2 Victorian Transport Plans
There are a number of Victorian State Government documents that relate to bike riding

Mainstreaming describes commitments by governments or government agencies to provide bicycle facilities when major projects or transport investments are being made.
Metropolitan Planning Review
The Baillieu State Government is reviewing the Planning Scheme and processes. This represents an opportunity to get greater consideration for bikes in longer term planning decisions but also short term local developments
VicRoads are working towards a new approach to meeting transport demand in metropolitan Melbourne. The Network Operating Plan aims to better manage 'people throughput' on roads. The Plan will give priority to the mode which can best achieve this goal in a given corridor. These new rules will favour bike riders as we are a low cost, high volume, space efficient mode.
Station User Guidelines
Bicycle Network Victoria was on the Minister-appointed panel to develop a set of design guidelines to ensure future rail stations were designed with the user, and their needs, in mind
Victorian Cycling Strategy
The State Government has launched a ten year cycling strategy for Victoria.
