O-Week success

img_21552Thanks to all those who’ve helped out at O-week (esp. Paul, David and Lisa). Its an exciting time for cycling on campus as there is a growing interest in all things bikes as well as other transport alternatives with the opening of the new train line. We’ve spoken to many exchange students this week who have expressed a difficulty in finding a cheap bikes to use while at uni. We hope to fix this problem by setting up an section on this website where students can post ads to buy and sell bikes. If you are looking to get a bike for free or one to repair for yourself, there are number of bicycle recycling projects run across Sydney. For a list of bike co-ops go to: http://www.bicyclerecycling.com/

Btw: you can now find us on facebook and remember to come to the inter-university bike clubs Bikes, Beach & BBQ ride to Bronte beach this Sunday afternoon.
