Dear Bicycle User Groups and friends,


With bicycle safety being at the top of rider's minds at present, Bicycle NSW are holding a Rally this Thursday morning.   We would be very pleased if you could attend or promote through your channels.

Details are below and graphics are attached.  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:
-  A3 Posters
-  DL Flyers (3 up on A4 for easy printing and cutting)
-  Twitter and Facebook image
Please consistently share the key details so the community is well informed and aligned on this critically important community action.
Thursday 4 June
8.30am – 9.00am
Martin Place (top end), adjacent to Macquarie St
Our Demand
Bicycle rider safety from NSW Government including #cycleways4people:
1.    retain College Street cycleway until Castlereagh Street north cycleway is delivered
2.    deliver the network of cycleways as per the Access Strategy
-  everyone who needs to safely and efficiently access the city, 
-  everyone who wants a government who are transparent and accountable to the people of Sydney, 
-  everyone who rides a bicycle, 
-  everyone who knows and loves someone who rides a bicycle
What to do
- bring your bike and ring your bells
- if you cannot ride, attend and show your support
- a minutes silence for our friends of NSW and Australia who have died while riding their bicycle 
- laying of flowers to honour the lives lost riding a Bicycle
- please ride safely and show mutual respect for everyone involved
Note: Riders are encouraged to ride the College Street cycleway before this time. Riding College Street cycleway is not part of the organized rally.

many thanks!
