Eastern Suburbs. They'll provide maps and information about bicycling in the Eastern Suburbs and beyond. Cycling Without Age provides rides to seniors on electric trishaws, which will be available for free rides at the Eco Living Festival.
Bike ‘n’ Blend
Feeling thirsty? Hop on a bike blender and whiz yourself up a fresh juice using the power of your legs! Pop the kids on a bike and let them use their own energy to make their own smoothie! Make your own smoothies under your own pedal power. Kids and adult size bikes available. Healthy exercise, healthy drink and fun!
While you’re there, check out the EV Bulk Buy workshop and find out how we’re working with the Good Car company to bring electric vehicles to Randwick City. The Randwick EV bulk-buy is an opportunity for the residents of Randwick to access an affordable electric vehicle. This is a partnership between the Good Car Company and Randwick Council. Five electric cars will be on display with hands-on information on how to buy an affordable electric vehicle.
