    Kudos to Stephen Fleming for suggesting this transformative development. The CycleSafe Network group has been discussing just such a network with the state government and both Newcastle and Lake Macquarie councils. The plan has the support of the Heart Foundation, the Tom Farrel Institute for the Environment, the Property Council, the NRMA and BicycleNSW, and is rapidly gaining support right across the business community.
