Dear PortBUG Friends,
As you may have gathered, we are – after 14 years – now very close to completion of the 13km Outer Harbor Greenway (connecting the Adelaide CBD & ParklandS Pathways to the Port Adelaide Waterfront). Sources tell us that the bikeway route will definitely be open by the end of September!
PortBUG and partner organisations are therefore very pleased to invite everyone to BikeFest: an Opening Celebration & Group Ride for the new Greenway (Plant 4 at Bowden) followed by the Adelaide premiere of MOTHERLOAD, the world’s first feature-length cargobike documentary (Woodville Town Hall). We hope to have a CargoBike ‘Show & Shine’, bike try-out opportunities, popcorn, refreshments & children’s activities. All activities and the film screening ARE FREE courtesy of the City of Charles Sturt! Printable Poster here.
Adelaide has a long association with the growth of the international cargo bike movement with the development of the ‘Ho Chi Minh’ GreenMachine & the Adelaide Longbike back in the 1970s/80s – a history we can all be very proud of!
So please join us on Sunday 13th October for the Opening Celebrations & Group Ride (starting 11am, Plant 4, Bowden) and the MOTHERLOAD film screening & fun at Woodville Town Hall afterwards. All details on the yellow poster & at https://www.facebook.com/events/2360144224257536/
