Hello from Sydney,
Sorry about this but i'm a bit of an outsider looking in.
Up here we get a fair bit of publicity on behalf of Bike Victoria, i occasionally read and hear about them saying a lot of stuff, often even speaking on behalf of NSW advocates.
They cop a fair bit of criticism up here, mainly about their support of vulnerable road users (cyclists) getting penalised as much as motorists (non vulnerable road users) for flirting with the road rules. I often get the feeling that the general cycling public up here percieves Bicycle Victoria as a non pro cycling institution.
Somebody on Sydney Cyclist made a comment that got me wondering...
"Bicycle Victoria is partly funded by the Victorian govt and has become a govt mouthpiece.
What is the point of having a cyclist organisation then?"
Thought i'd hear it straight from the horses mouth.
Is what this person said true?
What do the cyclists of Victoria think about this?
