SHARE OUR ROADS

The State Government has launched a new road safety initiaitive aimed at encouraging all road users to "Share Our Roads".  The first stage of the $300,000 campaign will include radio, outdoors ads on bus backs and shelters as well as online promotion.

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.

FIVE PRIORITIES TO GET MORE PEOPLE CYCLING MORE OFTEN

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>>
