Lysterfield Park in Victoria launches in October

To celebrate the completion of work at Lysterfield Park (in metropolitan Melbourne) the Victorian Government is planning a community event to ‘launch’ the project.

To emphasise the community legacy of the project, plans for the launch include a community bike ride and picnic / barbecue. People will be invited to meet at the Horswood Road carpark. Riders will then ride through a banner and be invited to use the upgraded trails before returning to the lake area for lunch and the chance to meet Karak the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games mascot. Elite riders will be invited to trial the competition course.

A small media event will be built into the day, with interviews with spokespeople for the project and cyclists, footage of the elite riders on the course; the breaking of the banner and Karak meeting children.

The launch is set for Sunday 22 October. A 10.30 meet time has been suggested, with the cycle commencing at 11am. Lunch will run from 12noon.
