Although this video is titled message to Melbourne it is definatly something we need to look at closely. The video is an interview with Andrew Montague who had a lot to do with setting up Dublin’s bike share scheme, Dublin Bikes.

The numbers of riders are the shocking part, great for Dublin but really make you think about our helmet laws and how they are stifling cycling as a every day form of transport in Australia.

Thank you to Michael Rubbo for creating it who blogs on Situp-Cycles.com about bike share (cycling) in Australia.

    Congratulations for planning to set up a bike share scheme. Just be aware that if you want the plan to succeed, you’ll need either an exemption or repeal of WA’s mandatory helmet law.
