Ted,I can't hear you!


I'm not really the protesting type but on a  cold ,wet, Melbourne  morning,myself and a couple of hundred other frustrated cyclists turned out to make our feelings known.Ringing our bells and chanting'Ted Ted don't be slack,bring our bike funding back'we waited in vain for the premier to make an appearance.With almost zero dollars allocated in the budget for cycling infrastructure, it was time to vent our collective spleens. Did he hear us?Undoubtedly.Will anything change?Most likely not under Ted's rule.Still, there was a good natured vibe amongst the onlookers and I'm pretty sure the policemen on their bikes would have agreed with us.
