CARS WILL BE BANNED FROM 9 am SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 FOR THE FREEDOM RIDE.
CARS WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM THE FRONT OF PARLIAMENT HOUSE FOR THE FREEDOM RIDE IN MELBOURNE.
From 9 am motorcycles, scooters, sidecars and trikes only will be allowed to enter Bourke Street from Exhibition Street. Spring Street will be bikes only between Collins and Albert Streets.
This excellent cooperation from the Victoria Police deserves real thanks. Please pass this message on and obey all the road rules on the day. Ride safely.
We have a big area to fill so pass this on to family and friends. A person does not have to be on a bike to attend. If you are on a bike, be on the FREEDOM RIDE
next Sunday, December 1, 2013.
And, we have a strong message to send to our politicians.
WE DON'T WANT QUEENSLAND TYPE ANTIBIKE LAWS IN VICTORIA.
These laws effect your right to pick your mates, to go where you want, when you want with who you want. They can effect you job and where you spend your money. I don't want to live in a state like that.

Good Morning Dale.
I will be in charge of the police facilitating your event on Sunday.
I have liaised with the City of Melbourne and established the traffic plan set out below. Our media unit will put the traffic plan information on the Freedom Ride facebook sites to inform riders of how
to enter the area. Police will also attend the meeting points on the morning to pass on the traffic arrangements.
I am interested to know if you have any marshals arranged to help manage the riders as they gather, ride to and enter the event.
Traffic management for the Freedom Ride to the Victorian Parliament House on Sunday 1st Dec 2013
Police and The City of Melbourne have made the following road closures to facilitate the event:
From 9 am traffic will be stopped from entering Spring Street at the intersections of Collins Street and Albert Street. Motorbikes and scooters will be able to enter Spring Street from the event entry point on Bourke Street
at the intersection of Exhibition Street. The entry point is not for the purposes of police checks but to exclude
motor cars from the area and ensure participant safety.
All parking inside the road closures will be available for motorbikes.
Police request that bikes are parked on the road at an angle to the curb.
At the conclusion of the event the road closures will be
opened to allow vehicles to leave from both ends of Spring Street.
Normal parking and road rules will then apply.
In regards to the spokespeople announced in the media release have you arranged for any audio equipment? Many events use a flat bed truck as a portable stage.
Can you please let me know what you will be using and if you have a time schedule for your spokespeople?
We can arrange for the footpath at the bottom of the Parliament House steps to be kept clear for your use and placement of a vehicle or equipment. That way the spokespeople can face down Bourke Street to address the crowd.
Please give me a call and or a reply email regarding these final details.
