Equipment and On Road Behaviour, Laws and Rules. Cycling Promotion and Advocacy
i missed HB's speech but it was still pretty big when i got there. good to see a strong crowd in the bad weather. i think i spotted Ted Faillieu peering out of his office window nervously
Good speech, cheerful crowd considering the weather. I was there on foot due to a puncture earlier and in my office wear, but a least I was wearing my yellow spray jacket
Edit: Some pics - I was there pretty early, so the crowd hadn't built up yet..

Rule 5'd. Worth it.
Great turnout in the conditions, best HB speech ever... I'll see if any of the phone pics came out later, I'm off to bed.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

There was one interesting chap that had sunnies a reflector and shades of blue!
You could tell he wasnt a cyclist!
Some coverage from Fairfax.
Merida 903 from the LBS; Diesel engine
Rode in with the GLW and the folk from Darebin BUG. Good turnout under the circumstances
Helmets! Bells! Rego!
WHAT A PITY THE GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES AND LEADERS HAVE NOT GOT THE GUTS TO FACE THE FAMILIES OF INJURED OR DECEASED CYCLISTS AND TELL THEM TO THEIR FACE THAT THEY DO NOT INTEND TO SUPPLY FUNDING TO MAKE THE ROADS SAFER FOR USERS OTHER THAN MOTOR CARS. IF THIS IS THE RESPECT SHOWN TO CYCLISTS BY THIS GOVERNMENT THEN I SINCERELY HOPE THAT THEY ARE UNEMPLOYED AT THE NEXT ELECTION.
