I believe one should be able to move freely without having to prove who he or she is on demand. It is convenient and pleasant to be able to take a bike for a ride without having to worry about carrying anything.

What a beat up this is. The NSW Gov't can't even give a straight answer for visitors.

"5. Do all adult bicycle riders have photo ID?
Roads and Maritime Services data shows that over 90 per cent of adults in NSW already have either a driver licence or a NSW Photo card. Visitors to NSW will usually have one of the acceptable forms of photo ID. The Roads and Maritime Services website has more information on how to obtain a NSW Photo Card."

Go to the RMS site and nothing about visitors: http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/licence/nsw-photo-card.html

So what do the other 10% do. What if you don't want to carry your passport because it could easily be lost of damaged on a bike?

the money people of which baird is one are making the city unlovable to line3 their own pockets. They seek to remove any non paying person like cyclists. People own a city not the city miners.

I feel compulsory id is an infringement of freedom and discrimination against cyclists - a healthy alternative to most other transport.

I am totally opposed to this. Every time I want to go for a short ride I have to carry an ID, which is so riduculous it is funny.

This is a poorly considered poorly communicated policy. There are dozens of things that could be done to improve the outcomes from this for cyclists that are not being considered

Moving to NSW from QLD and having to spend large amount of money to be able to commute to work. Lights, ID, bell. What a waste of money. Might as well drive and pay tolls. Its also a hassle changing bikes. Either buy 2 of everything or swap it all out. When will pedestrians carry ID or wear bells?
