Visiting The Bike Shed

When to visit

The Bike Shed is open Saturdays and Sundays 11am to 5pm

Please arrive before 3pm so you have time to fix your bike!

Public Holidays: We generally do not open on public holiday weekends, however this depends on available volunteers. Unless you have been informed otherwise, assume we won’t be there on public holiday weekends.

Safety

Extreme weather: We will not open the shed if the temperature is forecast to go over 37 degrees, or if exterme winds or rain are predicted. This is for everyone’s safety.

Shoes
You must wear closed shoes.
People whose feet are exposed will be asked to leave.
Steel capped boots are recommended if you have them. Bare feet, sandals and thongs are absolutely not allowed. Sharp, dangerous or heavy items are dropped every day and they might land on your feet.

Clothes
Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty and greasy. The shed is chaotic and dirty place with grease covered items being carried around, your clothes will almost certainly get grease on them.

Tools

Do not bring your own tools
Bringing your own tools to the shed is like taking your pet fish for a swim in the ocean; you will probably never see them again.
People quite rightly consider all tools they see at the shed to be sheds tools, including your tools.

Where are we located

We are near the southern entrance to CERES, just off the Merri Creek bike path.

Getting to CERES by bike:
The Merri Creek bike path runs along the edge of CERES. The BikeShed is at the gate closest to the Blyth St/Atherton Road bridge in Brunswick East.

Getting to CERES by public transport:
Take the Number 96 tram to East Brunswick from the city (from Bourke St, travelling up Nicholson St) all the way to the end of the line at the intersection of Blyth and Nicholson Streets. CERES is about a 5 minute walk from the tram stop. Turn right down Blyth St (which becomes Arthurton Rd) and take the second street on the left (Roberts St) – CERES is 100m up Roberts St on the right – you can’t miss it. Turn right at Lee Street and walk in.

Getting to CERES by car:
The main gate to CERES is on the corner of Roberts and Stewart Streets, Brunswick East, Victoria, 3057. Melways Map 30, B7 and on Google MapsCERES is a car free zone excepting deliveries, site vehicles and disabled access, CERES encourages people to consider transport alternatives such as car pooling, public transport or self propelled modes of transport where possible. If you are driving, please park in one of the car parks on Blyth St approaching the creek from Nicholson St; in the spaces at the Lee St entrance; or at the car park on site at the corner of Roberts and Stewart Streets.
