    Join the foggy fun as we cycle the mist-shrouded city... you've never seen Melbourne look so surreal. But because the weather is fickle, we can't set a date. So you need to email or SMS your mobile phone number to [email protected] / 0439 88 00 93 to register. When THICK FOG is forecast in the next day or two, you will be sent an SMS giving the time (night) & place (CBD) for the ride start.

    C4S's 2005 ride saw 10 individuals ride 4500km to deliver a sustainabilty message to over 3000 school students and the broader community. The 2006 ride will start mid-August 2006 in Sydney and end in Hobart in December. And they're looking for lots of people to get involved in lots of different ways. Check it out.

    Pedal-Powered Goddess -author unknown - from Vancouver, BC-
    ---------------------
    There's a pedal-powered goddess in the sky
    And she turns the milky-way between her thighs
    She's the pedal-powered goddess and she doesn't wear a bodice,
    She's the pedal-powered goddess in the sky

    There's a pedal-powered goddess in the stars
    In the cosmos there's no lasting place for cars
    So the goddess doesn't drive one and her energy's a live one
    And there are no fossils burning in her arse

    There's a pedal-powered goddess on the way
    And we pedal by her power every day
    Through the road rage and pollution, we will make a velorution
    By the goddess we will find a better way

    (Sung at the Bike Fun Winter Solstice Ride, under the glow of Westgate
    Bridge.)
