10 April – That community feel

Download the mp3

This week Bikelove enjoys the community feel and small quiet back streets of Surry Hills.  We jumped on board the Ride Sydney iniative and trawled the many garage sales by bicycle.  This is the second year for a coordinated garage sale in Sydney but this year it’s gone national!  I for one will definitely be looking forward to next year!
