On Yer Bike initiative
A group of enthusiastic members from the U3A Yarra City ‘On Yer Bike” cycling group has developed a website that showcases Melbourne’s extensive network of bike paths.
The website currently describes some 39 rides around Melbourne and 10 rides in regional Victoria. The group, led by Ross Armstrong, has been cycling Melbourne’s bike paths for the past five years and the website is a compilation of their rides over this time. It is envisaged that more rides and information will be added to the website as these become available. It has been designed for use on mobile phones, laptops and tablets.
The website was created by the volunteer efforts of several members of the group and was funded through a State government grant administered by U3A Network Vic. It is a great example of seniors sharing their passion and skills with others.
