What: 'magical mystery bike tour & pub crawl'
Scenic view point 1 - new secure neighbourhood bicycle-parking in the form of a pink car, comprising of four separate cabins, each with room for one cargo bike


Scenic view point 2 & 3' - cycling & pedestrian sections of Bryggebroen, the new bridge over the harbour, that goes from the Vesterbro neighbourhood to Iceland Quay, and amazingly caters for almost 10,000 cyclists a day

In a nutshell: "Australia! our bikes are made for cycling...& that's just what they'll do...one of these days our 'bikes' are gonna 'bike' all over you!"
