TROPFEST - This Sunday (7 Dec)
First up, a HUGE, heartfelt thanks to everyone that's participated in the record-breaking success of Bike Valet Parking in the past two months. More below.

We're calling out again for BVP volunteers for this Sunday's TROPFEST in Centennial Park. We're going for a new record. We've primed Centennial Parklands to promote "Bike is Best" for TROPFEST, so we're expecting a lot of love at the corral. Please let us know if you can chip in a few hours before you enjoy one Sydney's most iconic experiences - funny flicks under the stars with friends and getting to ride there and back. Brilliant. BVP at Tropfest is easy and super fun - lots of familiar smiles, friends, colour.. It's a simple way to be part of effective change.

Tropfest is BVP's greatest success story. Last year, we pleaded with Centennial Parklands to give us a go. They were blown away by the response. On the night, we had to call in extra bike racking three times!! This year, they are really excited about getting to show off how many car trips they will have saved. Converted in one deployment. Thanks to our volleys! Score!

Email us if you can volunteer at this Sunday's Tropfest

And a huge thanks to everyone who volunteered for BVP at Sydney Rides the Night (Lady Macquarie's Chair - 25Oct). We - well, you! - valet parked a record 594 bikes (...while the Prez was swanning it in Japan [sheepish grin]. Yes, that's me working hard at 0:35).

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for being part of this success. You are giving people direct experience and you are assisting with BIKESydney's other campaigning efforts by showing bikes in large numbers. People really want to be able to ride. (Who'd have thought...!)

Dinner and Comedy is on us. We'll be in touch with you directly.

Don't forget:   Join our Comms Team meeting next week.

And did we say THANK YOU?
