The City of Sydney Council has released its Cycle Strategy today. It ‘aims to increase the number of bicycle trips by 250 per cent in the next five years and 500 percent by 2016. Bicycle trips currently comprise about two per cent of total trips made in the City of Sydney government area.’
The strategy is open for comment till the end of September so it REALLY REALLY important that we out there provide feedback on it. You don’t have to agree with it, love it or even read it – whatever – but email or call the council about it. They log all comments (written, email or telephone) and if bugger all people appear to support it then it could get watered down or worse.
Take a look at the strategy at www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au under ‘Highlights’.
Get advocating people!
