It was such a busy event that photos were forgotten! Three sessions were run by People on Bicycles on riding and using eBikes and a variety of bikes were tried out by the participants. Four eBike vendors were also in attendance to let anyone have a go on a bike. It was hot and sticky but everyone seemed to enjoy getting up close and personal with an elusive eBike.

Hi Shannon, a report on how to get 'More bicycle riding, more often in Queensland' recommends that we "increase exposure to e-bikes as a 'new reason' (i.e. tech focused)" as a way to get more people riding. This event is that idea in practice! Sorry I didn't score it higher but I has already awarded you the activity points for your 'Get on Your (e)Bike!' post. For bonus points we would love to know what you would do differently and a bit of info on who attended - numbers, type of rider etc.

People on Bicycles attended as part of a successful Bike Week Grant from WestCycle/DoT. There were 15 participants in the sessions and probably another 25 walking by having a look and a chat. It was so sticky and hot that I was surprised there were that many people in attendance!

Well that upped the points - I've added 40 activity points for applying for a grant.
