Cycling in Melbourne Australia
As posted in the Events Calendar here:
Our objective is to reform bicycle helmet laws in Australia and New Zealand, to remove the discouragement of cycling they cause.
The key to getting more people to ride bikes is to make it as attractive as possible. Dangerising cycling and blaming the victims of poor road infrastructure and car-centric road culture has the opposite effect.
The more people who ride, the faster governments will improve roads for cycling. In turn, as the roads are improved, more people ride. This virtuous circle needs to be encouraged, not discouraged by making it less attractive and less convenient to cycle.
By signing up to support Law Reform on our home page, you add your voice to the campaign. When we have enough supporters the law will fall, and Australia and New Zealand will rejoin the rest of the world.

Skeptical? Do you think cycling is actually dangerous? Do you think helmets are worth a damn? Think again. It's dumb authoritarian propaganda covering up for making policy on the basis of opinion polls rather than science. The entire story is a litany of heinous disregard for safety, cyclists, personal freedom, and truth. It should boil your blood.
Tired of this unjustified, nannying crap? Sick of having your safety compromised by dickwad pollies discouraging cycling and hence safety in numbers by pushing the myth that cycling is more dangerous than walking? Or maybe you've just had enough collecting unpaid helmet fines.
Enough is enough, dammit.
Time to rejoin the rest of the world, and leave this pointless idiocy behind.
