 Tomorrow, Tuesday 8th August, is census day, so it’s time to stand up and be counted, or rather, it’s time to ride your bike to work and be counted.

Question 45 “How did the person get to work on Tuesday, 8 August 2006?” is the all important question, with a bicycle box for you to mark in the approved fashion. I

n order to legitimately increase the number of cyclists riding to work tomorrow, here is a list of Sydney bike buses you could join,

1. Homebush to the City Bike Bus. Leaves Homebush station at 7am, with pickups at Strathfield, Burwood, Croydon, Ashfield, Summer Hill, Lewisham and Redfern. Contact Jan 0432 610 859 for more information.
