FAREWELL TO OUR CREMORNE WAREHOUSE
After 5 fabulous years, we have moved out of our workshop space at Cremorne and are on the hunt for our new home!! In the mean time, we will be operating out of our amazing sponsor’s premises, Visa Global Logistics Melbourne from February 2019, once a month. We will still be accepting bikes, bike parts & tools, however no workshop will be in operation until we find a new space.
Enormous thanks to all our volunteers, sponsors & partners for sticking with us throughout the years, we couldn’t have done it without you!
