Re: Bicycle parking at Ashfield 'Carnival of Cultures', 18 M

I was there for a little while around lunch, didn't spot any DHBC people but I did had a chat to some of the AshBUG people I ride with from time to time who were manning the valet bicycle parking. Was a pretty good local carnival IMO, don't think I'd been there since I was a kid.
