Cycling down across NSW; up in the city

The latest national cycling participation survey should be a wake-up call to the NSW Government: Step up your game when it comes to cycling policy and action – focus less on fining riders for lack of bells and more on developing quality infrastructure, education and a better culture on the roads.

While cycling participation is down across the state, it's up in the city. 20% of people living in the City, around 42,500 people, ride a bike each week – a figure that's growing. That's down to our long-term program of building safe and connected bike paths and working to educate people on the benefits of cycling.
