The long-running campaign to revitalise the Sydney Road shopping strip and make it safer for bikes, tram passengers and pedestrians continues to roll along, with a community bike ride along the street this weekend.
The battle has been afoot for years, with local traders continuing to resist the changes that will save their livelihood, and keep their customers safe on the street.
Revitalise Sydney Road will join Moreland BUG, Brunswick Police Bike Patrol and hundreds of Morelanders for a community bike ride down Sydney Rd to Princes Park this Sunday.
The organisers—Revitalise Sydney Road, and the Moreland BUG—want hundreds of riders to make the trip this Sunday from Bridges Reserve in Coburg to Princes Park in Parkville.
The family-friendly event will be at a leisurely pace and cargo bikes, kids, trailers, all others bikes welcome.
Victoria Police are providing an escort with Brunswick Bike Patrol and traffic management for the ride.
The welcome and safety briefing is at 11:00-11:15 and the ride is from 11:15-11:45.SEE THE EVENT DETAILS
