*Rally June 21st Parliament steps Victoria 7:30- 8:30am
No doubt many of you would of heard of the massive funding shortfall for 
cycling infrastructure in the 2012 Victorian State Budget.  In the midst 
of the Victorian government only funding $5m for existing programs and 
the rest of the VicRoads bicycle infrastructure funding being scrapped, 
the WA government have increased their annual state budget to $28m, let 
alone Melbourne City Council funding almost $5m for their entire cycling 

Ride in together!
Meet up with your fellow riders from the north at the Dan O'Connell, 
corner Princes & Canning Street, starting at 7am & we'll ride in 
together to Parliament House in Spring Street.
Melbourne & Moreland BUGs are also organising rides to Parliament House 
in Spring Street. On Saturday 12 May, representatives of several 
Victorian BUGs met and discussed strategies and plans for a upcoming 
campaign to renew, restore and replan bicycle funding in Victoria.
**Bicycle Network Victoria have organised a rally on the morning of 
Thursday 21st June at Parliament House between 7.30 - 8.30am.
