If you haven’t already marked it in your diary, please make the time to attend the Zero-bike budget rally in Melbourne tomorrow morning.
Bicycle Network Victoria has called out to all Victorian bike riders to jam the steps of Parliament to condemn the Baillieu Government’s decision to cut funding for bike infrastructure to $0.
Yes, you heard right. Absolutely nothing. Desperately needed lanes, signals, intersections and other urgent safety improvements have all been scrapped.
We need safe roads and bike paths for the growing number of cyclists in Victoria and the short-sighted decision is damaging to community health, congestion and public transport overload.
Join us tomorrow morning to send the loudest and clearest possible message to the Baillieu Government that bike funding must be reinstated.
