Since Ted Failyou announced zero allocation in 2012/13 budget for bicycle infrastructure, Bicycles Vic has been simmering and got quite upset. This is the page summarising their concerns and issues and includes a call to arms for the protest: https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/general/change-the-world/93685/ There's not a lot of passion though in the call... IMHO. So what you say? Well, this is worth watching. This is a government friendly and influential lobby group that was caught napping, made their representations after the news was released and then decided that a protest ride was required. How have they organised it? What have they said? Keep an eye on the page linked above. I'm a BVN member and have received three emails since the budget announcement, so they are carefully priming their user base, plus I've seen Harry Barber getting about on radio and TV to spruke the message. BVN are burning up some bucks and time getting this organised. BNV haven't organised a protest for as long as I've been conscious of their existence - so this is a big deal. Just as a measure of how successful the cycling lobby group has been in lobbying for cycling infrastructure funding, check out this graph: A zero allocation has come as quite a shock.
