Alan Naber explores the first attempts at 2-wheeled travel; the disbelief and fascination of being able to balance on two wheels in the early 1800s, the development of faster bicycles in the mid-1800s and their impact on society at the time. Later, there is an explosion in cycling and adoption by the broader population, as bicycles became safer, cheaper and more practical. The story covers Britain, Europe and the USA. For Australia, the changes in urban, rural and life in the goldfields are discussed.

Tai Chi is a form of martial art developed from Chinese Taoist philosophy. Its gentle flow and graceful movements can also be used as a very good set of exercise. With constant practice, it can promote good health, relaxation, balance and stability. In this course, participants will be introduced to a short form of Wu style Tai Chi, with particular emphasis on movements promoting a stable body. It should be suitable for both young and seniors and no prior experience is assumed. The details of each movement will be explained. Then participants will learn with the instructor and practise together. The course is also suitable for those who have some prior Tai Chi experience and might like to extend their knowledge. Classes run Tuesday mornings and afternoons. Image by Antonika Chanel from Pixabay
