      Bicycle Victoria Board Elections
      BV elections are coming up soon, and the future of progressive cycling in
      Victoria depends on you voting. BV elections often have low turnout
      rates, so every vote counts.
      Bike Fun Melbourne endorses these candidates:
      Ruth Paterson, Catherine James & Rick Barry.
      But the other candidates might be good too.
      Candidate statments, and their contact details, are here:
      So if you are a BV member, vote!
      And member or not, you can help out candidates with their campaigns
      (chalking, etc) - find contact contact details on the above web page.
