Beach Road News

In 2002, the Noble Park Velodrome was renamed in honour of Maurice Kirby for his contribution to cycling in Australia. The Velodrome was home to the Noble Park Dandenong Cycling Club as well as the Pedals Club which at its height, had over 50,000 members Australia wide. In this video, Maurice Kirby’s daughter Gayle speaks about his legacy and the injustice it would be to tear down this iconic piece of local history.
