What?

An extravaganza of bike showing, swapping, selling and haggling, the likes of which Brisbane had never seen before. Pushies Galore was an event for all cyclists to buy, sell, swap and drool over bikes. Yes, this is the event you had been asking for. For a gold coin attendees were granted access to cycling wonderland.

When?

It happened on Sunday 17 July 2011.

Where?

Holland Park Bowls Club, Abbotsleigh Street, Holland Park.

Why?

Because bikes are good for you, bowls clubs are wonderful places and we don’t get enough chances to come together as a community.
