Melbourne Wheels of Justice rolling on Saturday

This Saturday, May 7, Melbourne's cycling community will gather at Federation Square and ride to Parliament House to show support for the Australian national Wheels of Justice rides protesting the lenient sentencing handed to Adelaide lawyer Eugene McGee. The start will be at 9.30am at Federation Square, along Swanston Street, and protesters will cycle or walk up Bourke St to Parliament. Protesters are asked to leave water bottles with messages for justice written on them upon the steps of Parliament, Spring Street.

McGee, a lawyer and a former police officer, was convicted of traffic offences surrounding the death of cyclist Ian Humphrey, a married man and a father of two. He received a relatively lenient $3100 fine and 12 months suspended driver's licence.
