Riding a bike should be fun, safe and enjoyable. Period.
However, on Australia’s crowded roads, cycling comes with risks.
The good news is precautions can be taken to reduce these risks and by doing so, we lay the groundwork for a more harmonious relationship between cyclists and motorists.
As is the case in most large, congested cities around the world, cycling across Australia is
rapidly developing from a healthy leisure and sporting activity into a mainstream commuter
transport option. This trend is only going to intensify in the foreseeable future, bringing more
and more cyclists onto our roads during peak traffic periods.
It is important therefore, that the cycling community takes the initiative and
assumes responsibility for maintaining a safe and pleasant
environment for all road users.
We have created iBikeRight to communicate, discuss and develop this leadership opportunity and promote cycling in all its forms.
