the Frankston BUG is seeking your support.
The Frankston Council has this morning replaced a single car park with bike racks for 10 bikes, as part of a 1 month trial to determine if it will roll out the program to other locations in Frankston - or remove the bike parking all together. It is a case of use it or lose it.
The bike parking facility is located out the front of Rocotillos, at 36 Wells St. http://www.truelocal.com.au/business/ro ... /frankston and is approx 200m from the corner of the Nepean Highway and Wells st.
The pro car lobby in Frankston is very strong - and so the Frankston BUG is asking all cyclists in, or who visits Frankston, to use the facility - so that we can ensure that cycling in Frankston continues grow as a socially acceptable form of transport for everybody. I know it is a long struggle - particularly in Frankston - but this is one initiative that really deserves our support!
Whilst I am not associated in anyway with Rocotillos - i can tell you that it is one of only two places i would recommend for breakfast in Frankston (the other is Great Flavours in Playne St).....i really must get around to doing those reviews of cycling destinations that serve good coffee and food!......hope to see you there soon!Ti-Rider
