Cycling in Sydney Australia
Apparently it is NSW Bike Week. http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/usingroads/events/bikeweek/index.html
Has anyone seen any adverts, posters or whatever to promote this event? I certainly haven't and only found this out by accident about a few minutes ago. I'm pretty sure that if more people knew about this then it would have got a mention on CS by now.
According to the website "NSW Bike Week is a state-wide NSW Government initiative that raises the profile of cycling..." I wonder how they're planning on raising the profile of cycling with an event like NSW Bike Week if no-one knows about it.
(or have I just missed all the advertising somehow?)
There are a few events planned over the next few weeks (sydney cycle challenge, ride to work day etc.) that are getting a little bit of publicity but I didn't see anything in the run up to this week and so far have seen nothing promoting the currently occuring NSW Bike Week.
Cakes and loot*! Cakes and loot*! Cakes and loot*! Yay!
I found out via facebook, forgot and was then nicely surprised this am.
It was a Mosman council thing I think.
*Only those reflective ankle things, but they are free so, yay!
Why would the rta care
Because they are dedicated professionals.
Oh, hang on, must have slipped into a parallel universe for a second.
