  1. Get a Petition going hopefully from all the States in Australia to get rid of this Helmet Law. Stating that there is a Cyclists Vote out there and they will not take kindly to all the Anti Cycling Right Wing Attitude of the Australian Politicians and that Cyclists want these Politicos to get Rid of this Plastic Hat issue and Present it to Government in Canberra.

  2. Hi Sue,

    Great idea. If you send me a bunch of postcards, I'll distribute them around Brisbane for you!

  4. Hi Sue,

    I'll email you my details. The CityCycle project is supposed to start operation in the 'second half of 2010', presumably June but possibly December!

    I'll put a post card in every bike's basket and hand them out to anybody that hires one - which could be nobody :)

  6. I'll also put them on the windows of cars whose owners park on the outskirts of Brisbane and then cycle into the city to work.

    Cafes are a good idea too and I have many that I know would be interested!
