Bring a water bottle with your own "Justice" message on it to leave at Parliament

Ride to call for Justice in memory of the cyclists, police and others killed and injured by hit-run, drunk, and careless motorists.

Ride to raise awareness that Motorists and Cyclists SHARE THE ROAD.

Ride to protest lenient sentencing in Sth Australia for the former Police Prosecutor McGee, turned criminal lawyer who cowardly left Ian Humphries to die on the road after knocking him down, McGee later admitted he had been drinking , but wasn't breath tested and was merely fined and disqualified for driving for 12 months.

Ride to demand more Government action to better educate drivers on rights of cyclists as Road users and for stiffer penalties for those motorists who abuse those rights.

Ride as a warm up for the RIDE OF SILENCE on May 18 at 7pm from Black Rock Clock Tower to Mordialloc and back to St Kilda, an annual Memorial Ride in Silence for all riders killed and injured by motorists in Australia and the USA ( 50cities will ride this year in US) see:

Ride because you care about safe roads for your children and our communities.

Ride to solemnly show you care for the avoidable losses to loved ones through motorist's senseless and too often callous acts.
