Monash University’s Sustainable Mobility and Safety Research Group is conducting the CYCLED study to map where and when people are riding in Melbourne. The data generated will help assess current cycling infrastructure and highlight key areas needing improvement. Plus, those who participate in the study will go in the draw to win an e-bike to the value of value of $2,195.
Research has shown that 3 in 4 people would cycle more if they felt safer on our roads. This means that an increase in safe cycle lanes will result in an increase in cycling participation.
However, effective action is currently limited by significant gaps in our mapping of cycling safety priorities.
Data gathered through the CYCLED study will address these gaps and lead to:
- enhanced cyclist safety,
- improved infrastructure planning, and
- decreased injury rates.
The Sustainable Mobility and Safety Research Group aims to improve population and environmental health by making active modes of transport the leading modes of travel in Australia. We really value what they do and are keen to see people get behind such important work.
