Handpicked is our special little event on Friday 12 July. A bit of a lead-in to the Pushies Galore weekend. Beers by Mountain Goat, woodfired pizza and bike chat will make for a good Friday night. Come and listen to vintage bike expert Warren Meade, Melbourne, urban planner Martin Reason and some fine framebuilders talk.

It’ll be bit like our Frames launch last year. Except you’ll actually get to ask questions this time.

If you’re one of the southern folks thinking about booking a trip to come to Pushies, make sure you’re up for Friday night. On the evening of 12 July, the Holland Park Bowls Club will host a little event to kick off the Pushies Galore weekend in style. We’re dubbing it Handpicked.

The night will feature a selection of stunning bikes and entertaining guests such as vintage bike aficionado Warren Meade. Add woodfired pizzas and some special beers from Mountain Goat Brewery.

This will be an opportunity learn the stories behind some unique bikes. One of these will be a 1927 Malvern Star ridden by Sir Hubert Opperman. He rode this particular bike on several motor pace races and distance record attempts. It’s a special bike, having been ridden by a special rider.

Added to the mix will be some Queensland bike history – both old and new. Come along on Friday 12 July from 6pm to talk restorations, decals and patina.
