MEDIA RELEASE, 7 FEB 2018: The car free city centre is coming to Bendigo on 14 February so lets #BikeTheBaton!

When the Queen’s Baton Relay comes to town on Wednesday 14 February and the city centre is closed to cars, what is your plan for getting to work or school? Bike Bendigo is encouraging residents to beat the traffic and parking woes and to #BikeTheBaton.

Bike Bendigo President Jac Torres-Gomez said ‘This will be one of the best opportunities you will get to walk or ride the city centre without cars and get a glimpse of what a bike friendly city feels like.

The most frequent concern we hear from people is they would like to ride more but don’t like riding with cars’

‘With much of the city centre closed to traffic, we’ve identified three ‘dream rides’ where you can ride along trails to the city centre then simply enjoy riding car free in the city centre.’

Residents who ride along the Spring Gully Trail, the O’Keefe Rail Trail and the northern side of the Bendigo Creek Trail will be able to ride to the car free city centre almost entirely without riding in traffic.’ Said Ms Torres-Gomez

So keep calm and #Bikethebaton!

Residents should visit the City of Greater Bendigo and official Queen’s Baton Relay websites for official information regarding road closures.

The #BikeTheBaton map will be available on Bike Bendigo’s Facebook page and www.bikebendigo.com

It will be an improvement. I guess the engineering of a new archway cut through and associated bridging was too costly.

Lots of people were out and about walking and riding and they all seemed very happy. Still many people about town - just without noisy cars everywhere driving and parked.

A great briefing session by the Bike Bendigo executive this morning delivered to our local MPs / officers Maree Edwards MP and Jacinta Allan regarding Bike Bendigo’s achievable and transformational vision for a near future Bendigo where most people can ride pretty much everywhere in comfort and safety to get where they need to go. Improving health outcomes and reducing recurrent transport and health costs.

Then it was off to work on the bikes for the three of us. Can’t wait until we are riding in protected bike lanes separated from motor vehicle traffic!
