Thanks Gus, a pdf version would be good.  I want to extract the text from some of the articles to use elsewhere, and I couldn't work out how to do it from the on-line magazine.

Thanks Mark. It'll be on the BI site and emailed out to members in the next day or so as a PDF. That will be easier for you Heather.

Well done on the latest Pedal Update! Once I worked out how to navigate the on-line pages, I found I read more of it than I did the paper version.

You're receiving this because you are in the Bicycle Institute (BI) group at Adelaide Cyclists.

This Wednesday night is our AGM. The official business of the evening will only take a short while and after that we would like to open the floor to talk about the state of cycling in SA and hear your views - financial member or not. We welcome everyone to come along.

Special guest will me BI member and Greens MLC Mark Parnell who is currently seeking feedback from cyclists to take to an upperhouse debate.

We also encourage you to attend the opening of the new Frome St bikeway on Wednesday morning from 8am. As you may know has received a lot of criticism from some members of council and community but we believe in its importance as we made made submissions on its design.

I hope to see as many of you there on Wednesday morning at that night at the Conservation Council, Level 1, 157 Franklin Street, Adelaide starting at 7.00pm.

The Bicycle Institute made a feedback submission on behalf of our members to the Adelaide City Council on their plans for second stage of the Frome Street Bikeway. Thanks to committee members, especially Fay and Ian, for their work.

You can download and read the document here.

The council are seeking feedback on Stage three. Do you have an opinion? Let us know.

There are still some tables free for the Bicycle Institute 'Wheels of Fortune' quiz night this Friday at the Community Bike Workshop, Plympton.

$15 a head. Form a team of 8 (or so) and book in ASAP. The Bicycle Institute advocates for better and safer cycling in SA.

We'd love to see you there.
