SBS News-Rest in Peace John Cornish

Cycle Safety
Following the death of John Cornish whilst riding his bike within 200 m of the site of my accident SBS ran a news story on bike safety. The circumstances of his death are frighteningly similar to the cause of my accident. John was an advocate for safe cycling, and it is important that we all take up the mantle to continue his work. It is time for the cycling community to show other road users that they are serious about road safety. In order to gain more rights and respect on the road we must show motorists that we are serious about minimising serious injury and fatalities whilst cycling. The Amy Gillett Foundation has a Road Users Code which is worth a read. It gives a good overview of how…

Bayside Council Vote Was Successful!

Cycle Safety
After years of hard work from a number of people some action has been taken by the Bayside City Council to trial a No Stopping Zone on Beach Road here in Melbourne between 6 AM and 10 AM on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Bayside Council Vote – your support is needed

Cycle Safety
As you would be aware, City of Port Philip and Kingston have already commenced the 12 month trial of 'No Stopping' zones along Beach Rd as a measure to increase cyclist safety. Bayside council is having a meeting tomorrow night at which there is a proposal that they too join these other councils and approve a trial for a 'No Stopping' zone along Route 33 (Beach Rd). There is a group of residents who are highly organised, highly vocal and highly against this 'No Stopping' zone so we need to get a large number of supporters of the 'No Stopping' zone to attend and speak in favour of the proposal. You can speak for 3 minutes but something as simple as "I support the recommendation and urge council to proceed with…

Cycle Safety
A big thankyou to the volunteers and everyone who helped gather signatures. The petition was submitted on Wednesday containing just under 2300 signatures, over 500 from residents of Bayside.
