The Squeaky Wheel and City of Melbourne present as part of the Sustainable Living Festival
Look.Stop.Swap Ride #2
WHAT: Ride a blue bike and Look.Stop.Swap with us! The Squeaky Wheel is taking you out on a FREE guided bicycle tour through the City of Melbourne to five of the most exciting Look.Stop.Swap Program destinations. We get you on a Melbourne Bike Share bike, show you how to navigate the city traffic safely and you get to experience how much fun sustainable living can be!
Start and finish of the ride is the Melbourne Bike Share station at Federation Square (next to Melbourne Visitor Centre). You'll be provided with a MBS bike + helmet for the duration of the tour, so please let us know if you bring your own gear and send Ben an email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
'Sharing Ideas on Sustainability'- initiated by the City of
Melbourne and created by the Three
crew - is a two-week program of events and activities as part of
the Sustainable Living Festival: Participating retailers and cafes
are banding together from February 8-23 to try out new ideas for
living and working sustainably in the city. The exchanges range from
literal swaps (ie: bring an egg, get a muffin!) to sharing ideas in
workshops and/or teaming up with other local sustainable businesses
and social enterprises. Stay tuned to these pages to find out about our tour destinations.

We ride at a leisure pace for 2.5 hrs through the inner city. This ride is also perfect if you want to learn more about riding in city traffic, our accredited Austcycle trainers will be happy to assist you with any questions and concerns you might have. During the ride you'll be covered by Cycling Australia insurance. If you want to bring your small family members along, please sign up to one of our Look.Stop.Watch Family Tours (15 Feb 3pm and 16 Feb 10am), where we're staying on quiet streets and off road paths for most of the time.
