Dear Folks,

Some more on the Push On debate.

While I'm here, is anyone interested in updating *our* part of Push On?
It is currently languishing at

http://www.pushon.com.au/rides/RidesCalendar_byBUG.asp?BugID=20 and at

Anyone who is interested, please speak up!

There would have been a cost saving in not having to print and insert
Pushon into AC. Whether this was the full reason for the change to
online I dont know.

Online is definitely easier and more versatile and upto date than the
printed version as far as Rides goes, and while I sympathise with
those who like to put their feet up and read the print version, it is
still pretty accessible. Also it should be good for News and Views and
Advocacy work but I dont think it is set up for that as yet - nor is
the BNSW site.  Example- there is nothing in the RTA Issues section
under Advocacy on the BNSW site. Heres one - what about the shocking
state of many city roads? No mention of the recent ATSB study on
cycling fatalities either, or the AAMI study on NSW drivers.

 We still need a full time advocacy officer and plenty of volunteer
assistants to mount campaigns or coordinate action on various issues
(including putting some content on the websites), speak to the media
