For more than 15 years, Cycling in Australia & New Zealand has been stuck in the dark ages. Fear, superstition, and ignorance, fueled by misguided campaigns like this one have scared most people off cycling.
Many people have had enough of a counterproductive policy whose main result has been to reduce cycling, at the detriment of health & the environment. A new movement called Freestyle Cyclists has been launched, with the aim of reforming this counterproductive helmet law.
You can join the movement and register your support at Freestyle Cyclists.
