A poem was read on the steps of Parlaiment House along with a story of a recent cycling fatality from Bowral NSW of a 15yo boy. It was very touching and a timely reminder on how a brief lapse of judgement can really wreck your day - you can't take responsibility for the actions of others, but by riding in a PREDICTABLE manner and following laws and a good dose of common sense - it gives those people in charge of over a tonne of cyclist-wrecking-equipment the best chance to steer it around us.

I noticed one of the policemen had shaved legs so must be a roadie
