GreenWay Hub Day

The GreenWay Hub Day proved a success. In high winter fifteen riders braved a chilly morning that became a beautiful sunny winters day to test the GreenWay Food and Art Trail. Part of the trail anyway, there will be a trial of the full trail in coming months. 

Gilbert lead riders to various galleries while including the GreenWay between the bicycle bridge and Lords Rd tunnel. We visited Art Est, thanks Nicole and Sandra for the impromptu sustainable printing workshop. From there to Boomalli where Graham Toomey welcomed us to the revitalised Boomalli Coop Gallery. Then to Articulate where Tracey Clement gave us the skinny on her consumption of plasticware.

Craig looked after the Fedner Blender on its second only outing. Looking forward to a busy summer and by then we should have it all tweeked. 

The GreenWay Sustainability Committee would like anyone who attended yesterday's events to provide feedback via the form - GreenWay Hub Day Feedback These can be filled in and sent to us at info@artcyclesydney.com or sent direct to the GreenWay at greenway@ashfield.nsw.gov.com.

Thanks to everyone who came and look forward to next MeetUp.

Bike-it Noumea

Hi cycling friends,
Looking for a mid winter exotic and new cycling touring destination? Then come and join me and 4 others in a small MTB/road touring group heading to New Caledonia July 19th 2012 for some riding adventures.

Plan is for a 12 day tour along tropical coasts, over the island's mountain ranges and return to Noumea. Will be riding up to about 60km per day for 6 of the 12 days and two of the days are hilly riding so a reasonable level of riding fitness needed. But we won't need to be loaded to the hilt with gear as mostly staying at gites and homestay along the way so no need to carry tents and food for an army. The tour will include the West and East coasts, a surf camp, kayaking, Kanak culture, and exploring a new route across the ranges in the northern part of the island. Will share costs for a van & trailer transits, van and trailer backup, and get better deals on accommodation and fares etc. See more on New Caledonia at http://en.visitnewcaledonia.com/?c=1405987049

If you are interested and want to hear more then let me know ASAP as about to start making bookings - email at bruce@bike-it.com.au or call . Please pass on to others who you think may be interested!
Cheers
