Fathers Day ride to Bungendore Pie Shop
– North-Siders can meet at Sutton Road/Norton Road intersection at 10:45am
The MRA ACT Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 13th September starting at 7.30pm at the Harmonie German Club. All Committee members will be standing down and some will not be standing for election again. If nobody steps into those roles then the MRA ACT is in danger of not being able to continue the strong and very effective advocacy role it has been doing for nearly 40 years.
I would like to personally thank the outgoing committee for their tenacity, hard work, loyalty, consideration of the large picture, advocacy and continual lobbying on behalf of all riders in the ACT.
The MRA ACT is now in a good place in this Territory, working effectively with Government, having the MASTERS courses funded for 5 years, assisting with the implementation of the outcomes and recommendations of the Vulnerable Road User enquiry, which we responded to and saw many of our recommendations carried. The work to fully implement those recommendations is vital and important and cannot continue without the people to make it happen.
I look forward to seeing volunteers willing to make a difference, at the AGM in a few weeks time.

Footpath parking - quick questionnaire
Fellow rider and MLA Jayson Hinder is looking at the possibility of a footpath parking trial for the ACT.
To help, he is asking for feedback from riders:
• If you don't ride to work now, would you if you could park on the pavement near your workplace?
• Are there any unused 'hidden' spots and corners near your workplace that would be suitable for footpath parking? Send location details and photos if possible.
• In bad weather, when you didn't want to ride to work, would you use the bus instead of your car if you were provided with a MyWays card?
