Want to move house, save money, save the planet and stay fit all in one hit? Then consider moving house by bike. Sydney Morning Herald, July 19, 2011

It happens elsewhere – mostly in countries where people have fewer choices and can’t afford the luxury of a vehicle, never mind a removalist. But if you don’t have too many possessions and aren’t moving very far, it may just be doable.
It’s been done before in Australia. In 2009, Melbourne community group, Transition Darebin, whose motto is “ready and resilient”, tested out the viability of the 2-wheel move. The group is part of the international Transition Network.

“The Transition Network helps communities make the transition from a high-energy intensive lifestyle to beyond climate change and peak oil,” says Jos Tait of Transition Darebin. “It’s about how to minimise our carbon footprint and live in a sustainable way.”
For the past two years, the group has been helping re-skill the Darebin community, north of Melbourne, for a future without cheap energy and fuel. As part of the process, they decided to test out the idea of a Bike Movers service.
