FIVE PRIORITIES TO GET MORE PEOPLE CYCLING
Our Mission is to get More People Cycling More Often and this can only be achieved through a targeted approach to making it easier and safer 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 bike riding community. These five priorities will be the focus of our campaigning and advocacy work. MORE>>
