Warning - you are viewing a past event
Freestyle Cyclists are holding a helmet optional protest ride – “Stop Fining Healthy Transport”.
The route was specifically chosen:
- To be away from cars and other motorised traffic
- To not cause interference with other road users
- To be safe, relaxed and enjoyable
- Demonstrate various safe bicycle infrastructure design
The planned route can be found at https://goo.gl/maps/2WvYb8U4r1s
We have liaised with the police, and registered the ride with them. At this stage they have not expressed an interest in attending. We do not anticipate any action being taken against those who choose not to wear a helmet but we can’t guarantee that police patrols will not take an interest in us in the course of their normal duties.
We will be approaching various media organisations prior to the ride, and hope for both publicity and even some media presence on the day. So please come along if you can, and feel free to bring along friends and family.
