August’s Frocks Feature Ride and newsletter

Dear Frockers

This month’s Frocks Feature Ride is a trip down memory lane, literally, for me as we visit some of the neat cycling spots around Burnside. Many of these places predate the new wave of cycle infrastructure by 6+ decades. I remember riding my 20" Raleigh in Westburn Reserve with the gang, 50 years ago. Kids only, of course, no adults around in the good old days!

The park has a mini road network with road signs, roundabouts, stop junctions and so on for kids to practice their road safety cycling skills. No bike? Then bring trikes or scooters. There’s a small playground with slides, swings, seesaws and a roundabout and loos. Whoever is first there, please claim the picnic table!

The ride is just 5 km long on roads with generous cycle lanes but, if you feel you’re child is not up to it, please consider staying back at Westburn Reserve and letting them zoom around on their own terms.
