So no doubt you’ve heard about this topic of late, and the change.org petition,
I thought a blog on the issue would be a good place for group feedback, please discuss in the comments section at the bottom.
or if you want to sign it….here it is https://www.change.org/p/compulsory-single-file-for-cyclists
‘We, the undersigned, respectfully call on the Transport Ministers of each and every State in Australia, and each State Cabinet, to implement Compulsory Single File for all cyclists who ride in groups, regardless of whether a bike lane exists or not..
We also call on the respective Transport Ministers of Australia to implement a prohibition of cyclists on all roads with a designated speed limit higher than 80kph, if those roads don’t have designated Bike Lanes.
This is one of the better write ups

Here is the Facebook page that started it….some nasty comments on here…
