Parliamentary hearings can be a bit stuffy, but if you’re interested, come along. Having a presence there will help demonstrate to politicians that the public’s concerned about this issue (if they haven’t already realised!!). It’s also worth hearing what bike advocacy groups, Andrew Tivendale, and James Cross’s parents, have to say about car dooring and cyclist safety.
Where: Parliament of Victoria, 1 Spring Street, Melbourne
When: Wednesday 23 May at 8.00pm, meeting at 7.30pm outside Parliament.
If you get there late just go inside and report to the front desk – they’ll tell you where to go.
Speakers: Bicycle Victoria, the Road Safety Action Group Inner Melbourne, Amy Gillett Foundation, Andrew Tivendale, the parents of James Cross, and Melbourne Bicycle User Group.

The next BUG meeting will be held on Thursday, May 24th at the Edinburgh Castle Hotel (681 Sydney Road, Brunswick).
The meeting starts at 7 pm. Food and drinks can be purchased there. Members and guests are welcome!
As a special treat we will have a guest speaker aka Ross M., deputy convenor, who will give a presentation on his cycling holidays in Laos earlier this year.
Is there a better way to spend a cold winter evening with listening and dreaming about a two- wheeled adventure in an exotic place???
