Annual Helmet Law Protest Ride

We are planning to hold our annual ‘Stop Fining Healthy Transport’ ride in Adelaide in support of helmet law reform on Sunday 14th March.

Helmet laws continue to be a barrier to safe everyday cycling.  It is now over thirty years since Australia went it alone on this one, and remains to this day the only place in the world where adults are regularly fined (and fined large sums) for practicing this socially, environmentally and personally healthy form of transport.  We want to end the criminalization of this healthy, environmentally friendly transport choice.

This year, we are focusing less on protest, and more on growing our community. We are asking people to bring a friend in support of this aim.

Details of the ride are as follows:

Date: Sunday 14th March
Start: Meeting at 2PM
The Adelaide 2021 helmet choice Bike ride will start from the north side of Adelaide university footbridge (the side near the ovals/playing fields) and end at “Plant 4” in Bowden. Link to start and end of ride:
