Australia's Cycling Promotion Fund at the Bicycling Australia Show

Take a Tour of the Show, or attend a Women and Cycling seminar

Women's interests covered at the biggest Australian show of the year.

 

The Bicycling Australia show takes place on 14th and 15th October, in the Royal Exhibition in Carlton, Melbourne. It is the largest cycling show in Australia and provides the general public with a chance to browse, touch, try and even buy the products which are available now and which are due to be released in 2007. 

Entry to the show is $15, $10 concession/kids over 10, or $20 for families. Kids under 10 get in free. There is even valet bike parking (gold coin donation). The show runs from late morning until evening each day.

For the first time, in association with Sport and Recreation Victoria, the Cycling Promotion Fund will be  running Women's Guided Tours of the Show. The tours will be led by the very experienced Emma Ringer: a bike commuter, cycle tourer, and competitor in road, track and mountain biking from club to state championships.

Emma works in a bike shop and is a former journalist for Bicycling Australia, Mountain Biking Australia and Bicycling Trade magazines. The tours last an hour, include a drink and time for questions and discussion. They're on at 11am and 2pm both days, and cost $20 which also includes entry to the Show. 

Contact the CPF if you'd like to book in for a tour >  office@cyclingpromotion.com.au or call 03 9818 5400.

The CPF are also holding a seminar:

Saturday 14 October at 12pm Women and Cycling: Myths and Realities 

The seminar will feature a range of women ranging from a beginner through to an elite sporting cyclist who will share their experiences of cycling. Gain valuable tips including being safe on the roads, setting up your bike for comfort and finding great places to ride and people to ride with. The seminar is free with entry to the Show; bookings are not required.

Catherine James will be one of the speakers giving her fabulous story of when she first commuted into the city. If you haven't heard her tale, do yourself a favour and get to the seminar so that you can hear her story.
