Cr Adrian Schrinner, Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP and LNP State Candidate for Chatsworth Steve Minnikin had ther mobile office at the corner of Scrub Rd and Greendale Way today.

I cycled over to say hi and had a chat to Ross about bikes and cycling. We talked about different bike brands, Carina Cycles, Pushies Galore, Bicycle Revolution and different attitudes towards cycling. I discovered Ross is currently restoring a bicycle that is about fifty years old.

I’m quite a fan of mobile offices and local reps talking with locals in an informal setting. The location of this one was outside the proposed shopping centre development which I wonder if it, in this retail and financial climate, will actually go ahead.
