Projects

Here is a sample of some Bicycles Create Change’s community bike projects.

See blog for other events and projects.

LEKI

My commuter bike – Leki.

She is a splendour to behold and a wonderful community cohesion tool.

Leki is a joy to ride….. here are some of our adventures:

Reiterations

For riding in MTB events, I have applied Leki’s colourful spirit to my singlespeed when riding in MTB races like:

Singlespeed World Championships 2016

Chicks in the  Sticks (MTB) 2016

Bayview Blast 2017

Nina, Zoe & Leki. Relocating from Melbourne to Brisbane (2014). Leki unpacked, redressed and off for her maiden exploration of her new community!
Nina, Claire, Miss Marple (in basket) & Leki. Wattle Festival (2013) Hurstbridge, VIC.
Leki & Nina (2016) Wynnym Halloween Parkrun. 5kms Community Fun Run. I rode Leki down and ran in full costume. Afterwards, Leki & I joined all the other participants for a social gathering. Great Fun!

 


LEKI AND THE OVA

For this project I collaborated with the indomitable Claire Tracey to create the roving performance/art bike Leki and The Ova.

This is a pedal-powered no-money, mobile, op shop.

Super great fun!!
