Our joint venture with Cycling Australia (CA) became a reality with the registration of the corporation (AustCycle Pty Ltd) in June 2009. It is our shared vision to implement a national cycling training organisation that will support and resource local, accredited training providers to deliver bike-education and/or cycling training to people of all ages and abilities who cycle, in the same way that “AustSwim” swimming lessons are an integral part of growing up and learning about water safety.
The primary objectives of AustCycle are to:
- Reduce the incidence of injury and death through better cycling education; and
- Increase the number of people cycling and the amount of cycling.
The project gratefully acknowledges the following organisations who have contributed substantial funding to commence implementation and who share our vision to ensure access and equity for cycling training and bike education across Australia: Thyne Reid Foundation, the Federal Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts; NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change; and IMB Foundation.
