Make your voice heard on the proposal to improve Inkerman St, East St Kilda. We like Option A for the protected bike lanes, more trees, and extra safe crossings for people walking. Please fill in the survey here: The consultation closes on 7th December #cycling #SafeInkerman #melbourne #naarm #BikeLanes

#Melbourne #Naarm people, where would you go in person to buy #Muppets themed merchandise?

My office holiday gift exchange recipient has left it too late to provide gift ideas in time for me to order online.

Since I often see them wearing a comfy hoodie covered in muppets during remote meetings, and don't otherwise know much about them, they're going to receive a muppet-themed gift.

According to Phil: The current bike lanes put you at risk of being driven into or doored. There is so much room here to put in proper protected bike lanes to make it safe, I don't understand why this hasn't happened. It connects to the Bay Trail and Albert Park, it would be a great connection if it was made safe. #cycling #melbourne #naarm #BikeLane

“Sick of being stuck in traffic? Hire or test ride an e-bike today.” Says the board outside Velo Cycles.

We have definitely noticed more e-bikes around especially reaching into the northern suburbs of #Merribek. Now we we need the protected cycling lanes to ensure a safe cycling environment.

Do you travel on Inkerman St? Or are you hoping that the City of Port Phillip will take effective, local action on climate change?
70% of locals say that they'd consider cycling if there were safe cycle lanes. Ask for protected bike lanes on Inkerman by filling in this survey.

BIKESPOT project is on once again! You can mark the map where you feel unsafe or safe riding your bike. Port Phillip Bicycle Users Group (and other advocacy groups) uses this data to inform our advocacy work, so it's really appreciated if you can participate. #cycling #melbourne #naarm #BikeLanes @fedibikes @ajsadauskas

#Naarm aka #Melbourne's #YarraRiver aka #Birrarung is often derided as "the river that flows upside-down" due to its strong muddy colour. But once upon a time, this ancient river ran fresh & clear. Today, the Yarra remains a viable and important habitat for dozens of native species, as humans work to undo centuries of damage.

Guest: Harry Saddler,

It’s a busy night for #cycling and #activetransport at #MerribekCouncil meeting tonight: 4 items.

#BikeLanes Inkerman St, St Kilda, is Port Phillip's most dangerous road, known as a BLACK STRETCH, with 33 crashes in the last 5 years. Council is considering the much-postponed bike lane this Wednesday. You can support the bike lane by writing to mayor Heather Cunsolo or by coming along to Council 6.30pm Wed 18th October, St Kilda Town Hall or online (register by 4pm Wednesday). More info

I grew up in Collingwood and cycled there for 10yrs. Johnston St is the obvious best route for a protected bicycle lane.

There are very few east-west cycle routes in Melbourne and
Johnston St intersects with a lot of existing and well used north-south cycling routes.

Adding protected bike lanes to Jonhston St would provide a great extension of the existing bicycle network.

#naarm #Melbourne #cycling #8to80 #bicycle #Micromobility #BikeLanes

🚧 Build kerbside protected bike lanes on Johnston St from Kew to Carlton!
