Friday is the most relaxed day of the work week for most of us, so I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a bike ride and free stuff.
In 2011 Andy White aka cycling personality Fyxomatosis gathered together cyclists from all over Melbourne to create a new World Record for the most bike share bikes in one place at the one time.
In 2012 Cheryl Lin from Business Chic and I joined the group in another world record attempt at En Masse. So we didn’t reach a higher number this year but we did grab our free Melbourne Bike Share bike, pedal our way to uber-sustainable cafe Silo by Joost and enjoyed free coffees (Cheryl was very jittery after drinking numerous coffees in the quest to win a Giant Via bike!), a filling egg sandwich and pork sandwich between the two of us, muffin and a chat with Melbourne’s cycling community.
If you missed En Masse this year then look out for event details in 2013. You can also see more bike goodness from Fyxomatosis at the inaugural Australian Custom Bicycle Show coming up on 1 and 2 December at 167 Gladstone St, South Melbourne.
