Put the pedal to the medal as Brunswick’s favorite bike festival returns to Barkly Square

Barkly Square is hosting its annual bike festival for all you cycling enthusiasts. For one day, this mini festival will celebrate all things on two wheels with free activities such as circus performances, live music and plenty of giveaways. 

Kicking off festivities, early risers (and riders) can tuck into bacon and egg rolls at the breakfast barbeque fundraiser for the Amy Gillet Foundation charity. Australian SBS Tour de France commentator Matthew Keenan will host a Q&A and discuss all things to do with bike safety in the riding community. 

There will be performances from the National Institute of Circus Arts, including unicyclist Simon Wright who will jump and juggle his way through the laneway. Barkly Square's resident cycle experts will conduct free safety bike checks and bicycle buffs can upgrade their bikes with the latest gadgets and gear at the Bicycle Market Place. 

Attendees can even live like cycling royalty by jumping up on the Tour De Barkly winners podium to capture the perfect GIF in the photo booth. 

Barkly Bikes is a free event located in the Barkly Square laneway, open to all from 9am until 3pm on Sunday 27 October 2019. For more information, visit the Barkly Bikes website.
