Cycling in Melbourne Australia
Bicycle Network Victoria are organising a rally to protest about the State Governments extreme budget cuts to cycling infrastructre. It would be great to see a huge crowd of cyclists show up. For more information go to this link.
Spread the word.
Check out facebook (if you're on it). There's quite a few 'events' on there, including rides in from various directions. (And/or post in here).
So, who went? What did you think?
Despite the weather (actual, but also predicted which told the story far worse), I was very impressed with the turnout. Well done one and all.
It was fantastic to see the turn out considering the weather. I got there about on time and got foot path space and didn't notice how it filled up behind until I turned around halfway through and saw the whole intersection full!
From a social, economic and environmental point of view it's crazy not to encourage and support cycling. As pointed out at the rally the benefits in health and congestion are huge, plus I just feel great after a ride.
Good stuff people, keep up the work and momentum. Noting ventured, nothing gained.
