Thanks so much to Marcela Guerrero Casas, the unassuming activist behind World Naked Bike Ride (CT), who’s now rounding up the bicycle clans to take it further. So let’s move Cape Town from rhetoric to reality, with an evening for bike-minded people to connect….
DATE & TIME: Monday 28th MAY 2012, 18h30 onwards (Talks at 19.00pm)
VENUE: The Josephine Mill, Newlands, Cape Town
BRING An open mind, a good attitude, some friends

A group of bicycle lovers and supporters will lead the conversation on how we nurture Cape Town’s growing cycling culture. Although in Cape Town there’re a great many citizen initiatives – like Moonlight Mass, ByBike, Cape Town Bike Polo, Camissa Bicycles, Cape Town Bicycle Map, Winelands Bicycle Map, Global Wheeling Foundation, BEN, Velokhaya – the Life Cycling Academy, Urbancyclist, World Naked Bike Ride….and more… – the city is a long way from being the cycling-friendly haven it would like to (and claims to) be…
Citizens around the world are taking over the streets on their bicycles, and securing a safe and comfortable environment in which to commute and enjoy their cities. So how do we make it happen here, and what are we doing already?
Bring your story, your toys and your ideas to share with the rest of the cycling and wanabee cycling community! This is our opportunity as citizens to help shape a future Cape Town resplendent with bike routes, bike parking, bike events, bike cafes, a strong bike movement and a healthier safer environment where all communities can take to the streets and connect.
The evening will start with a short presentation and will be followed by an open forum for everyone to present existing projects and/or ideas. We’ll end with a chance to capture current and future projects and talk to each other, over a drink, about cycling in Cape Town.
About green drinks: monthly casual, friendly social gathering at the Josephine Mill to share ideas for sustainability and conscious living. All are invited to come together as a community to share knowledge, skills, hope and enthusiasm.
