A bike ride will be led from Civic to the Arboretum, leaving at 6:00 pm from City Bus Station Platform 11, outside the Melbourne Building. For those needing some help up the hill, a free ACTION bus, chartered from Civic is stopping to pick up bike riders at the foot of the hill, at the Lindsay Pryor carpark on Barren Joey Drive (site of a new Park and Pedal facility) at 6.40pm. (The charter bus leaves Civic at 6:30 pm, also from City Bus Station Platform 11).
Everyone who rides part or all the way or uses the ACTION bus will go into the exclusive draw for the World Environment Day Dinner’s Sustainable Transport Raffle, with first prize being a Perpetual Motion IV electric bike from Switched on Cycles valued at $2,000.
Bus riders will be issued raffle tickets on the bus while bike riders who ride all the way will be issued tickets by the ride leader (or if they ride on their on, on presentation of their (slightly sweaty) bike helmets). Bus riders will also be the first in the doors at the Arboretum, which will only open with the arrival of the charter bus at approximately 6:45 pm.
