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 improving the outcomes for all cyclists.
As part of the strategy to double the number of people cycling by the year 2020 we have identified priorities that need to be addressed by state and local governments, employers and the entire cycling community. These priorities will be the focus of our campaigning and advocacy work in 2016 and beyond.
As part of our broader vision for cycling in Western Australia, we have identifed the following five priorities.
Priority One: A comprehensive network of well-connected and safe cycle routes.
Priority Two: Create safer streets by lowering the speed limit in local residential roads.
Priority Three: Policies to provide adequate end-of-trip facilities in both new and existing buildings.
Priority Four: Funding and resources to promote the benefits of increased cycling.
Priority Five: Funding and resources to promote and encourage evidence-based behaviour change programs.
You can read the details of each of the priorities HERE.
Through our campaigning work we aim to influence, persuade, communicate, facilitate and build partnerships with policy and decision makers across the state.
We are working towards building new, and improving, bicycling infrastructure and facilities. This includes working to develop the bicycling network and improving bike parking throughout WA.
You are welcome to provide us with feedback on these priorities by sending us a message.
