​​Free smoothie anyone?

Head down to the Norman Creek Bikeway at Greenslopes on Saturday 17 March and you can pedal your own smoothie! Cycling Brisbane, Brisbane City Council's program to encourage people to ride more often, is running its first In Your Neighbourhood event.  Bring your bike for a free safety check, and find out more about bike routes in the local area. You can also try an electric bike and learn more about the events and workshops Cycling Brisbane runs. There will also be a guest appearance from Active School Travel’s very own Ryder. Click here for full details on how to get your free smoothie at Norman Creek Bikeway (beside the Monkey Bar cafe and playground alongside Baron Street) from 8-11 am on Saturday 17 March.

Further information regarding the Council’s program can be found at: 

Walk - Leave the car at home and walk your kids to school. If you live too far away, drive part of the way and walk the rest. We call that “Park and Stride”.
Carpool - Find a friend and carpool to school. It’s an easy way to save money and time. Talk to other parents in your child’s class or street to see who is going your way.
Cycle - Ride with your children to school. It’s legal to ride on the footpath and remember to always have your helmet secured.
