In addition to our latest batch of bike news, please read this important Bicycle Victoria information + links concerning Commonwealth Games issues that will affect cyclists in Melbourne:

Riding around during the Commonwealth Games
The good news about the Games is that many people will have a good time and, when the event is over, we will have two new places to ride:

the mountain bike course out at Lysterfield
a handy bridge from the MCG to the Yarra

Over the period of the Games, however, you may find that it will be more inconvenient to ride your bike. The organisers have asked you to be patient with the disruption and cooperative those managing the traffic and security during the Games. We support this request as we make the same request of others when we run a bike ride. (further information in link)
