Beer, Bikes and History
Do you remember the Woolstore before it became fancy units?
Are you interested in the history of the Newstead/ New Farm/ Teneriffe area?
Do you love retro and vintage clothing?
Would you like to taste beer from a micro brewery?
Are you a local wanting to see behind the scenes of your own suburb?

If you answer yes to any one of these (and even if you don't) you will want to check out the State Library's Pedal Power event, Retro Rides.
