Festival of Everyday Riding

The Festival of Everyday Riding is a celebration of all things bike, presented by the City Of Port Phillip.

The City of Port Phillip is committed to a sustainable future, which includes making sustainable travel options accessible in our local community. A key focus of Council’s Move, Connect, Live – Integrated Transport Strategy 2018-28 is an increase in bike riding, with one of the major actions being the roll-out of a network of dedicated and continuous protected bike corridors to create safer routes for all ages and abilities. This included an upgrade of the bike corridor on Moray Street in South Melbourne, which forms the key link between the CBD and Albert Park, which saw brand new separated bike lanes and the first ever Victorian protected roundabouts introduced recently.
