With one giant leap over a last heritage wall hurdle the Outer Harbor Greenway route, 14 years in the making, is moments away from opening! That is worth celebrating. Bring family, friends and party vibe to Adelaide Bike Fest 2019 and join in the day’s roaming activities.
Meet at Bowden Plant 4 around 11am for an early lunch and 2-for-1 coffee from Nutrition Republic. At 12pm we will hold an opening with community and official guests, before setting off on a festive community ride along the Greenway at 12:15pm. Bring your party vibe, tunes and smiles. We hope to have local Mayors, and elected parliamentarians join us.
The ride ends at the Woodville Town Hall, an elegant and beautiful theatre recently restored. At 1:30pm a screening of MOTHERLOAD will begin; a crowdsourced documentary about living by bike and the amazing adaptability of the cargo bike. http://motherloadmovie.com/welcome#trailer-section
A Cargo Bike Show & Shine and Test Track Loop open pre and post movie will also entertain. Bring your cargo bike and join in or take the chance to try one on the test ride loop track.
Come one. Come all. Let’s celebrate!!!
As a community this is also an opportunity to thank the Government of South Australia, City Of Charles Sturt and City of Port Adelaide Enfield for their collaboration in funding, planning and delivering this quality infrastructure project.
All ages and all bikes welcome. Kid friendly ride and movie. Families can stop along the way if needed at the newly refurbished MJ McInerney Reserve for a refresh and play.
The event is timed as a lead up to the Australian Walking and Cycling Conference in Port Adelaide on October 24 – 25 2019. http://www.walkingandcycling.com.au/
Members of the original Port BUG/BISA group that scouted the potential Outer Harbour Greenway route in 2005 will also be about to chat about this incredible project.
