Shared paths and the law

We all have an obligation to share the roads and paths responsibly.

It's timely to remind everyone about the specific rules as they apply to shared paths.  The Department of Transport has a detailed brochure that can be downloaded HERE>>

Cycling tip of the month - advice on keepng warm with Chain Reaction Training

It’s easy to avoid cycling when it starts to get cooler – “it’s just too darn cold” we convince ourselves. But if you know how to dress properly, winter cycling can produce some of your most invigorating and enjoyable cycling experiences.

Lindsay Davies-Moore from CRT advises how to dress for cold weather riding from head to toe. MORE>>

Fixed distance passing legislation - is it the way to go?

Bicycling Western Australia wants to see a dramatic improvement in road safety outcomes for all bike riders and other road users.

Is the introduction of manditory fixed distance passing legistration the best way to go?  There is no evidence to suggest that such laws make it safer for cyclists.  Read our rationale and what we think needs to happen HERE.

Five priorities to get more people cycling

Our Mission is to get More People Cycling More Often and this can only be acheived through a targeted approach to making it safer and easier for people to take up riding a bike and improve the health of the community through cycling.

As part of our strategy to double the number of people cycling by the year 2020 we have identified five priorities that need to be addressed by State and local governments, employers and the entire cycling community. These five priorities will be the focus of our campaigning and advocacy work in 2014 and beyond. MORE>>
