I started a new Group on Facebook: "No mandatory helmets at Velo-city 
Global in Vancouver!" and it would be great if people joined. Thanks!

Here is the description:

"We are happy and delighted that Vancouver has been selected by the 
European Cyclists' Federation as the host city for Velo-city Global in 
2012. The administration and people of Vancouver have made great efforts 
to make their city become more bike-friendly and they deserve this 
honour and challenge.

However, for a variety of reasons we oppose the mandatory all-ages 
helmet law of the province of British Columbia.

Therefore we threaten a mass non-compliance action during Velo-City in 
Vancouver. This will most likely be during the week's group ride, with 
many hundreds of participants.

Will Vancouver police fine all of us? Apparently compliance with the law 
is low and police rarely enforce it. This is good, but I believe a very 
clear message is still warranted. People are still free to wear helmets 
and should not be judged either way!

See you - with optional head gear - in Vancouver in June 2012!"
