We hope to see many of you there.
                     


                    
                    
                     
                      
                       


                      
                      
                       
                        


                        
Bicycle Rider Safety Rally demanding #cycleways4people
                         
 
                         
Bicycle NSW is proud to lead this important rally to demand the Government provide for the safety of bicycle riders in light of their recent announcements that College Street cycleway would be demolished and Castlereagh Street cycleway north not delivered. These decisions demonstrate the Ministers are failing the people and putting lives at risk.
                         
 
                         
We welcome your support to encourage thousands of bicycle riders, family and friends of riders, people who care about the safety on and off our roads, this Thursday June 4th.
                         
 
                         
Below is the key information and attached are some resources to use to promote the event:
