Footscray Road and Yackandandah Rail Trail: Val and Faith kick off the show with the bike moments: a ride along the new section of the MTM Rail Trail from Yackandandah to Beechworth and joy sparked by a reminder of an old school component maker.
We take a look at the statement from the Victorian Government on the death of Angus Collins on the Footscray Road protected shared path which you can read here, and recommend you read John Symon’s from Bike West‘s article on safe system design) and the shortcomings in its adoption in Victoria.
We take a look at the Brunswick LXRP Project and the opportunities and challenges this will provide. Initial local consultation is underway here with more consultation to come from the LXRP themselves.
And finally a reminder about some local events: the important Critical Mass Ride Footscray edition to protest the lack of safe routes in the west of Melbourne is coming up this Friday February 24th and on Sunday March 5th the Vintage Cycling Club are hosting a Lazy Sunday Ride.
