Bicycle Network Board Elections – candidates Jenica Brooke & Faith Hunter: Val and Faith are joined in the studio today by guest Jenica Brooke of Melbourne Commuter. We all share our bicycle moments before taking a look at some news including; the 2019 cycling participation results which show a decline in cycling across Australia, the opening of Quarry Park in Footscray this coming weekend and the Australian Walking and Cycling Conference coming up in Adelaide later this month. Hear more about it in this earlier podcast. Val fills us in on VACRO, the organisation behind our awesome sponsor, Second Chance Cycles.
Discussion turns to the 2019 Bicycle Network elections in which both Faith Hunter and our studio guest, Jenica Brooke are candidates. Two positions are open on the Board and each member has two votes. Faith and Jenica talk about what they think they can bring to the Board, the future they hope to see for Bicycle Network and its strengths as a cycling advocacy organisation. Voting is open from October 1-16 for all Bicycle network members. Read more about all the candidates here.
