Why must it rain on the annual Ride to Work Day? It just doesn't seem fair. It rained last year, and with drizzle this morning and storms forecast for this afternoon, this year's event was a bit washed out, too.

Despite the weather, dedicated museum staff peddled in and enjoyed the breakfast. There were breakfasts organised all over Melbourne - did you attend one?

In late August, Melbourne Museum became the 50th docking site of the Melbourne Bike Share Scheme. There is now a flock of bright blue bikes parked on the plaza's west end near Rathdowne Street.

Demand for the bikes is expected from Carlton residents and tourists visiting the museum and we'll watch with interest to see how they're being used.

Coincidentally the docking station was installed within a week of the launch of our staff bike fleet. It's great to see the rise of bicycles as shared public transport, especially here in Melbourne where the bike paths are good and getting better.   

Have you used a blue Bike Share Scheme bike to visit the museum?
